    Criminals. Thats what they are, plain and simple. The CIA is filled of many criminals. War criminals. Torture. Lying to the American public, hell even to themselves.
    How about you join the CIA and help clean the place up?

    Let's just eliminate the CIA, just like flushing the toilet. Problem solved. It appeared that when Jimmy Carter tried to shut them down, they sold out to the Saudis. You know, got the Saudis to pay the bills. Now, who would that imply loyalty to?

    What!? Our government breaking rules and regulations against it? No...I don't believe it. And of course even if they do it in this case, they assuredly would not do so against us, their own people. Nope. Never.

    I like how many "very conservative" ideologies...ideologies that once focused on the restriction and regulation of government...makes such blanket excuses for abuse of government and exalting it breaking its chains.

    Oh no don't get me wrong we should certainly privatize the whole torture thing, but since no one is clamoring for privatization I have to work with what I got.

    Out of control? What, torturing bad guys is out of control, and leads to government torturing good Americans? They get away with it precisely because the vast majority of American's actually like the idea of killing the bad guys. If there's a little information gathering in the process, it's not enough to turn most American's or for that matter western culture's attitudes against it. If it were otherwise, regardless of what average American's thought, if I were in charge, I'd continue, JUST LIKE WE STILL ARE!

    Then perhaps you could explain what it is you think "verifiable information" means, exactly? Thanks!

    If they break rules, they break rules. What makes you think they'll mind the rules for you once they've demonstrated willingness to ignore them?
