RUSH: Folks, Dianne Feinstein today absolved one Republican from any blame. One Republican had nothing to do with torture. Only one Republican would have stood up and demanded it stopped if he had known. Only one Republican out there would have had the honor and the guts to stop it, and therefore only one Republican is worthy of being exempted and absolved of any blame for all of this torture and all of the assault on our good values and so forth.
Who do you think that one Republican who is blameless is? I ran this by Snerdley, he said, "Ah, that's easy. It's McCain." I said, "Nope, it is not McCain." The one Republican above criticism, the one Republican that would have never put up with this had he known, the one Republican absolved of any blame or involvement is none other than...
FEINSTEIN: There are CIA records stating that Colin Powell wasn't told about the program at first because there were concerns that, and I quote, "Powell would blow his stack if he were briefed." Source: E-mail from John Rizzo dated July 31, 2003.
RUSH: 2003? 2003? We hadn't captured anybody. We had barely -- well, maybe we had, but 2003 was when the Iraq war began. In 2003, Colin Powell, good, loyal trooper went up there to the UN and showed the world all of the weapons of mass destruction installations in Iraq, and, boy, was he fit to be tied when we didn't find any and he felt he had been used. He felt his impeccable character had been utilized to grant Bush and Cheney the same standard when they didn't deserve it. He felt really used. So he got his deputy up there, actually a couple of guys, Richard Armitage and his spokesman, I forget Colonel Colin Powell's spokesman, but there was a third guy and that's when they launched into Scooter Libby and the entire Bush White House trying to frog march any of them out of the White House over the leak of Valerie Plame name.
Now, look what the Democrats are doing. The Democrats have this massive report about all of this torture. I don't know if they've released any names or not. Remember how upset they were that Valerie Plame's name was made public as a CIA agent? Oh, yeah, that was really an assault on our values. But yet today they do this.
so today did Feinstein say , “screw you people that died in the Twin Towers “?
Colon Bowel? What a big surprise! Are his lips still stuck on BO’s backside?
But Rush, being hypocrites doesn’t bother that bunch at all.
Um...I believe Congress had to VOTE to allow President Bush to go to war and that VOTE included Democrats voting YEAH!
Did ‘Rats think this was going to be a cake walk or something? Do they not understand the concept of killing the enemy before he kills you?
Ah yes, Colon Powell and Richard Armitage, the lie-by-omission twins.
DiFi really knows how to pick ‘em.
From escaping being tainted by My Lai, to this.
Two pricks in a pod.
Fineswine is just angry because she lost her perch because the next Senate will be led by the Republicans, so she goes down in flames by ratting on our CIA agents, some of whom may be in danger because of her. She was briefed 30 times on the interrogation methods used and never raised a peep until now.
Sounds like “outing” Valarie Plame is now a good thing.
well her 15 minutes are UP ,LOL
The idea behind releasing this information is to create hostility or the perception of hostility against Americans thus increasing the likelihood of an attack. An attack could come from real terrorists or more likely staged by federal operatives.
The concept s always the same; give the federal government more money and control in the name of protecting the public. More government power, less personal freedom.
the idea is to get the bush name out there in a negative light so as to taint jeb’s presidential run
She knew full well what was going on. This is just flat out partisan politics and it proves once again that for the DemoRATS it’s always party before country.
Waterboard all the rats
That’s what it sounded like
Who in hell is Diane Feinstein to “absolve” anybody of anything? She needs to worry about her own absolution.
“the idea is to get the bush name out there in a negative light so as to taint jebs presidential run”
Doubt it. Tainting a jebbush run is good for conservatives and Diane Frankenstein wouldn’t want to do anything like that.
These guys want another big attack in order to justify more government control.
