TORTURE, SPYING AND LYING … OH MY!
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) took it on the chin in Washington, D.C. this week, with the U.S. State Department slamming the agency for torturing detainees in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks and U.S. Senators learning definitively that the agency spied on them.
In both cases the CIA lied about its actions.
“This report tells a story of which no American is proud,” a four-page report released by the Obama administration states, referencing the findings of a previous U.S. Senate report on the CIA’s torture methods.
Not only were the agency’s “enhanced interrogation” tactics far more brutal than anyone previously imagined, but they failed to produce any life-saving intelligence.
In other news, the CIA released an internal report concluding that its agents acted “inappropriately” in penetrating a network of Senate Intelligence Committee computers at a time when the committee was reviewing the agency’s detention and interrogation techniques.
Remember that? “Republican” U.S. Lindsey Graham flipped out when he learned the government was spying on him … but he apparently still has no problem when the National Security Agency spies on the rest of us.
Anyway, when it was busted back in March CIA director John Brennan said “people who are claiming that there has been this tremendous sort of spying and monitoring and hacking will be proved wrong.”
Really? Apparently this guy’s ability to tell the truth is the same as the head of the NSA.
Of course everything is good because Brennan apologized and has set up a committee to “review the matter.” And president Barack Obama’s administration has praised him for taking “responsible steps” to fix the problem.

Thank God!!!!! We have nothing to be worried about, now. It will all be taken care of.
“The IDF is investigating.”
“We find no evidence of culpability”
You can’t blame the CIA for spying on Democrats in congress. They are working with Obama to destroy this country.
Don’t think for a moment that the Obama regime and the socialist dems in Congress are NOT spooking SCOTUS , the CIA and DOD.
I give the CIA a pass on this one. In my opinion they are just trying to protect ‘middle America’ from the enemy-dems in Congress.
Sandi, I agree, but as with all the other spying the subject citizens to in the name of “protecting us from terrorism”, where are the benefits or results of the spying? Seriously, where are the charges of Treason and other repercussions these bastards should be being hit with? They just want to know every time we fart and what we ate that caused it, or so it seems.
Illegal immigrant flooding, Gay forcing of liberal politics and now bashing Americans for not playing pretty w/ murderous terrorists.
Looks like Obama needs to move some poll numbers of liberal voters. And he runs immediately to FITS to help spread the word, in hopes he can save the Senate. Nice try. Good luck w/ that….NOT!!!!! :)
The representatives of the CIA are no different than the vast majority of other government workers, when their lips are moving, 95% of the time they are lying.
Does your local postal worker lie to you when they deliver your mail? Do the air traffic controllers lie to the airline pilots? They are part of the “vast majority”.
“Does your local postal worker lie to you when they deliver your mail? ”
They do not necessarily lie but I wish they’d stop putting my neighbor’s mail in my box . . .
“Does your local postal worker lie to you when they deliver your mail?”
No, their lips aren’t moving when they deliver it.
“Do the air traffic controllers lie to the airline pilots.”
The pilots can’t see their lips moving.
“They are part of the “vast majority”.
Of course not, if you totaled up post office workers and air traffic controllers they wouldn’t even comprise 1% of the Federal workforce.
I mistakenly assumed you possessed the intelligence to see that by using two examples your broad brush statement was ridiculous. I could list dozens of other examples but the point is lost on you. I presume all the enlisted military lie all the time also.
I mistakenly assumed you possessed a sense of humor, so I suppose we are even.

CIA has apparently found out that Vincent Sheheen is going to borrow the purple prom dress Elizabeth Colbert Busch wore in her only debate with Sanford and wear it to debate gay marriage lover, Tom Ervin.
Is the governor allowed to marry couples in her official duties?
Under certain circumstances and with acceptable oversight, I couldn’t care less about them torturing people for the good of the American People. It’s all the other crap like colluding with the EU to throw a popularly elected President out of Ukraine or arming Al Qaeda to overthrow governments to become Caliphate States that I have a bitch about.

Dreamers.. Delusional idealists.. unicornists… hippies.
The author of those words as well as the assemblage literally meant men and they were probably thinking whites only as the later governing document used fractions for non whites.
Torture isn’t that bad – I’ve been tortured all my life, and I’m still ok.
You sure? ;-)
It made basic and survival training super easy.
I thought about trying out for the seals, but it sounded too much like a circus… and besides, they were all pansies.
So you *are* OK!
Didn’t I *say* I was OK?
People say things all of the time- doesn’t make it so! ;-)
I’m not *people*!
True enough! My bad…
Graham flipping out …. Listen, Graham is a two faced lying sack of shit that role plays, ok? He has a sickness between his ears and dishonors South Carolina.
Cuddling illegal aliens like Graham does is totally unacceptable behavior. He is against our immigration laws. He violates his oath of office. He attended a LaRaza function and called citizens of South Carolina “Bigots.” The man (or whatever he is under his clothes) is a sick and deranged spawn of satan. And the majority of conservatives across the nation hate him.
I am surprised nobody has punched him in the face yet. He surely deserves it.
