A "bunch of hooey" ?

Yes President Obama, we did indeed "torture some folks".




Former president Bush said that we did not, but now, of course, we know that is a lie. Or maybe not. Maybe former president Bush was misled as well. I bet Dick Cheney knew that we "tortured some folks". Methinks he protests a bit too much about the release of this report by The Senate Intelligence Committee.


It's not a "bunch of hooey" Mr. Cheney, you should be in jail.




We are now being told that the CIA used tactics that are "brutal and flawed", and according to one of the senators who was responsible for the release of the report; it is a "stain on our values and history."




Those on the right side of the political divide will tell you that this is no big deal, and that this program was needed to stop the next September 11 type attack from taking place in our homeland.




This is the position of Dick Cheney and some of the other apologists for the ignoble and inhuman act that is torture. We know now that this is not true. These torture programs did not stop one terrorist act from taking place on our shores, and it did not help us to kill Osama bin Laden.




So now that we know that America is no different than any other Third World country, and that we do not respect the rule of law; we have to ask ourselves if it was all worth it. I, for one, do not think that it was. But I am just a small time left wing progressive blogger from Philadelphia. Senator John McCain, who was himself tortured, apparently has no love for torturing folks, either. I will defer to him on this subject.




"Republican Sen. John McCain broke with members of his party Tuesday, lauding the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on torture and decrying the use of torture as having "stained our national honor" and doing "much harm and little practical good."


On this we both agree.




For the record, I am no fan of this president's drone program, either. Targeting and killing alleged terrorist (with collateral damage sometimes thrown in) is not a good look for this administration or the country.




But it seems to be something that we have all accepted. And we shouldn't. We should see it for what it is. Like torture, it creates a strain on our democracy and diminishes our standing in the world.




Sadly, though, Americans don't seem to care.




Maybe this report will change some things.

Looks like Democrats Rolling Stoned the torture report.

It was nice of Democrats to let Bush off the hook.

Of course we know why right?

Democrats have lied from the beginning about when/what they knew.

So it's on to the next outrage for the left. Their lust for Bush/Cheney blood will not be satisfied.

We are being told this by traitorous leftists on their way out of power.

There was nothing wrong with what the CIA did to get information from high-level terrorist leaders.

Gratuitous torture for amusement or punishment is wrong. Doing whatever it takes to get information from enemies that saves lives is morally defensible.

Let me ask you this, Mr. Field Negro. In the movie Dirty Harry, the psycho murderer kidnaps a 14 year old girl and buries her alive in a box, with enough air to last 24 hours. The kidnapper is apprehended and admits what he did, but won't divulge where the girl is buried. With little time to spare, Officer Callahan says give him a pair of pliers and ten minutes alone with the suspect and he'll find out where the girl is buried. His superiors admonish him for even suggesting such a thing, and the girl suffocates to death.

If that were your wife, would hesitate for a second to do whatever it took to get the information to save her life?

No matter what techniques were used during the enhanced interrogations of terrorists - water boarding, naked shackling, forced rectal hydration and feeding, and sleep deprivation - anybody trapped in the World Trade Center as it burned would have traded anything to be in the terrorists place when their choices were death by fire or to leap to their death from 100 stories up.

All of the people we caught and interrogated are still alive and healthy today.

Maybe people don't know about it? You didn't mention the lack of media attention to the drone killings of innocents.

Maybe *IF* the media started reporting on all the innocents being killed like they did during the bush regime there would be outrage from your fellow democrats.

But then, since your guy is in the white house I wouldn't expect your party to complain.

Ace Freely said...

The Democrats are lying about what they knew, and what they authorized, in the aftermath of 9/11.

I lived through that -- as did all of you -- and I remember that the nation was divided into two camps on using very harsh measures to make sure this didn't happen again:

Those who vocally approved of such harsh measures, and those who silently approved.

But Democrats pretend to be Tough on National Security only for a cycle or two, the 2-4 years necessary to ride out the nation's turn towards a more muscular foreign policy; then they begin lying about their previous lies (when they claimed they were totally in favor of hounding Al Qaeda to the Gates of Hell) and were always for "smart power" or whatever other euphemism they wish to employ for national weakness and submission to totalitarian Islamism.

And so it goes. The Senate Democrat report actually lets the Bush Administration off the hook, which isn't all that weird, when you consider that if they squealed on the rightward part of the Political Class, that part of the Political Class would squeal on the leftward part, and that of course is what the Senate Democrats want to avoid at all costs.

It's okay to have another 9/11, maybe, but they will avoid responsibility at all costs.

Democrat Filth said...

Jose Rodrigues, a top official leading the nation's post-9/11 interrogation regime, calls the Democrats liars:

The men and women of my former organization, the CIA, are accustomed to frequent and sudden reversals of direction from their political leaders. But the latest twists and turns are especially dramatic.
...

The leaders of the Senate and House Intelligence Committees and of both parties in Congress were briefed on the program more than 40 times between 2002 and 2009. But Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tried to deny that she was told in 2002 that detainees had been waterboarded. That is simply not true. I was among those who briefed her.

There’s great hypocrisy in politicians' criticism of the CIAs interrogation program. In the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, lawmakers urged us to do everything possible to prevent another attack on our soil. Members of Congress and the administration were nearly unanimous in their desire that the CIA do all that it could to debilitate and destroy al-Qaeda. The CIA got the necessary approvals to do so and kept Congress briefed throughout. But as our successes grew, some lawmakers' recollections shrank in regard to the support they once offered. Here are a couple of reminders.

On May 26, 2002, Feinstein was quoted in the New York Times saying that the attacks of 9/11 were a real awakening and that it would no longer be "business as usual." The attacks, she said, let us know "that the threat is profound" and "that we have to do some things that historically we have not wanted to do to protect ourselves."
...

If Feinstein, Rockefeller and other politicians were saying such things in print and on national TV, imagine what they were saying to us in private. We did what we were asked to do, we did what we were assured was legal, and we know our actions were effective. Our reward, a decade later, is to hear some of these same politicians expressing outrage for what was done and, even worse, mischaracterizing the actions taken and understating the successes achieved.

Are you kidding? No they aren't. We managed to torture several of them to death. And it's not like all of these guys we grabbed up were scary monsters, either.

Take Guantanamo: Most of the people who ended up there were nobodies who got turned in for a cash bounty by personal enemies. Our government didn't have any real evidence against them. Out of 779 people once held at Guantanamo, we've released 643 because they pose zero threat. 67 more of them are scheduled for future release.

So ... 91% of the people we've imprisoned at Guantanamo were harmless. Not exactly a great track record.

But who gives a fuck? They're just Ayyy-rabs, not actual people, amirite?

"For the record, I am no fan of this president's drone program, either. Targeting and killing alleged terrorist (with collateral damage sometimes thrown in) is not a good look for this administration or the country."

Personally, I don't agree with this. There's a pretty big difference between the drone warfare we've been engaged in (under both Bush and Obama) and our now-discontinued torture regime.

The areas where we've launched drone strikes are lawless, failed-state parts of the world, where a law-enforcement approach -- capture and extradition -- is not possible. There are no realistic self-defense alternatives for going after terrorist organizations in these regions, besides assassination. (Unless one considers "waiting for the next terror attack" to be a viable option. I don't.)

But when it comes to gathering intelligence, there are plenty of more ethical alternatives to torture -- particularly because torture is an extremely ineffective intelligence-gathering method.

Sometimes it is necessary to resort to doing brutal things in the name of self-defense. However, Bush and company did things that were both brutal AND completely useless and unjustifiable.

Funny, no Senator or Congress or President has labeled racism as a "stain on our values and history."

All that has been said is "Blacks are animals, the black family has no father, and cops kills bm because they had to."

I wonder if Obama will say racism is 'wrong'. It goes against our American values and it will never happen again?

Of course not. Blacks are not valued as much as Middle Eastern enemies.

Josh said...

One of the biggest reasons, I'd argue, most Americans don't really care about "torture" is that it's a wholly subjective topic.

While many on the left-side of the aisle may decry torture, paint Bush a war criminal, etc, they have absolutely no problem in rendition. So, make sure America's not torturing, but it's okay if we outsource it.

That would be like a white guy not himself lynching a black man, but paying someone else to do it, and then claiming he's not a racist and is against lynching. Horseshit!

Another reason is that everyone with a voice decides that sophistry is the best way to define torture. For Pete's sake -- many people conclude that sleep deprivation and blowing cigar smoke in one's face is torture. Anything that causes someone with easily offended sensibilities to cringe is not torture. What happens is that people end up not caring.

After all, was X tortured, or was he simply forced to sit next to pigs blood while listening to Metallica?

In many respects, it's sort of like the cries of "racist" and "sexist" in our nation. Once they pour out over the airways so frequently over the most piddly shit one can imagine, they lose their typical thump and thunder. When I hear "X was tortured," I'll admit: The first thing I think is, "Oh, I bet they insulted Allah in front of a Muslim and made him look at bikini model photos! How cruel."

The point is, that there is a place for torture that is morally defensible, therefore we as a country should admit it and not prevent ourselves the use of a morally justifiable tactic.

Put Dirty Harry or you in the place of a CIA agent, and replace the mayor with the president, and someone is still going to have to die for your to keep your principles.

Again, no one was tortured out of spite or malice, no one died or was ever put in danger of dying. This was not done haphazardly, but to a handful of senior operatives who had detailed knowledge of plots in progress. The people who did this on our request stand by their actions. It is deeply shameful for us as a country to now turn on them because it is politically expedient.

President Community Organizerr said...

From the NYT:

WASHINGTON — As crowds of people staged “die-ins” across the country last week to protest the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police officers, young African-American activists were in the Oval Office lodging grievances with President Obama.

He of all people — the first black president of the United States — was in a position to testify to the sense of injustice that African-Americans feel in dealing with the police every day, the activists told him. During the unrest that began with a teenager’s shooting in Ferguson, Mo., they hoped for a strong response. Why was he holding back?

Mr. Obama told the group that change is “hard and incremental,” a participant said, while reminding them that he had once been mistaken for a waiter and parking valet.

When they said their voices were not being heard, Mr. Obama replied, “You are sitting in the Oval Office, talking to the president of the United States.”

For Rasheen Aldridge Jr., 20, a community organizer from St. Louis who attended the meeting, it was not enough.

----

What an amazing sense of entitlement young Rasheen has. A personal audience with the President just doesn't cut it for him.

Maybe the whole goal is to be aggrieved, therefore no amount of "being heard" is ever going to make them happy. You think?

And what kind of douchebag thinks being a waiter or a parking valet is shameful? Who hasn't been mistaken for a store clerk or business employee at some point in their life? Obama seems unable to think about any issue except how it personally relates to Obama.

Back to the NYT:

… “I’m being pretty explicit about my concern, and being pretty explicit about the fact that this is a systemic problem, that black folks and Latinos and others are not just making this up,” Mr. Obama said, referring to his response to the killings in Ferguson and on Staten Island, where Eric Garner, 43, died after a police officer restrained him with a chokehold. People may be frustrated that he has not taken sides in the cases, Mr. Obama said, but “that I cannot do, institutionally.” He hinted that in private, his reactions have been stronger.

“I’ll leave it to people to speculate on what I’m saying to myself or Michelle when we’re alone at night,” the president said.


Let's burn this motherfucker down? Kill whitey? He is leaving it pretty open.

The people who authorized torture are the same people who lied us into a war that caused hundreds of thousands of deaths and untold suffering. Prosecuting them for torture would be like prosecuting Al Capone for tax evasion. But Democrats haven't even done that. It is good that Democrats at least released the torture reports, but they haven't prosecuted the war criminals or the Wall Street criminals who collapsed the economy. Barack "Just look forward" Obama squashed Spain's attempt to prosecute war crimes and his Justice Department defended Donald Rumsfeld against torture charges with your tax dollars. Both parties are fascist.
