"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
Thousand and One Nights for the purists, once the interrogator grew bored they should have been tried, convicted and executed.
The jury is not actually out. That lying sack of excrement, the treasonous Dianne Feinstein gave aid and comfort to our enemies. She and her Democratic hatchet holders damaged the nation and its ability to protect us. In addition she lied about interrogations not providing information that could be turned into intelligence.5, 10, even more years depending upon the subject in question. The jury is still out on the matter of all the torture doing something meaningful for intelligence operations.
You conflate the actual mission of the intelligence agencies that comprise the intelligence community and the political instrument that it has become. The intelligence community is supposed to gather intelligence about foreign enemies. Instead it has been turned against American citizens. This is unconstitutional and extraordinarily dangerous. This is worthy of a revolution in and of itself.Our own citizens even distrust our own government with these abilities to spy on and go after us as well.
Trite. Old. Worn out. Hackneyed phrase.This is the real consequence of being the world's police department in the manner we have gone about it.
Grow up. Stop wetting the bed.Where the hell are our ethics? Our principles as a nation given the results we see today from all this?
