    I'm sure a skilled government interrogator is well aware of this kind of thing.

    Think about it for a moment....Has Al Qaeda ever attacked us without loudly claiming the responsibility? Has that ever been the smart thing to do? Of course not. But they love an audience.
    As is noted in the IGs report, most of our skilled interrogators had retired or otherwise moved on when 9-11 hit. The report reveals a lot of scrambling to find manpower. They brought in people who were not experts in interrogation, but were experts in somewhat related fields.



    Hanns Scharff was a renowned/infamous Nazi interrogator who was known for getting info out of Allied soldiers with unmatched skill. He was such a good interrogator that the US brought him here to teach our guys.
    You might imagine that since he was a Nazi and presumable had access to whatever techniques he could dream up that he used grotesque and bizarre tortures to get people to talk. But instead he would use a game of chess or a walk around the grounds.

    This doesn't sound like denial to me.

    Can you name any acts of terrorism against us for which we haven't identified a perpetrator?

    Why would I be embarrassed? I linked you to a legitimate news source, you're directing me to a conspiracy theory site.
