Skip to comments.The real story behind the release of the CIA ‘torture’ report

Senate Democrats and President Obama have moved up to a whole new level of desperate.
On Tuesday, Democrats in the Senate, who will lose control of the chamber in just three weeks, released a report focused on interrogation techniques during the administration of George W. Bush.
Yes, Mr. Obama is all about transparency, as long as its not about his administration. Despite warnings from top Obama officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, that release of the once-classified report would endanger Americans abroad, the president demanded that the United States explain its actions to terrorists.
In some ways, the interrogation techniques detailed in the 500-page report were brutal. The CIA used waterboarding, sleep deprivation, isolation, starvation to break enemy combatants captured in the fields of war. One suspect never charged with any crime died of hypothermia. The Central Intelligence Agency also set up secret black sites in numerous places around the world where captives were held, sometimes for years.
The reason for the in some ways qualifier above is that the techniques were set up just six days after Islamic terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing 3,000 people. While Mr. Obama on Tuesday said whats clear is that the CIA set up something very fast, without a lot of forethought to what the ramifications might be, the fact remains that in the dangerous days after Sept. 11, 2001, America was, for the first time, at war with a foe that felt no remorse in targeting U.S. civilians, even children.

WAGGING THE GRUBER is my guess.
Who benefits whenever Senator DiFi sponsors legislation...
Follow the money to the Billionaire Money Pit....
So, the party who tried to blame violence on a video is now provoking violence in an effort to actually spill the blood of US citizens and allies. There as sick as the
Good point and right on the mark.
Remember, this feckless traitor was once almost recalled as mayor of San Francisco. What does that tell you?
Democrats are pouty, spoiled brats.
Remember how they took all the “W” keys off the computer keyboards when the Clintons vacated the White House and George W. Bush moved in?
They would rather see the entire United States go down the toilet than to lose political control.
Their allegiance is to the democrat party and their liberal agenda - not to the USA.
Exactly, and what a petty juvenile thing to do.
Like ACA, not one single republican voted to support the release of this “report”.
And the first thing Senate Majority Leader Cruz should do is Ban them from ALL Committees. They cannot be trusted
Now when (not if) ISIS commits a major terrorist on US soil, the MSM and democrat party can blame Bush
Oh, they have that narrative ready and waiting to go.
This is nothing but Democrat kabuki to obscure the Gruber testimony debacle. Nothing more than that. If they have to put American citizens in danger and damage American agencies and foreign allies, no biggie. What’s important is that the marks (voters) don’t clue in on the game.
I expected the major media to pick right up on this and drum it non-stop to the LIVs. I’m disappointed that the conservative talkers have been drawn onto their turf, and are playing their game.
Al Qaeda and ISIS can sleep well tonight knowing that Feinswine, her ‘RATS and the UN have their backs.
The devil knows his time is short.
last lick until obama and his thugs are investigated by the new senate
