    repeating the same claim is not equal to presenting specifics. Mindless links won't answer the question if they don't offer what I'm asking for. To repeat you, think much?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Again, I'm asking for specifics.

    That's the claim. Now present the specific intel so we can verified that the claim is true.

    Is it. Show the IG report. And does the CIA have any interest in this lookign effective? Wouldn't something more objective be better? Again, accepting a claim you want to be true is not equal to proving the claim. I can point to speicific misinformation. Doesn't it bother you that you can't do the same?

    let's see; from your cite:
    John L. Helgerson, the former CIA inspector general who investigated the agency's detention and interrogation program, said his work did not put him in "a position to reach definitive conclusions about the effectiveness of particular interrogation methods."
    [emphasis added by bubba]
    now we come to your repeated refrain:
    "Certain of the techniques seemed to have little effect, whereas waterboarding and sleep deprivation were the two most powerful techniques and elicited a lot of information," he said in an interview.
    but notably, you consistently also omit his statement which immediately followed:
    "But we didn't have the time or resources to do a careful, systematic analysis of the use of particular techniques with particular individuals and independently confirm the quality of the information that came out."
    [emphasis added by bubba]

    busted, prof. you are without a leg to stand on
    but keep parroting the same lines. you may eventually convince yourself that your unfounded argument actually makes sense
    keep killing that veneer of credibility
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
