Barack Obama: After 9-11, the “US Tortured Some Folks”
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 8-1-2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 08/01/2014 3:35:42 PM PDT by servo1969

At his press conference today Barack Obama accused the United States of torture. Obama drops drone bombs instead. In his mind, it’s more ethical. The AP reported, via Free Republic:

President Barack Obama says in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the United States did things that were wrong and crossed the line. He says, quote, “we tortured some folks.”

Obama is commenting on a Senate investigation into the CIA’s interrogation techniques. A report on that investigation’s results is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Obama says it’s important to remember how horrified Americans were after 9/11. But he says it’s important to remember the U.S. must live up to its values.

Obama also says he has full confidence in CIA Director John Brennan.

He's not referring to himself. And by that I mean America.

>>He says, quote, “we tortured some folks.”

I say, quote, “we didn’t torture them enough, or enough of them, and we didn’t properly make those muzzie savages disappear afterwards”.

No BamBam. On 9-11, the Muzzies tortured over 3,000 folks. There, fixed it, you assclown.

As horrific as this is, I thank you for continually posting this.

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

After 9-11, muslims still murdered untold thousands of people, and decimated many lands, solely for those people not being muslims like themselves. If not here, they’ll continue murdering until they are either vanquished, or they manage to kill off all of the infidels. That is how islam works. Convert, or be killed, is the way of the muslim.

Hearing that turd refer to anyone as “folks” has the same effect on me as fingernails on a blackboard.

Even reading it in a quote makes me cringe.

I’m not sure why.

"The Dims are going to make this THE story building up to the 2014 elections. They’ve been working on this for over a decade, but it’s going to be “coincidentally” released in the next few months. This is their October surprise, and my guess is when it hits the MSM, it’ll wipe everything else off the front page from now until November."

Folks don’t get tortured, you evil, treacherous impostor. Enemies get tortured, and so they should.

"Hearing that turd refer to anyone as “folks” has the same effect on me as fingernails on a blackboard."

I feel the same way. Some theories...

(1) It's a precursor to the certain knowledge a lie is about to be uttered.

(2) It's the equivalent in meaning to the German Volk and thus has negative connotations to English speakers.

(3) It's shorthand for 'white folk', as used by him on numerous occasions.

(4) It's just too avuncular by half. It's the verbal equivalent of the 'bunny hands' he performs when descending stairs from a plane.

What is up with this folking Obama? - “some folks”, “these folks”, “most folks”, “white folks”, “black folks”, “ordinary folks”, “folks in Washington”.

It doesn’t really matter if we did or didn’t. It matters that the President of the United States of America accuses a former President of doing this. This is what Banana Republics do. Maybe Obama can have a truth commission and some public show trials.

Dims are crazy if they think the torturing of a few Muslim terrorist “folks” is going to energize the non-moonbat part of their base come November.

Most sane Americans remember what happened to 3,000 Americans that day. Frankly, I don’t care if some non-Americans were tortured to keep America safe after that horrific act by RoPers.

Compared what “they” do,
“we” just tickled them under
the chin.

“They” are just “folks.”
The people who slaughtered us.
Like any Tom, Dick or Harry
walking down the street.

You walk into a room full of
nice men and women, and you
say, “Hi folks!”

These men and women then turn
on you and slit your throat
and force you to watch as your
blood spills out on the floor
and then begin to saw your head off
before you are dead.

As in, “They really are a nice
bunch of folks.

We are dead, dead, DEAD because
we are the type of “folks” who
would re-elect this farce.

The degenerate anti-Free-America fool should be in prison. His kind of “folks” live there.
