    ...a sort of meta-organism.  Those in it know they are "special".  The CIA is at the center of this contraption and it has a long history of being rogue.  It has practiced and exported torture for decades. That component of their DNA kicked in after 9/11 and it went on steroids.

    I'm all for, as serious and knowledgeable intelligence officers will say, eliminate the practice of torture immediately.  

    If Obama just made an announcement like this it would push things in the right direction.  It would start the taming of the monster.
