I’m linking to a couple of other blogs concerning the document dump and the attorney general’s announcement that an independent investigator will be looking into alleged criminal activities during the interrogation of terrorists.
Sorry – will be kind of busy for the rest of the week, but here is some reading for you.
- The CIA report: what does it say?
- CIA Interrogation report vindicates Enhanced Interrogation Techniques
- Cheney: “This news serves as a reminder about this Administration’s ability to be responsible for our nation’s security”
And quickly, so much for this statement…
On the other hand I also have a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards. And part of my job is to make sure that for example at the CIA, you’ve got extraordinarily talented people who are working very hard to keep Americans safe. I don’t want them to suddenly feel like they’ve got to spend all their time looking over their shoulders and lawyering.
And the video… do you remember who Bob Fertik is?
