Capstone of Bush Era: Got Away With Torture & Obama Helped

Luckiest People in the World Who Escaped Justice
(Rice, Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, Gonzales
Addington,  Haynes, Yoo, Bybee, Tenet)
(And anyone else tied to this issue in anyway)

This blog has been dedicated to the issue of torture, or as novices love to call it “enhanced interrogation,” which BTW does not exist.

Let’s be clear: The sole purpose of torture is to inflict pain and not realistically gain actionable and valuable intelligence for ground commanders.

That is a fact that all experienced and professional interrogators know. Those who think otherwise are either (1) stupid and naïve, (2) dumb and blind, or (3) sadistic, or possibly all three.

This article summarizes where we are today regarding this ugly stain on our country. Is has gone away, legally-speaking for those involved, but the nasty stench will linger forever.

The lead sentence in the article says it all: “Among the many things to be said about the CIA’s Bush-era interrogation program, one of the most important is that they got away with it.”

Our government allowed it, sanctioned it, by looking the other way. We should all be ashamed.
