Guests Joke About Waterboarding at Cheney Event

Conservatives gathered in New York to roast former Vice President Dick Cheney "at an event where many of the biggest laugh lines touched on the most controversial policies of a key architect of his administration's War on Terror," BuzzFeed reports.

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) "said something to the effect that it's nice that we're all here at the Plaza instead of in cages after some war crimes trial," recalled one person who was there.

The person added: "There were some waterboarding jokes that were really tasteless. I can see the case for enhanced interrogation techniques after Sept. 11 but I can't really endorse sitting there drinking wine and fancy dinner at the Plaza laughing uproariously about it."
