    That's old, and I warned you then about merely accepting the word of anyone:

    A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques.

    (Snip)

    "The CIA described [its program] repeatedly both to the Department of Justice and eventually to Congress as getting unique, otherwise unobtainable intelligence that helped disrupt terrorist plots and save thousands of lives,” said one U.S. official briefed on the report. “Was that actually true? The answer is no.”


    CIA misled on interrogation program, Senate report says - The Washington Post

    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.

    A little better. At least an effort was made. Unfortunately cites from websites the tout extreme positions are substantially BS.... and nothing clogs the Internet pipes faster than BS.

    All your BS (off topic) sources address torture for confession and unverifiable information. So spare me the false claims. Torture for verifiable information works. Deal with it.

    You are a waste of my time. You and your pal don't deal well with facts. Now run along, you're boring me.

    I suspect he feels the same way about people who claim to be socialists. Your posts have demonstrated your fear and loathing of most gun owners

    Thanks for doubling down on your untenable position. I obviously have been out shouted.

    Senate report to which I (and Boo) linked contradicts Panetta's claim.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
