CIA not guilty

Remember all those careless accusations of torture at the hands of the CIA? A special prosecutor was appointed to check out these legends and stories and Eric Holder expanded the mandate include cases in Afghanistan & Iraq. You know what they found after almost four years? Nothing. Attorney General Holder admitted that they “fully examined a broad universe of allegations from multiple sources.” They even found that some of the 101 detainees involved in the accusations had never been in CIA custody at all. Would you believe it? Terrorists lie.

This is yet another example of accusations throw around that do not hold up. On the pages of this blog, we had all kinds of people saying that crimes were committed on a routine basis by the people trying to protect us from terrorism. Holder himself made sure the investigations were vigorous.

I am really sick of this subject, but I feel the duty to write and set the record straight. Much energy was expended and much ink spilt making accusations, most of them w/o basis many of them malicious. Now there is mostly silence. Like Bigfoot, ghosts or alien abductions, those who believe will continue to believe for their own peculiar reasons. Reason and evidence has no effect on those sorts of minds, but we can point out that the best available evidence does not support their accusations.

People outside of the intel community have from time to time shown a great propensity to exhibit ignorance that borders on stupidy.

People sometimes have this weird pattern to just talk to be talking. They say nothing of value or of factual matter. This occurs throughout society with a shear volume of sound from people who are elected to high office.

The bottome line for me is keep your mouth shut if you can’t come up with some facts to back up such serious charges as those that were mentioned above.

There will be the shrill voices on WB that will attempt to exhbit their foolishness to the post above. I will laugh but only mildly while crying about how sad the moment is.

Is there a source somewhere in here, so we can discuss the facts of your claim?

Not sure what facts you are missing, but I have a few…

http://rogerhollander.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/us-rights-groups-denounce-dropping-of-cia-torture-cases/

Roger’s note: when Obama made that ridiculous and inane statement, I posted here an article entitled “Looking forward not backward code for no justice.” Next time you commit a crime and are put on trial, just tell the judge that it is time to look forward and not backward. Refer to the brilliant opinion of that constitutional law scholar who is the current president of the United States. The charges against you are sure to be dropped.

http://articles.cnn.com/2012-08-30/justice/justice_no-cia-prosecutions_1_cia-interrogation-abuses-prisoner-deaths-prisoners-in-cia-custody

I wouldn’t expect anyone on the left to know anything this sort of thing, it’s direct to the matter of Obama being worse on civil rights than even Bush was. Not something most progressives will discuss, especially when their Republican-esque ‘we love war too’ convention was heating up…

Two more I forgot to add:

US Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Thursday that no charges will be filed in the cases of two terror suspects who died in CIA custody – one in Iraq in 2003 and another in Afghanistan in 2002. “The admissible evidence would not be sufficient to obtain and sustain a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt,” Holder said.

What, then, are the characteristics that make an MSA likely to spawn successful neologisms?
