Cheney & Co. as the new/old Andropov?

Much of this article in the National Interest goes out of its way to bash Obama, but still it is interesting to read about Cheney and his daughter Liz in a conservative publication being compared to former KGB head Yuri Andropov:

images-1Former Soviet leader and KGB Chairman Yuri Andropov would be proud of Liz Cheney’s charge that President Obama’s initial willingness to release pictures of U.S. military prisoner abuses amounted to “siding with terrorists.” After all, Andropov and his prosecutors always argued that Soviet dissidents who exposed human rights violations were guilty of treason. But Ms. Cheney goes even further than Andropov and his associates, who at least pretended that the dissidents were distorting the facts. Liz Cheney makes no such claim, nor any allegation that the pictures were fabricated. Yet despite this she asserts that exposing actual wrongdoing is sufficient to accuse someone of not simply providing comfort to America’s enemies or aiding their propaganda efforts but siding with the mass murderers.
