    C.I.A. Abuse Cases Detailed in Report on Detainees

    The AG is just doing his job, of course, despite objections by both parties, including the president:


    Getting the information was not easy, nor do we have all of the facts even now:

    If nothing illegal was sanctioned, then why the secrecy? :confused:

    Perhaps the CIA should have come out in support of Obama during the election...

    That seems to get others off the hook when they violate the law and/or seek to avoid investigations into wrongdoing.

    BIG BREAKING NEWS, BIG BREAKING NEWS, BIG BREAKING NEWS

    ABC is breaking this...

    It has now come out from under some of the redacted parts of SECRET CIA documents that during the Bush administration a small number of detainees previously not mentioned were actually killed during detainment and TORTURE techniques... and some were not quite killed but very seriously injured.

    Also some detainees the CIA now says... they don't know where they are???:rolleyes:

    This is like a cheap sweater with a loose thread. Watch... the more we pull on it the more it unravels.

    This is just a distraction... Obama needed to throw his left wing loons a bone to sharpen their teeth on since Obamacare is doing so poorly on the national scene and he doesn't want these crazies turning against him.

    I hope they do go after the CIA and hold very public hearings, it will be the end of the Democrat majority in the next election. Even the creature from the black lagoon (James Carville) thinks going after the CIA is "terrible politics for the Obama administration and the Democrats" and Eric "The Red" Holder has stated that the probes will yield nothing of substance, "I have made it clear in the past that the Department of Justice will not prosecute anyone who acted in good faith and within the scope of the legal guidance given by the Office of Legal Counsel regarding the interrogation of detainees."

    Its just window dressing for the lunatic fringe.

    if only you where smart enough to know he did not want this, and the left wants alot more then this. we want want them to go after Dick and those who are realy behind this , not just those on the low end of the food chain. But you go ahead and act like its all a plan by Obama...when he has no power over it and wanted none of this.

    Yes, that would have been a good way to assure a McCain victory. Can you imagine the reaction of Obama's most partisan supporters?

    Right... like he didn't really want to take over banks, insurance companies, and the auto industries... :rolleyes:

    Obama didn't want his buddies at ACORN or his uniformed hoodlums in the Black Panthers to be investigated and magically the investigations went away. But according to you Obama had no power, and played no role, in that either. :rolleyes:

    Keep pretending that Obama doesn't really want an investigation into the CIA and that he had nothing to do with the investigations of ACORN and the Black Panthers being dropped. Nevermind the man behind the curtain, just keep chanting "Hope and Change" with blind enthusiasm.

    You can't refute the fact that Obama DID drop the investigations into his buddies and refuses to do the same for the CIA.

    So you lash out at me... Very Progressive of you.

    Note: Obama is the president of the US. He is not an absolute ruler. He doesn't always get his way, so him being in favor/not in favor of an issue doesn't necessarily settle that issue.


    Just in case anyone was wondering.
