Senate Panel Votes To Ask Obama To Declassify Bush-Era "Torture Report"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The bitter battle between a spied-upon Senate panel and the sanctioned spiers (CIA) over interrogation techniques and deleted files just escalated...

  • *SENATE PANEL VOTES 11-3 FOR DECLASSIFYING INTERROGATION REPORT
  • *FEINSTEIN SAYS CIA REPORT CHRONICLES 'STAIN' ON HISTORY
  • *FEINSTEIN SAYS CIA MADE 'SERIOUS MISTAKES' THAT HAUNT U.S.
  • *SENATE INTELLIGENCE VOTE ASKS OBAMA TO ISSUE REDACTED REPORT

Of course, some might see this as a distraction pre-elections (a baffle 'em with Bush-shit moment) but that would be a conspiracy 'theory'...

As AP reports,

The Senate intelligence committee has voted to release parts of a classified report that harshly criticizes CIA terror interrogations after 9/11.

 

The vote to declassify the 6,300-page review's summary was 11-3. The "torture report" argues CIA methods were often cruel and ineffective. The agency disputes the findings.

 

The two sides are embroiled in a bitter dispute.

 

Senators accuse the agency of spying on their investigation and deleting files. The CIA says Senate staffers illegally accessed information. The Justice Department is reviewing competing criminal referrals.

 

President Barack Obama supports releasing the report.

 

Spokesman Jay Carney says the president will instruct intelligence agencies to conduct declassification work quickly.

Remember - Spying And Torture are best friends...

And the consequences will be none. Precedent / Policy has already been set that supports Criminal lying to the American People while arming, funding & training Al CIA duh terror organizations.

Criminals Bush, Cheaney, Rice lied the American into war & got away with it. Criminals, Obama, Hillaery & Rice are just continuing the exact Criminal "Policy" which "National Security" protects. A big LIE.

Lied into two wars ($6 trillion). Why'd America invade Afghanistan again? Oh yeah, to get one guy (who wasn't there). How many of the 19 hijackers were from Afghanistan?

If nothing else, least Obama didn't take the recent neo-con bait and go full on war with Russia.

What in the name of all the gods has gotten into the US? Where is the vaunted Liberty and Freedom for which the Founders risked their lives at the end of a rope to give you? Where is the Rule Of Law that the Constitution was crafted to bring? The results of the breakdown of the rule of law and the arbitrary imposition of state dictatorship are too awful to contemplate, and revolution is perhaps the most terrible possibility to countenance, but isn't this kind of tyranny the very reason the Declaration of Independence says:

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security"?

The American People should be Impeaching, Arrestimg, Triing, Convicting & Executing these Criminals en masse and in great numbers where by instituting new form of government at their first opportunity, before the burden of tyranny becomes so great that the mass of The People start to think that the unthinkable is the only way to regain their freedom and liberty.

It's not complicated, it's the money. Get a bunch of the money out of politics and things would drastically improve. 

Yesterday sumpere court voted once again to make money = speech, gee wiz wonder who that benefits? A ruling that, unsurprisingly, was covered hardly at all in the us press.

Bush captured the terrorists and threw them in Gitmo and tortured them for info.  Obama just drones the terrorists and their fellow villagers to death on their own soil which would seem to take the fun out of harming terrorists unless of course you get a live feed of the kill, see raid on bin laden.

It's the War Crime "Policy" which has transcended Criminal Administrations going back since its early reports back in 2002. A policy of Torture which many House / Senate Intelligence Comm. members where briefed on.

A Policy which is "Globally" Black Site accepted.

A report from the Open Society Foundations has released a report that more than 50 nations, including the US, extra-judicially transferred suspected terrorists overseas for secret integration and torture. “Composed of information provided by various human rights organizations, the 214-page OSF report currently stands as the most comprehensive record of 136 individuals exposed to various methods of torture, including water-boarding, prolonged sleep deprivation, cramped confinement and more, in countries like Syria, Egypt, Libya, Canada and the United Kingdom,” reports Nicolas Rochon for the International. The report accuses the countries of human-rights violations, sending prisoners to known for their inhuman treatment, and another investigation described the United States as “the chief architect” of the web. The report insists that techniques of torture are ineffective and even dangerous. – YaleGlobal

No.

 

I think we need a government Fact-finding mission.

We need to send Feinstein, Pelosi, Bohner, McCain, etc each to a separate scandal-area (Ukraine, Syria, Libya, to the Drug Cartels, etc) on fact-finding missions. 

Make sure and send them with a healthy entourage of the usual K-street lobbyists, to provide their respective lobby's points of view (union, corporate, regional, racial, etc).

Announce the commitment of the US Government to facts and truth is such that they will be en locale until the truth is found.

Make sure to announce their precise arrival time and place to those they should question, like Al Qaeda, Al Assad, The Muslim Brotherhood, Putin.

Then barrage jam gps and aviation navigation nodes so they can't leave, and enjoy the show.
