Posted on 04/21/2009 6:33:45 PM PDT by jimbo123
President Obamas national intelligence director told colleagues in a private memo last week that the harsh interrogation techniques banned by the White House did produce significant information that helped the nation in its struggle with terrorists.
High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qaida organization that was attacking this country, Adm. Dennis C. Blair, the intelligence director, wrote in a memo to his staff last Thursday.
Admiral Blairs assessment that the interrogation methods did produce important information was deleted from a condensed version of his memo released to the media last Thursday. Also deleted was a line in which he empathized with his predecessors who originally approved some of the harsh tactics after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

We should not be surprised that a communist mole traitor, once in the White House, would try to dismantle America’s defenses.
You may want to ask the moderator to put this in the breaking news section where it belongs. That is big.
They knew he’d pull this and they are ready to fight.
Obama should know better than to mess with the CIA and the former administration. If anyone knows about his background it’s them.
Someone should ask the Admiral who in the Osama administration told him to cut those two lines from the memo that was released to the press...
He held back the pertinent points in the public release ...so we have another silver-tongued, obfuscating cretin.

Obama Osama ordered the Admiral to “edit” the memo.
I should have said “ordered” him not “asked” him. These disgusting socialists only give orders.
It’s clear that Obama is doing the bidding of his muslim masters in Pockiston.
Just as we said. This was his plan all along. I am not surprised, just depressed.
Let’s hope upon hope this marks a new era of leaked CIA memos to the press. This time, it needs to sink this bastard in the White House before he destroys this nation.
How is Baghdad Bob Gibbs going to spin this?
What ignorant, self-righteous tools these people in Chairman Barry’s admin are.
Damn! I knew that the story had legs and was glad to see Cheney's return salvo yesterday... not in my wildest dreams would I imagine that confirmation would begin to appear in the MSM within 24 hours. And in the NY Times, no less!
I see it's up top at Drudge... I wonder where it will be placed in tomorrow's NYT.
Not surprised....because I do know who Obama is working for.
After reading the entire article, it is clear that this admiral has no backbone and has backed off his earlier statements that supported the enhanced questioning of terrorists.
