When the level, non-partisan, and genuinely sympathetic report regarding the allegations of serial torture from Senator Feinstein’s committee was published (Sorry about the sarcasm) the usual suspects collectively cleared their throats, and unanimously condemned this bunch of criminals masquerading as employees of the CIA; for their terrible and illegal approach towards people whose only real ambition in their lives was to kill Americans. I would have thought that the first thing any committee, intent upon carving a way through the lies and serial attempts at covering up the truth about the nasty things which were alleged to have been done to these men, all of whom were seemingly arrested whilst on holiday in terror-strewn lands, would have been to interrogate the CIA leaders, ex-leaders and CIA staff who were engaged in these alleged acts of torture.

The rebuttal, shown on the website, is fairly damning to the Majority report, produced without a single interview from any senior or ex-senior CIA staffer. Reading through a small selection of rebuttal documents shows that both the White House and the Administration were briefed, aware, and approved of the techniques used to gain intelligence about people who were planning to kill Americans.

I applaud the CIA for their stance, but of course fully expect the Obama Administration to condemn the CIA, because after all, those nasty Republicans knew what was being done in America’s name, and all those orange jump-suit detainees were all completely innocent; well nearly all, except possibly one or even two bad apples, and they were picked up by mistake, possibly on jay-walking charges.

  1. FEINSTEIN is just a bag of bitter bile, much like what was being spewn here on this site by the vile yesterday. Devastated the loss of power she tries to harm here own country.

    We Americans are the ultimate torturers in the world. Look at all we beheaded, gouged their eyes out, crucified, taken their daughters into slavery yes we have mishandled our prisoners.

    ooohh wait….

  2. “We Americans are the ultimate torturers in the world.”

    Nobody on here is saying that Troll. However, what is now happening in the Middle East is a direct result of American (mostly, as it was Juniors idea) and British (Blair the warmonger) meddling in Iran. By trying to bring democracy to people who neither understand or want it, we have unleashed IS and it’s ilk.

    So we are responsible for a lot of it, yes.

  3. Matt’s not wrong in that.

    Iraq was not behind 9/11, and we didn’t understand that tortured country at all.

    The French tried to warn us, and we made fun of them.

  4. yes The Marquess of Queensberry rules… ok yo yanks follow these rules will judge you while we we make excuses for all other peoples, of the world.

    If defending ones country is partisan than I am a partisan. As I said if you can be stirred thus by the rantings of a bitter old loser like Feinstein than be spurred. If you think that what we did to the jihadies was outrageous be outraged.

    This topic isn’t worth the time. Look at the idiocy

    No what’s happening there now is the result of terrorists killing 3000 of our people in a sneak attack, and then a President retreating from his obligations.

    Keep foaming at the mouth while you get excited over the bitter rantings of an old lady who just lost half her government perks.

    Remember the war is not over, and Iraq and Afghanistan are only front’s in the war. Much more is coming.

    There are 771days that we have to continue this nonsense here at home, but don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about the rest of you, your just not important.

  5. Copied from my comment on Pete’s thread on this:

    The torture-lovers would applaud accept the routine use of extreme torture (not just water-boarding) on all terror suspects, even if that puts the USA in the same camp as some of the most odious regimes in the world.

    Troll, does this match your views?

  6. Troll,

    The attack on Iraq had nothing, zero or zilch to do with defending the USA. It was purely Junior’s juvenile wish to finish what his father had started (even though the right decision was made in 1991 not to finish off Saddam).

    The consequences have been disastrous for the Middle East not that you care.

    Shock and Awe, Yee Haw!

  7. Defending torture is now considered taking a patriotic stance according to tea party conservatives.

    Bin Laden must be rolling with laughter in his watery grave.

  8. The US torture of prisoners (including the innocent) occured over the course of the years, and involved at least one death. It appears to have involved slightly over one hundred prisoners. In Mike Cunningham’s South Africa that wouldn’t even be the total for a day.

  9. And mind you unregulated physical torture of people merely on the word of the government’s spy agency is roundly applauded by people like Mike and Troll who cry Big Brother over anti-smoking legislation.

  10. Matt you’re not a bright man your comment proves that. go read my comment on the other post sonny.

    No

  11. I’m making fun of the stupidity of your Iraq comment above, see you’re so bright at figuring things out.

  12. Troll,

    Saddam may have been many things but he wasn’t an islamist or a fool. He posed no threat to the USA or the UK for that matter. He was all bluster. He had no vested interest in becoming a martyr.

    If Junior really wanted to reduce the threat to the USA he should have gone after Iran which was and still is a bigger threat than Iraq ever was but Iraq was the softer target.

    Shock and Awe, Yee Haw!
