    5 Explosive Revelations Leaked from Senate Report Exposing CIA Torture

    5 Explosive Revelations Leaked from Senate Report Exposing CIA Torture | Alternet"The controversy over a Senate investigation documenting the Central Intelligence Agency’s post-9/11 regime of global torture continues to generate headlines—even though the report has yet to be released. he Senate report has sparked a bitter war between the CIA and senators like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who accused the CIA of spying on those looking at CIA documents on torture.
    But while the official inquiry has not been published, dogged journalists have published key—and disturbing—details of what is contained in it."...snip
    "1. Black site at Guantanamo."snip
    "2. CIA used British-controlled island."snip
    "3. CIA handed over prisoners who are now dead."snip
    "4. CIA went beyond legal memo."snip
    "5. CIA lied about number of prisoners
    ."snip

    You should read the article to understand the details?
    Should the CIA be allowed to lie?
    Should the CIA be allowed to redact anything in this report?
    Does this sound like the "American Way?"
    Who initiated torture in the USA?
    Should torturors be prosecuted?

    Of course criminals should be prosecuted. But I am not sure you and I would agree on which interrogation techniques were criminal.

    Absolutely none of the bolded items are new. Moreover no they should not be prosecuted. It should be buried as much as humanely possible to allow us to move forward unhindered.

    DaveFagan only reads ultra-left and conspiracy theorist rags.

    I did the same thing - noticed it came from alternet, laughed, and dismissed it.

    I'm still waiting for you to tell what you invented as an "inventor" with "patents" that corporations/banks conspired to keep from being "on the shelf."

    Here's what George Washington had to say about torture:

    "Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any [prisoner]. . . I do most earnestly enjoin you to bring him to such severe and exemplary punishment as the enormity of the crime may require. Should it extend to death itself, it will not be disproportional to its guilt at such a time and in such a cause... for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to themselves and their country."
    -- George Washington, charge to the Northern Expeditionary Force, Sept. 14, 1775


    And here's what the Bible had to say about torture, from Acts 22:

    The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him. And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, “Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?” When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying,

    “Take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman.” Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, “Tell me, art thou a Roman?” He said, “Yea.”

    And the chief captain answered, “With a great sum obtained I this freedom.” And Paul said, “But I was free born.” Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.


    It's sadly ironic that those on the oh-so-'Christian' Right ignore what the Bible says about torture.
