Our President Barack Obama has told the CIA that the agency’s operatives have nothing to fear for all the torture (stress positions in the commonly used euphemism) they have inflicted on suspected Al Qaeda terrorists in the so called war on terror.
In a statement accompanying the release of the torture memos today, Obama provided solid assurances to the CIA torturers:
it is our intention to assure those who carried out their duties relying in good faith upon legal advice from the Department of Justice that they will not be subject to prosecution. The men and women of our intelligence community serve courageously on the front lines of a dangerous world. Their accomplishments are unsung and their names unknown, but because of their sacrifices, every single American is safer. We must protect their identities as vigilantly as they protect our security, and we must provide them with the confidence that they can do their jobs.
Bottomline, the CIA torturers get a free pass.
In the same statement, Obama claims:
The United States is a nation of laws. My Administration will always act in accordance with those laws, and with an unshakeable commitment to our ideals
A nation of laws? What the f*** is Obama smoking. Oh yes, we’d like some of that weed too.
By the way, we must tell you that Obama has prohibited those harsh interrogation techniques (another American euphemism for torture), at least officially.
