    The same can be applied to supporters of torture and murder of detainees. They continue to insist that such atrocities result in actionable intelligence but have thus far been unable to cite a specific and detailed example. Hollow statements from morally bankrupt people.

    This was a democratic party hit piece against the CIA and the nation.
    That's ok, most of us Dems think the Cons are the traitorous lot that hates America.

    I do not.

    You don't support any kind of torture. That is a nice, safe, easy statement with no actual meaning. But you do have the luxury of making statements that have no actual meaning.

    But you believe this somehow makes a difference...

    "not really. our country is still engaged in perpetual war, even though history proves that strategy to be a potential road to even more conflict, and eventual collapse."

    It is as if you went to sleep, woke up and typed the first thing that came into your mind.

    In addition, can you explain your statement?

    " Our country is still engaged in perpetual war..."

    Okay. Nearly all of history is the history of mankind at war with mankind.

    "...even though history proves that strategy to be a potential road to even more conflict..."
    Is perpetual war a strategy? To what end?

    If war is perpetual doesn't that mean more conflict?
    yes. if we maintain a state of perpetual war it will lead to more conflict, as it has for several decades now. if we continue participating, there will be another war even if IS is defeated. and it doesn't matter who we torture; the result will be the same.

    the US has to get out of the pro bono global police business and instead concentrate on rebuilding our own country.

    Unless you are on the inside I cannot imagine how you can make such a statement. But it is clear that you have read and accepted the traitorous Democratic Party talking points. Good for you.

    I do agree that the Left's echo chamber effect where one traitor says something and the rest of you suck it up and regurgitate it on command does equal hollow statements from morally bankrupt people.

    And yet it was a Democrat, the traitorous Dianne Feinstein, who did this damage to this nation at this time.

    Did Dianne Feinstein torture anyone?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
