Assigned Reading: Intel Director: High-Value Info Obtained
(FROM: Associated Press)
I hate to keep beating a dead horse–beating a dead horse, by the way, is a figure of speech and is not included in the CIA repertoire–but, as we learn more and more about which interrogation memos were released and which were not, we need to focus not only on what it was that was concealed, but exactly why the Obama administration consciously did not want the American people to know the truth.
The very first sentence of this AP article, noting that Obama’s own top intel official acknowledged last week–quietly–that good information was obtained through CIA measures, is extremely telling. They knew, but decided to release information obscuring that success in hopes of drumming up populist outrage.
A plea from a tired law student — talk about these memos with your friends, with your co-workers. Make sure they know the full story, make sure your friends and co-workers not only know there is more here than what the administration and complicit media is disclosing, but that they also think about why the truth is actively being withheld.
Liberals always run into problems advancing their agenda when they encounter common sense. That’s why they need crisis to operate. That’s why Americans can’t know that making Khalid Sheikh Mohammed uncomfortable saved thousands of American lives.
