Do you really think this is about waterboarding?
You've taken the bait.
Do you really think they would destroy tapes that showed mere waterboarding?
They WANT you to hysterically scream "waterboarding is torture!" over and over again. That's exactly what they want!
What they're really doing is genital mutilation and rape and torturing children in front of their parents. And God-Only-Knows what other sadistic and medievel bullshit.
Quit falling for their shit! I've written two dairies in two nights about this, and still all anybody wants to hear about is the "waterboarding" lie.
I will now let YucatanMan finish this diary for me! (this was his comment in response to mine above, and he did a better job than I could have):
* [new] Seriously, accurately, precisely correct. (1+ / 0-)
Since when have we ever seen a CIA agent (like a couple years ago at the longest) appear on fucking NIGHTLINE and discuss precisely what his assignment was, what activities he undertook in that assignment, who he tortured, how well it worked, and how it is necessary but "probably" wrong.
This is a fucking disinformation campaign from top to bottom. Theyrereal has it exactly right. "Waterboarding" is a simple little game in most people's minds. It does not involve razor blades and penis tips. It does not involve violent rape of 14 yo boys by prison guards. It does not involve the abuse of children in front of their father to get him to talk.
"Waterboarding" indeed. Bull-fucking-shit.
Here's what they are doing, Karl Rove's favorite tactic: Holding up a pretty shining object, while they run out the back door with the really dirty shit.
These fucking bastards are brutal criminals of the worst kind. Waterboarding is their shiny object. Scream about it all you want, but the average American thinks, "Yeah, pour some water on his face and get him to talk. No more of this explosion business around here."
But tell the average American that you took razor blades to a man's penis and poured alcohol on it, and they'd cringe in personal pain. As long as the talk is about waterboarding, they skate home free.
Oh, and that CIA agent at the beginning of my comment? Do you think he just "decided" to "present" himself to ABC News NightLine without official clearance and approval?
IF he is a real CIA agent, he is still conducting the campaign he was assigned to do. He didn't say one word without official approval. He'd be arrested and jailed otherwise. And no one would even know he was jailed. You don't think there is some kind of freaking non-disclosure clause? Some kind of code of silence about past missions?
And, yet, check out every article written and the Nightline show itself:
>> NO ONE says anything about how and why he came forward.
>> NO ONE says whether he got permission.
>> NO ONE asks, "Isn't it a bit odd that a CIA agent discloses all this 'independently' immediately after an admission of criminal activity AT and BY the CIA has taken place????"
Yeah, he was jus a walkin down the street and said, "I'm gonna do me an interview." What crap.
We hear what they want us to hear. They try to move our attention where they want it. The crimes are likely much more severe than we even know. And what we know is horrific. These people should be on trial.

Thanks, YucatanMan. Somebody who freaking gets it.
The rest of you? I dunno, I'm worried about the way you keep falling for these tricks ...
