Hon, you need a reality check if you think the CIA is credible.
Like the time they reported ousted Haitian President Aristide was mentally unbalanced. It was their way of supporting the military coup which overthrew him.
Clinton eventually found out the report was hogwash and Aristide was placed back in power.
The CIA lied us into Vietnam. They overthrew the democratic regime of Iran in 1953 and installed a dictatorship. That blew up in our faces 26 years later when the Shah was overthrown. Now they are understandably hostile.
Go read a book. Or better yet, go run outside screaming your head off as your post indicates you want to. I'm sure it won't be the first time.
Not so fast socialist old fk. Here you are saying the "CIA" lied, yet when Bush relied on intelligence info for Iraq you anti-American pansies say "Bush" lied.

You are a duplicitous anti-American old moron.

Democrats got us involved with sending so many troops where 50,000+ kids died, yet a sleazball like you just spins your leftwing propaganda. Eat sheet azzwhole.

Well, it's clear once again to see why we're living in a parallel universe.

Some of you should keep singing these lyrics...

I'm talking about freedom
I'm talking about freedom
We will fight for the right
To live in Freedom.

...because some of you have obviously forgotten.

Jurisdiction is presumed WHERE an act occured, there is quite a difference between a tribunal and a court.

WASHINGTON — A
nonpartisan,
independent review
of interrogation and
detention programs
in the years after the
Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks
concludes that “it is
indisputable that the
United States
engaged in the
practice of torture”
and that the
nation’s highest
officials bore
ultimate
responsibility for it.
The sweeping, 577-
page report says
that while brutality
has occurred in
every American war,
there never before
had been “the kind
of considered and
detailed discussions
that occurred after
9/11 directly
involving a
president and his
top advisers on the
wisdom, propriety
and legality of
inflicting pain and
torment on some
detainees in our
custody.” The study,
by an 11-member
panel convened by
the Constitution
Project, a legal
research and
advocacy group, is
to be released on
Tuesday morning.
Debate over the
coercive
interrogation
methods used by
the administration
of President George
W. Bush has often
broken down on
largely partisan
lines. The
Constitution
Project’s task force
on detainee
treatment, led by
two former
members of
Congress with
experience in the
executive branch —
a Republican, Asa
Hutchinson, and a
Democrat, James R.
Jones — seeks to
produce a stronger
national consensus
on the torture
question.
While the task force
did not have access
to classified records,
it is the most
ambitious
independent attempt
to date to assess the
detention and
interrogation
programs. A
separate 6,000-
page report on the
Central Intelligence
Agency’s record by
the Senate
Intelligence
Committee, based
exclusively on
agency records,
rather than
interviews, remains
classified.
Those who Don't go around frickin terrorising other countries and the people thereof, won't have to worry it.

Those who DO, and see nothing WRONG with it-need to START thinking elsewise!!!

Good Job BOSTON!

GOD BLESS AMERICA and the democracy thereof!

There is the problem also of indefinite detention, sound like freedom to you?

Was a great movie. I recommend it.

Another chapter in the war on terror is closed but the book is long. There will be more. In fact I would hazard a guess that it will accelerate. Nowhere can now be deemed safe. See it, report it.

Wake up Duhmazz-bin_laden was only half the leadership.
Zawahari, a living, walking shell of depravity, suffered at the hands of more depravity, was HIS mentor.
Do you always suck down the grape ape juice of cluelessness so ignorantly?
Bin Laden was number one.

Bin Laden is why we invaded Afghanistan.

You & your ilk have a fit because those behind Benghazi have yet to be caught while Bin Laden & Zawahari ran free for7 years under Bush.

Hypocrites. You're all a pack of whining hypocrites.

I was asking your opinion on the drone strikes without congressional authority of innocent women and children, especially without a declaration of war, do you care about checks and balances?
A declaration of war?
Bush was given permission by Congress to go into Iraq with 111 Democrats on board.

Congress has the power to decide things like that.

Obama has continued to fight the war accelerating the drone program more than Bush ever did.

Shouldn't Obama have gotten permission from Congress first?

The Rolling Stones and The Who were also at the 9/11 fundraiser concert where David Bowie sang his heartfelt rendition of "America".
So sissy music to you is musicians honoring the dead and the heroes of 9/11?
Like I said...you're just too far beyond help.
But you didn't say the Rolling Stones and Who in the post I responded to.

Go listen to your sissy music, airhead.
