Enhanced interrogation techniques and the CIA

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.

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?

    Can you say "flip-flop"? Remember folks, these are TERRORISTS not Americans, the CIA had every right to torture them.

    One has to wonder why, if these guys are so innocent and deserving of kid gloves, supermax prisons are being cleared to house them.  Why not just leave them in Gitmo?

     

    Oh yeah, a campaign promise.  Why does he only keep the ones that hurt the U.S.?

     

    And the first time that a terrorist is successful, you can bet it will be "the CIA's fault" for not using enough "comfy chair" interrogation.
