Well, the Democrats proved just how petty, petulant, and completely untrustworthy they are for the non-ignorant world to see when they released the so-called “torture” report. So called by them, of course.
They proved they cannot be trusted with anything. They will sell you out in a heart beat for political advantage or just petty vindictiveness.
This was a “screw you” move designed to embarrass their devil incarnate, George W Bush, but make them look like Edward Snowden in their heads. They were “exposing” the real truth.
The real truth is, they exposed that they are totally untrustworthy. They are vindictive, petty, petulant and will stab you in the back in a micro-second for any political advantage or petulant “payback”.
The report spends little time condemning torture on moral or legal grounds. Instead, it addresses mainly a practical question: Did torture accomplish anything of value? Looking at case after case, the report answers with an unqualified no. (NYT)
SHOCK AND AWE! The Democrats found that Bush “torture” was ineffective! Never heard that narrative meme before now… 🙂
Former Sen Bob Kerry (D): “I do not need to read the report to know that the Democratic staff alone wrote it. The Republicans checked out early when they determined that their counterparts started out with the premise that the CIA was guilty and then worked to prove it.” (USA Today)
A U.N. human rights expert said a report that the U.S. Senate released on Tuesday revealed a “clear policy orchestrated at a high level within the Bush administration” and called for prosecution of U.S. officials who ordered crimes, including torture, against detainees. (Reuters)
So what do we get? Exactly what the Democrats wanted. Gee, I wonder how that happened. And the UN spouts off yet again. Surprise!
And proves the Democrats will do or say anything to get what they want, when they want it, and because they want it, and if you get in their way they will stab you in the back in a heartbeat. It’s all about them.
On Tuesday morning, the C.I.A. acknowledged problems in the early months of the program but suggested that they had been fixed. “The study as a whole leads the reader to believe that the management shortcomings that marked the initial months persisted throughout the program, which is historically inaccurate,” the agency said. (NYT)
Geez, it’s not like it was an Internet Video that caused it and they tried to cover it up!! 🙂
Gee, It’s not like Obamacare, after all, where NO Republican actually voted for it and we got it anyways. 🙂
Or Jonathan “You’re Stupid” Gruber. 🙂
“As far as I can tell, we are here today to beat up on Jonathan Gruber for stupid — I mean absolutely stupid — comments he made over the last few years,” he began, staring angrily at the hapless professor.
“Let me be clear, I am extremely frustrated with Dr. Gruber’s statements,” Elijah Cummings (D) continued. “They were irresponsible, incredibly disrespectful, and did not reflect reality. And they were, indeed, insulting.”
“I was in Congress when this law was debated, and Dr. Gruber does not speak for me, or the chairman of the other committees who worked tirelessly on this bill,” he said. “We debated this legislation for nearly a year before it was finally passed and signed by the president! Never once did I believe or did anyone suggest that we were somehow hiding our goals from the American people.“
Oh, but you were Congressman, that was the point. But at least time your goal was very, very clear….Almost TRANSPARENT! 🙂
“But worst of all,” the ranking member concluded, “Dr. Gruber’s statements gave Republicans a public relations gift in their relentless political campaign to tear down the ACA and eliminate health care for millions of Americans!”
Yes, Congressman, opposing ObamaCare means we want people to have no insurance whatsoever and “just die” just like interrogating captured terrorists didn’t lead to information that saved American lives like getting Bin Laden.
Yes, Congressman, The Democrats have been laid bare for all to see. Those that want to see and but also what the Liberal Media will allow them to see. 🙂
Now’s that “transparency” 🙂
