Torture Report Details Long List Of America’s Brutal Crimes
“The CIA’s harsh interrogations of terrorist detainees during the Bush era didn’t work, were more brutal than previously revealed and delivered no “ticking time bomb” information that prevented an attack, according to an explosive Senate report released Tuesday.

“Shameful, debased, inhumane …. and condoned by the past administration and refused to be pursued by the current one. A shame then …. a deep scar on the country. A country with no moral right AT ALL to judge, condemn, persecute any other country! The proverbial “pot calling the kettle black”. A shameful day …. another day to live in infamy! Another thing/issue not to be proud about at all!”
My Facebook status post early this morning:
I was raised to believe that the USA was the greatest country in the world. I lived with American influence throughout my life. It always was my goal to live in”the mainland”.
December is the month when “a day in infamy” is remembered. Another such day will be included as it’s been confirmed that the country’s “rulers” secretly approved and conducted the lowest of the low methods of torture (with the less prepared agents – if anyone can be prepared to torture another human being),
The “program” was approved during the Bush administration and will be kept “under the rug” during the Obama administration. A huge mark on this country, leaving a big scar. There is no moral stand to judge, condemn or persecute other so called “barbaric” countries – which decapitate, rape, plunder, steal, profit, oppress, – when the USA is no different. The proverbial “pot calling the kettle black”! Pun intended …. shame, shame. How low can anyone go? A day in infamy indeed!! Feeling more than disappointed and terribly disgusted ….. it’s been a while that I knew “that there was no Santa”.

The majority report issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee is a damning condemnation of the tactics — branded by critics as torture — the George W. Bush administration deployed in the fear-laden days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The techniques, according to the report, were “deeply flawed,” poorly managed and often resulted in “fabricated” information.
The long-delayed study, distilled from more than six million CIA documents, also says the agency consistently misled Congress and the Bush White House about the harsh methods it used and the results it obtained from interrogating al Qaeda suspects.”* The Young Turks Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
