Seriously. His latest push-back about the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on the CIA torture program, which reveals both its excesses and its impotence, General (how the hell did he ever make it to General?) Hayden suggests that Feinstein is "too emotional" to put out a good report, which sounds a lot to me like some seriously sexist dog-whistling:
Former CIA and National Security Agency director Michael Hayden suggested Sunday that Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) might have compromised the objectivity of a report on CIA interrogation techniques because she personally wants to change them.I guess Hayden thinks that a visceral opposition to torture, particularly when it is shown not to work is somehow an artifact of being a weak and hysterical woman.
On "Fox News Sunday," Hayden cited comments Feinstein made last month in which she said declassifying the report would "ensure that an un-American, brutal program of detention and interrogation will never again be considered or permitted."
Hayden suggested Feinstein feels too strongly about the issue on an "emotional" level.
"That sentence -- that motivation for the report -- may show deep, emotional feeling on the part of the senator, but I don't think it leads you to an objective report," Hayden said.
Guess what, Dianne Feinstein is not being "soft", or "emotional" over turture, you are.
You are so unsure of your own masculinity, that you had people tortured for no reason at all?
So, General Hayden, just how small is your penis?
