Now Another Idiot Says The CIA Should Apologize

Post by centermass »

A little diddy bout Jackie and Dianne......
Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin that the CIA should “absolutely” issue an apology to terrorists after Tuesday’s release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA interrogation techniques.
Speier said she was “shocked” by the report and said “that is not what this country is about. We have got to shut this down.


Well Jackie, why don't you and Diane go on over to the land of sand, find Baghdadi (As if either of you know who he is) and go fucking apologize to him face to face? Or better yet, go gather the families and relatives of those 9/11 victims and apologize to them on behalf of the CIA as well while you're at it???

Idiots. They're everywhere we don't need them. :roll:

If we would just be nice to our enemies, don't make waves and leave them alone, then maybe they would treat us nice in return. I mean it seems to be working well for all the aid workers and reporters in Syria and Iraq right now. Not to mention the young teenage girls and Christian women that have been raped and murdered by the peace loving Isil/Isis soldiers. I for one am heading to Hallmark right now to buy my apology cards so I can put it into my Christmas Apology gifts I'm sending directly to Isil/Isis, the Taliban, and al-Qaeda headquarters. First I have to stop and buy some more fertilizer.

I'm personally not convinced that we were torturing people. Temporary discomfort isn't the same thing. Having said, that you really can't trust info from anyone that isn't freely giving it out with out coercion.
Then again, I'm sure some of the booger eaters we captured that got the treatment absolutely deserved it, even if they had no pertinent info.

Main thing the CIA should be apologizing for is dropping the ball on 9/11 et al in the first place....

Based on the 'findings' of that report, I know I suffered worse treatment during SFOC and RS - by the lib Dems definitions, SOF training would be classified as "torture".

If sleep deprivation and meal modifications are torture, then someone owes me an apology. If I just take the time I was in RIP, Pre-Ranger, Ranger School, SERE School and AF Survival School, and sue for so much per day of torture (sleep deprivation/meal modification) I should come out pretty rich. :lol: :roll:

That's where the problem is- it's only torture if you are an under priveleged terrorist with out a real nation state to sponsor to you. Otherwise, it's good training. Now grab your boots and get back in the box...
