Does anyone believe the secret CIA program that former VP Cheney illegally hid from Congress (a felony) was really for the capture or killing of Al Quieda terrorists?
I think all Americans would applaud & expect such a program after 9/11 & would certainly have not required such illegal secrecy from our own Congress, nor would have "Turned the stomachs" of Leon Panetta (CIA Director) & Congressional watchdogs when they were recently briefed on it.
I'd guess the program involved much worse things (like killing detainees, torturing them to death, etc) which would have truly turned us into Nazi's.
Cheney & any other high up officials must be brought to justice, if my fears are correct. (of course, we could always blame Lindy English again!)
I know Obama wants to look ahead & forget the past (for political reasons) but we didn't just forgive Nazi or Japanese war criminals after WWII & we need to clean our own house if we ever hope to regain our moral standing in the world.
He's saying it wasn't a covert op because it never moved out of the planning stage into the actual operational stage.
And wow Devil, do you write novels, cause that was a **** ton of conjecture and fiction trumped up to try and look like reality in that little spew you just did.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Also, care to cite what law requires the CIA to brief Congress on plans that are not at the implementation phase?
Nuremberg was bad law then, and Holder's threats of prosecutors is bad law now. It's this pathological pursuit of bad policy and bad law that makes folks on the left lunatics.
The proper course is to let these matters fade into history--but that would require the lunatic left abandoning their unreasoning hatred of President Bush, so of course the lunatic left has rejected it.
