The lawyers and politicans who allowed this to go on are just as guilty as the “specialists” who carried it out. But it started long before 9/11; the “war on terror” only provided a pretext for its coming out as a means of domestic terror against the US population. Let’s face it, this country creates monsters on a wholesale basis, starting with the torture and brain damaging of infants, through mother and breast milk deprivation, TV babysitting, broken families, government-imported street drugs, oppressive and mind-numbing public “education”, a mass marketed culture of rage and alienation, and an economy devastated by decades of corporate looting. To all appearances, this is a comprehensive program of national destabilization. It’s a prelude to the imposition of the shock doctrine, where the really big monsters who pay for it all finally see the payoff on their investment: the controlled demolition and subjugation of the united states. They’ve made handsome profits using the same business model in the “3rd world”. It was only a matter of time before they set their sights on the big prize.
The people who “hate our freedom” are the torturers and terrorists who wrap themselves in the flag and parade their treason and sickness in public.
The so-called “debate” about whether torture helped to keep us safe is reemerging, as the former chief of CIA clandestine operations Jose Rodriguez is aboutev to publish a book claiming that the use of “enhanced interrogation” practices including water-boarding saved lives.
“We made some al-Qaeda terrorists with American blood on their hands uncomfortable for a few days,” Rodriguez said in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that will air on Sunday, April 29. “I am very secure in what we did and am very confident that what we did saved American lives.”
Torture is also back in the news because Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats are producing a report stating that torture isn’t effective in producing information.
We will quote the top American military and intelligence interrogation experts to debunk the following 10 common myths about torture:
1. Torture is a partisan issue
2. Waterboarding isn’t torture
3. Torture increases our national security
4. Torture is necessary to break hardened terrorists
5. Torture is necessary in a “ticking time bomb” situation
6. The “enhanced” interrogation techniques were aimed at producing actionable intelligence
7. Torture helped to get Bin Laden
8. Torture provided valuable details regarding 9/11
9. Only bad guys were tortured
10. America doesn’t torture any more …
