Shaving a wet cat with a dull razor – more on torture

Oh How I Love to watch her TWIST IN THE WIND
Look, no one is debating that the CIA can lie to congress (That is its primary purpose right?) – but in a world where Freecreditreport.com is a lie (don’t believe me? You can’t get that report without having a credit card. Again, without a credit card and thus a line of control from a bank, you are S.O.L.) trying to turn your own lies around on the CIA smells of someone feeling themself sandbagged and having nothing else in their deck to throw into the game.
No great loss really. I remember when Nancy Pelosi as Speaker was accompanied by it’s own particular cult of “She Will Save Us” and I scoffed then too – and was quietly told to let the less cynical enjoy their victory.
Ahem. Fuck that.

Former senator Bob Graham is joining the chorus of I didn’t know likely in exchange for something else later down the line would be my guess.
Jebus, do you have any idea how fucked things are when someone has less credibility than the Central Intelligence Agency? WOW.
Really though, the proof is in the pudding.

Graham is the only other Dem aside from Pelosi to get briefed in 2002, so they are both in effect asserting that no Dem was briefed on the use of EITs that year. The date of the next briefing was in February 2003.

The key word here is DEMOCRAT. Name a single member of the GOP sitting in who can corroborate this? (Not, mind, that they would. After all, the core of the GOP right now is of the masturbates to tortured brown people variety. Right Rush?)

But of course, the Robot has to sound off because he hasn’t done enough this week to end and destroy any tiny vestige of credibility the GOP might still possess.

WASHINGTON, May 14 (Reuters) – The CIA on Thursday rejected a request by former Vice President Dick Cheney that it make public documents that he said showed the effectiveness of using harsh interrogation methods on terrorism suspects.

*QUACK*Torture Works*QUACK*We should show the people how tough and big we are*QUACK* The CIA has a long (over 50 years) history of doing bad things and then not getting caught. But really, maybe just once, we should listen to Dick and watch both the CIA and the socially conservative wingnutjobs of the right wing get sucked into the black hole that would result.
Save of course, that that would insure further Obamanocracy.
