    Good...why not go with that (at least in this thread)?

    Anyone that questions releasing the truth is acting unpatriotic imo. Defending the rights and freedoms of the Constitution AND standing up for justice and honor is patriotic, not covering up the truth so a few CIA scumbags don't get retribution for disgusting acts of cowardice.

    No one was drafted into the CIA, they all volunteered. And they have all known for years what went on and that eventually the truth would probably come out.


    I have said it before, disband the f'ing CIA and give their responsibilities to the military and the FBI.
    And while you are at it, get rid of the Department of Homeland Paranoia - er - Security.

    Cowardice is still running national security...grow a spine America. If the only way to win the 'War on Terror (dumbest title for a war in history...a war on an emotion ) is to act like terrorists, then America is no better then those they seek to destroy.

    If the future of America is cowardice, then let America die.

    HOLY ****. They just outed a CIA covert building in Afghanistan. Get our people out of there now!


    He wasn't alone. In September 2002, at a facility referred to as COBALT— understood as the CIA's "Salt Pit" facility in Afghanistan — detainees were kept in isolation and complete darkness. Their cells had only buckets for human waste. Loud noise or music was common.

    A month later, CIA questioners found al-Najjar a "broken man" and on the verge of a "complete breakdown." But the treatment got worse, with officials lowering his food ration, keeping him shackled in the cold and giving him a diaper instead of toilet access, the report says.

    Some detainees at the Afghan facility were marched around naked or dragged out of their cells and forcibly stripped by officers, before being secured with Mylar tape, hooded, and dragged along a corridor while being slapped and punched.

    Rahman was then shackled to a wall in his cell, forced to rest on a bare concrete floor in only a sweatshirt. The next day he was dead. A CIA review and autopsy found he died of hypothermia.....snip~

    Re: Senate panel releases scathing report on CIA interrogation...

    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.

    Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But 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.

    long before "waterboarding" entered the public discourse, the CIA gave key legislative overseers about 30 private briefings, some of which included descriptions of that technique and other harsh interrogation methods, according to interviews with multiple U.S. officials with firsthand knowledge.

    With one known exception, no formal objections were raised by the lawmakers briefed about the harsh methods during the two years in which waterboarding was employed, from 2002 to 2003, said Democrats and Republicans with direct knowledge of the matter. 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)."

    Let it rain....

    I say give them all medals, in secret of course. We need brave patriots that are willing to defend this country, not condemn it.

    A Democrat-led Senate panel released a scathing report Tuesday on CIA interrogation practices amid warnings from lawmakers and some within the Obama administration that the findings could "endanger the lives of Americans" all over the world.

    Ah, the left. Politics above all.
    um wouldn't the illegal torture be what's endangering Americans rather then trying to cover it up?

    Nothing really, it's an old talking point that has been shown to be without substance. If we don't do what Republicans say, the terrorists will get us!

    Then why are the terrorists bad? If you can't make a moral distinction between us and them, then you can't wage a moral war against them.

    Gotta love the perspective of your "freedom" loving Conservatives on this report.
