The CIA launched a campaign to convince Congress and the public that its torture program had been key to locating bin Laden. CIA deputy director, Michael J. Morell briefed the Senate Intelligence Committee, and two days later CIA director Leon Panetta himself led a second such briefing. In both briefings, the CIA asserted that using torture of CIA detainees played a substantial role" in developing the intelligence that led to bin Laden, according to the committee report. But the report shows that, contrary to the CIA's claim, torture did not produce any information on bin Laden's courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, The CIA sought to prevent the Senate Intelligence Committee from learning that the most reliable intelligence on Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti actually came from an al-Qaeda detainee named Hassan Ghul.

“By calling it a ‘torture report,’ the senator turns our enemy into the victim.” – Judge Jeanine Pirro Judge Pirro slammed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) over the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee's "torture report," which was critical of the CIA's enhanced interrogation methods on terrorist detainees post-9/11.
Cheney has long backed torture, blithely supporting techniques that were called war crimes when used by Imperial Japan or Nazi Germany, and outlawed in treaties signed by most civilized nations. His central claim — not supported by a phone-book-thick body of evidence — is that torturing terrorists produced “phenomenal results,” including “the intelligence that allowed us to get Osama bin Laden.” Without having read the Senate Intelligence Committee report, he was quick to say on Monday that the barbarism committed in our name was “absolutely, totally justified.” And of course, he would do it all again, without hesitation. By Wednesday, he was the petulant child caught and cornered. Confronted with evidence that 26 detainees were wrongfully held, with examples of “rectal feeding” (rape by another definition), or induced hypothermia that most likely killed one suspect, he proclaimed the exhaustive inquiry “full of crap.” He still had not read the report. It’s impolite to call someb ...
Dark Again After Report on C.I.A. Torture We have not always agreed with Senator Dianne Feinstein on national security issues like wiretapping, but the California Democrat who heads the Senate Intelligence Committee has displayed commitment and courage in the investigation of the illegal detention, abuse and torture of prisoners by the Central Intelligence Agency. Realizing she had one last chance to get this report to the public before Republicans take over the Senate, Ms. Feinstein released a summary of the findings despite heavy pressure from Republicans and the White House to withhold it. She and her aides deserve enormous credit for their five-and-a-half-year struggle. Sadly, that is pretty much it on the disclosure front. In post-9/11 America, when it comes to momentous matters of national security, democratic tradition and the rule of law, there is precious little disclosure and no justice and accountability. It’s a bipartisan affliction. Employees of the C.I.A. and the military, as well as priva ...

These are heady days for Americans who revel in running down their country. If you buy what they're selling, the USA is a place where white cops hunt down and kill young black men at the slightest provocation, where pretty much every college male is a rapist-in-waiting. And overseas? We torture our enemies with a level of sadism that would make Torquemada blush. Given all that perfidy, and without even mentioning corporate wickedness and income inequality, it's strange that we have a problem with illegal immigration. If the America-haters are even close to being right, we should be building walls to keep people from fleeing this wretched place. As usual, the self-loathing is driven by the far left, many of whose denizens get their daily sustenance from bashing America. Which brings us to the "torture report," released this week by the Senate Intelligence Committee. It is an early Christmas gift (or should we say "holiday present?") to the left wing. Exhibit A is reliable lefty Joan Walsh, whose latest pie ...

Tuesday's imminent release of the Senate's investigation into the CIA's harsh George W. Bush-era interrogation practices is further challenging President Obama's civil-liberties legacy. As a candidate in 2008, Obama was seen as the liberal alternative to Hillary Clinton and a guardian against the counter terrorism policies of the Bush administration. In office, however, he has repeatedly disappointed his liberal base as revelations about drone killings and mass surveillance have overshadowed his campaign-trail rhetoric. Now Obama is torn between a full-throttle embrace of the Senate Intelligence Committee's findings and an all-out repudiation of the report's release, a delicate balancing act that is further agitating many of his once-ardent supporters. While former President Bush, *** Cheney, and ex-CIA officials prepare to discredit the report, Obama's administration is saying publicly that it supports the decision of the Senate Intelligence Committee and Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein to release it. Still ...
