Obama: 'We Tortured Some Folks'
By KATHLEEN HENNESSEY In startlingly blunt phrasing, President Obama on Friday acknowledged the CIAs use of brutal interrogation tactics in the years after the Sept. 11 attack, even as he defended the agencys top spy, who is a veteran of the era.
We tortured some folks, Obama said to reporters during a news conference Friday. We did some things that were contrary to our values.

Could we call it living Free?
We have ALL been tortured since Commie Obama was elected..do we get some kind of compensation for that
So freaking tired of this “folks” crap. Educated adult professionals just don’t continually talk like that about serious matters.
What is his point?
We were savagely attacked on 9/11 by people who are not navel gazing about how they didn’t live up to their highest ideals. Nobody in a wartime situation lives up to the letter of their highest ideals.
This is Saul Alinsky horse blank. One of Alinsky’s rules for radicals is that you make your enemies live up to their own standards, otherwise you call them out for their hypocrisy.
So in this case, Obama is going Alinsky on America, saying we didn’t live up to our highest ideals in what we did in a response to 9/11.
And I don’t give a blank that Obama and liberals want to be so self critical of our own country. Not when feral savages are still at war with us, still wanting to destroy our way of life.
Six Million fingers? Try 100 Million!
He’s shotgunning issues to detract from his conspiracies to weaken the country and Israel.
Every other day or so he brings up a minor issue or something from the past and the media reports it as if it’s a top 5 issue of the day.
This week is started with the WH talking about impeachment.
He's a masterful agitator, in the worst sense of the word, while he's completely inept in every other respect.
How about one billion ... Down ... We don’t fool around!
Yes, Mr. President Obama, and you KILLED some “folks” with your drones. And you proudly claim that you are good at killing people. At least the “folks” survived the torture Bush/Cheney inflicted on them.
I can barely watch or read news any more without a rise in BP.
Krauthammer just said we gave 11 bill for Iran to talk to us and now we have given them 2.5 bill more. All this bribery and nothing in return. The Hero of Benghazi is just sloughing money to terrorists and enemy states.
How many more things have to be wrong and even dangerous, before we remove the guy?
Since when does any administration admit expediencies used unless they want to hurt the country?
It isn't like they were caught running guns to drug cartels or something.
Obama’s talking about his co-religionists.
Nah, wants to feel da love again.! These issues are what he used to get elected, he is using the same tired crap to fire up the voters in November. I look for Valerie Plame, AbuGraib, Katrina, and no WMDs in Iraq to be trotted out real soon.
yes, and one day missions will be sprayed and that day could be today. A cloud hangs.
Active Duty ping.
“WE” didn’t torture anyone. The Federal Government tortured “some folks”.
I feel like the Federal Government is an alien presence squatting on the Potomac.
seen Joe ... Joe?
