Note: I took some liberties filling in some of the blanks in the quote. Forgive me.
Since [Leslie] Stahl omitted another critical question [in her 60 Minutes interview with sociopath CIA Torturer and Video Tape melter, Jose Rodriguez], I will ask it here: Why now? Why a CIA authorized book justifying CIA torture? There are two possible explanations. First, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) will soon release its long-awaited report on CIA torture. The report is expected to find no convincing evidence that harsh interrogation techniques led to any breakthroughs in the fight against terrorism. We should not be surprised if the CIA might want to preempt this inconvenient finding. How many will heed a report released by Senate Democrats compared to the high-profile interview and book tour of a tough CIA veteran pushing the romance of “dark-side” fixes to America’s security problems?
4 Israeli Defense Force soldiers “detaining” a Palestinian girl, while posing for a picture with their rifles pointed at her head. Fucking outrage.
