Like I’ll believe anything a muslim convert says..
NBC reporter bashing hard, of course not mentioning that what she was describing wasn’t actually done by the CIA, but by nationals of the nations they were taken to, where IT WAS NOT ILLEGAL.....
Is CIA Pick John Brennan Blackmailing Obama Over 2008 Passport Breach
Key witness in (presidential) passport fraud case fatally shot [old article]
Washington Times ^ | 4/18/2008
A story that would’ve ended quietly with barely a thud is now raised to a scandalous level with Brennan’s televised response. This is a clever way to smack Republicans down. Brennan should’ve just let the sleeping dog lay, but like the good saboteur he is....
cnn.com’s top story is an interview with a Gitmo prisoner who details the “horrors”. Why?
Far too obsequious toward Obama and apologetic for his agency’s acts. The only thing he said which had some teeth was that the Senate report covered practices ended 7 years ago when the Emperor assumed office and imposed purity on these rogues. The fact it all occurred 7 years ago is a pretty clear indicator the report was just a parting shot at GW. I would have a lot more respect for this guy if he had announced he was resigning in protest over the unfair treatment of his personnel who were fighting a dirty war as best they could.
“cnn.coms top story is an interview with a Gitmo prisoner who details the horrors. Why?”
Someone reminded CNN that the addresses of their reporters could be published next. That killed Ferguson real quick.
he seems to be clearly setting up certain individuals for prosecution , referring to their failings.
we will see whom they are
It is time for any & all CIA types that have the goods on Obama and crew to let fly .
The gloves are off
bump for links, thanks Maggief
Let’s get real here and it’s been reported in the past:
“The freakin Senate Intelligence Commitee was apprised of this as it was occuring”.
No one said “Hey, that’s not what we’re about. Stop”
Here are just some examples of what really happened and don’t fool yourself about any lady or grandmother being saintly and sweet.
In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA’s overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.
“...on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.
“The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough,” said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange.”
The lawmakers who held oversight roles during the period included Pelosi and Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Sens. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) and John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), as well as Rep. Porter J. Goss (R-Fla.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan).
See any freakin democrats on that list?
Fk them and their pure as the driven snow and high moral standing.
They approved of it and wondered if we could do more.
Like what? Serve em a birthday cake?
Cuz the sure in the hell wasn’t what they were asking.
None of the other lawmakers briefed raised formal objections. Those lawmakers included former Sen. Bob Graham (D-FL), former Sen. John Rockefeller IV (D-WV), former Rep. Porter Goss (R-FL) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KN).
“Individual lawmakers’ recollections of the early briefings varied dramatically, but officials present during the meetings described the reaction as mostly quiet acquiescence, if not outright support,” the Post added. ‘Among those being briefed, there was a pretty full understanding of what the CIA was doing,’ said Goss, who chaired the House intelligence committee from 1997 to 2004 and then served as CIA director from 2004 to 2006. ‘And the reaction in the room was not just approval, but encouragement.’”
There are more articles detailing just who knew and approved of this but, suffice to say if George Bush was such a bastard what does that make Pelosi and Rockefeller?
Dianne did not do her friends any favors and I hope the alternative media, at least, picks up on this.
If the Democrats want to serve as moralists, in hindsight, then let’s put everyone on the same pile of crap they are shoveling.
Pelosi briefed on waterboarding in ‘02 ?
S what every article on that subject and about that day says.
Brennan is a lying piece of horse manure trying to save his behind.
What happened to the reports that he was threatening to quit if the report was made public?
” an we fell short in holding some officers accountable for their mistakes”
here it comes .....
Hold them ‘accountable’ when Obama is held accountable ....
” it’s crap “
What does that have to do with my question?
