Some of the enhanced interrogation techniques apparently were just like exercising (holding your arms over your head for hours) and jet lag (3 day sleep deprivation). It’s a weight loss program, too!

    At the end of those interrogations one is still alive and with all body parts present and undamaged. Also, interrogated party has face to face contact and ability to communicate with the accuser. Compare that to the “better” method of current administration to cowardly shoot similar people from 40000 feet away, never daring to look them in the eye and demand answers (and maybe in the process kill many truly innocent bystanders). No thanks for that Orwellian language and practice.

  2. McCullough says:

    Kennedy tried to destroy the CIA…it earned him a bullet to the head. This agency is our worst enemy. Don’t believe that…then you are a moron.

    Read into that whatever you like.

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      He tried to destroy the CIA? How so?

      • McCullough says:

        If you can’t answer that yourself..it’s too late for you. History is to be learned or repeated. JFK. RFK, MLK. The Greatest hits.

        • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

          The history that can’t be summarized in a sentence or two is probably made up.

          • McCullough says:

            Ha ha…like you could ever get your point across in 2 sentences. Thats rich. Ipso Fatso, by that logic EVERYTHING you say made up.

            I could suggest some educational literature, but why waste my time, you won’t read it.

          • bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo says:

            McC–you really are babbling like a loser.

            What was it? The multiple mafia connections linked thru “girl friends” of mutual association?

            Oops, thats the Mafia killed Kennedy conspiracy theory.

            What was it? The burned grass on the backside of the grassy knoll?

            Oops, thats the Aliens from Mars killed Kennedy conspiracy theory.

            What was it? Oswalds cheesy CIA connections in his trips to Cuba and USSR?

            Is that the evidence you claim? More Empirical or less Epirical than the evidence for Global Warming?

            Hah, hah. Yea–like “I” don’t read.

            I’d think you’d like to show everyone your thinking on the issue. But you don’t.

            Strange.

    At the end of those interrogations one is still alive /// yea, except for those that died…

    and with all body parts present and undamaged. /// yea, because mental torture doesn’t count….

    Also, interrogated party has face to face contact and ability to communicate with the accuser. /// torture is now “communication? Ha, ha. What a douche bag you are douche-anal. A real piece of shit for a human being.

    Compare that to the “better” method of current administration /// current? as in previous didn’t do the same thing? or worse–initiate wars based on lies?

    to cowardly shoot similar people from 40000 feet away, never daring to look them in the eye and demand answers (and maybe in the process kill many truly innocent bystanders). No thanks for that Orwellian language and practice. /// Orwell wasn’t as ham-fisted as this garbled shit fest, but I do assume English is your second or third or even forth language? Too bad you have no humanity in any of them???

    What a silly, stupid, evil hooman.

    And fully supported by none other than Nancy Pelosi.

    We made crystal clear that authorized techniques, including waterboarding, had by then been used on Zubaydah.” Rodriguez writes that he told Pelosi everything, adding, “We held back nothing.”

    How did she respond when presented with this information? Rodriguez writes that neither Pelosi nor anyone else in the briefing objected to the techniques being used.

      What’s your point JB? Pukes are supposed to advocate insanity and its the job of Dumbo’s to save them from themselves?

      Would that it were, but it ain’t.

      This EXACT torture is against the law.

      Pretty simple low standard to follow.

    At 6:21ish of part 1 theres a total edit…

  7. NewfornatSux says:

    Yea, this story is mostly to make liberals hopping mad, but then when the Democrats take over, they largely repeat the same things, just making some changes for show. For them it was a lie all along, they just needed to string along the base to pretend like they cared. Glad to see Obama adjusted to reality.

  12. orchidcup says:

    For in a Republic, who is “the country?” Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is merely a servant — merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    — Mark Twain

  13. Dallas says:

    Torture is listening to Mitt Romney ramble about Obama to his sheep with background pre-recorded clapping.

    I can’t watch CNN anymore.

    • NewfornatSux says:

      So now CNN isn’t biased left enough for you? Go to MSNBC with its fake liberals like Ed Schulz. Or maybe go to Fox with its fake conservatives, though apparently none as fake as Michael Savage.

      • Dallas says:

        I listen to CNN as background news/noise while I work on my computer or to listen to Fareed Zakaria GPS.

        However, when Mitt starts to stutter speak about Obama, it’s like fingernails on chalkboard.

  14. CrankyGeeksFan says:

    The father of the “underwear bomber” is a prominent Nigerian banker. He went to the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria to report the concerns he had about his son – apparently speaking with two CIA officials. This wasn’t an anonymous telephone tip. The son was not placed on the “no fly” list. This story alone doesn’t bode well for encouraging others in cooperating with the U.S. government.

    In the 1980s, there was a 60 Minutes report on a U.S. medical center that treated victims of torture from around the world. I lament how far away the U.S. has gone.

  15. joejoe says:

    I like this guy. Jose got balls to do what a bunch of wimps from Northern Cal wont do. Jose sleeps well at night and so do I.

    • Thomas says:

      You mean he had the balls to do what he knew was illegal and should have known was ineffective? Fabulous. You do realize that by torturing these nuts it created more terrorists? So, you sleep well at night knowing our government is making us less secure because fanatics like this guy are running the CIA?

  16. Thomas says:

    My impressions when I watched this Sunday:

    1. So, the former head of black ops for the CIA is going to have a “candid” interview with 60 Minutes? Check. Anyone believe that?
    2. His comment in the middle of the interview when he said that after 9/11, we need to “put on our big boy pants” and come up with solutions made me wonder why the boundries of legality mattered? Why care if waterboarding is legal or not if all options are on the table? Why not go the whole hog and go for outright vivisection or electro shock? After all, we’re “putting on our big boy pants” which theoretically means all options are on the table right?
    3. If legality was an issue, it is at best ridiculous and at worst a lie to assume that everyone in the discussions actually thought waterboarding wouldn’t fall under torture. Everyone, including Bush, Cheney and the CIA all knew that waterboarding was torture but tried paint enough grey onto the situation for long enough in the hopes that they wouldn’t be prosecuted.
    4. It is difficult to believe the head of CIA blackops, a group versed in lying, when they say the FBI is wrong about the information gathered before the torture. What incentive does the FBI have to lie about this?

    If this guy thinks that waterboarding and these other enhanced interrogation techniques “made these guys uncomfortable for a few days”, then by all means let’s use it on him. After all, being forced to sit down and raise your hands is akin to a gym workout right?
