What the President's Attack on the CIA Really Means

  1. There is now just one group of people exempt from President Obama's worldwide ban on torture: the men and women of the CIA.

    By authorizing Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to determine whether a full criminal investigation of CIA employees and contractors is warranted for the manner in which they interrogated captured terrorists, the President has thrown his power and support behind those far-left ideologues -- in Congress and elsewhere -- who believe that the CIA is a bigger threat to our country than al Qaeda.


  2. I wasn't able to locate the direct quote, but it was said in simular fashion that if al qadea wants to destroy America, they had better hurry up and do it, as the halfrican is beating them to it.

    Edit: here it is;
    Limbaugh: If Al Qaeda wants to demolish the America we know and love, they'd better hurry, because Obama's beating them to it
  3. there is ample evidence that nasty things were going on. what do you do? just overlook a minor thing like torture just because your side was doing it?
  4. I hope the end result is Bush and Chaney being convicted of war crimes

  5. Investigating and intimidating those who were doing their job as instructed and simply following orders will only weaken our national security further. We should not try and re-write history by threatening to punish previous administration minions based on current policy because the current administration is wanting to pander to its base and divert attention away from their own failures.

  6. How un American of you! As the saying goes, you can shit in one hand and hope in the other..............do
    let us know which one fills up first!!!

    The real question here is, who has Americas best interest at heart, no pun intended:
  7. Rumor has it that Panetta just sent Obama his letter of resignation.
  8. People on the left got all upset over Valarie Plame who was a desk jockey.

    Now they are going to out real field people. Oh, the hypocrisy.

  9. if people were violating the law should they be "outed"? or do we as americans demonstrate our hypocrisy to the rest of the world.
  10. One should not make up one's mind until the Dick has spoken:
