Is There No Limit to the Depraved Depths Smokers Will Sink? Torturing Terrorists Now?
Now, they have infiltrated our CIA and are abusing terrorists with their evil second hand smoke. Man, I thought icky caterpillars were bad, but SMOKERS? They are the devil incarnate and obviously care not one whit For The Children ™.
Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, according to the 9-11 commission report, was the mastermind of the Oct. 12, 2000, attack on the U.S.S. Cole that killed 17 U.S. sailors.
Nashiri was also the target of an “unauthorized” CIA interrogation technique (that had not been legally vetted by the Justice Department) that is described in a May 7, 2004, CIA inspector general’s report that was partially declassified by the Obama administration this week.
CIA officers blew smoke in Nashiri’s face, according to the report, and they used cigars.
The IG’s office described this smoke-blowing as one of several “unauthorized or undocumented techniques” it discovered had been used in isolated incidents by CIA employees interrogating high-level al-Qaida terrorists.
“An Agency (redacted phrase) interrogator admitted that, in December 2002, he and another (redacted phrase) smoked cigars and blew cigar smoke in al-Nashiri’s face during the interrogation,” said the IG report.
Oh, the horror! The guy masterminded a terrorist plot that killed 17 Sailors, but the CIA officers BLEW SMOKE in his face! He may not have that same genetic quality that we all have; you know the one. The one that has magically protected all we kids that grew up in the 60s and 70s surrounded by smoke constantly. We must all have that magic gene, as, since second hand smoke is instantaneously deadly, evidently, all of us would be wheezing our last breaths and coughing up lungs if not for it.
Maybe it is above my “pay grade”, but I don’t think the Sailors killed in the USS Cole attack, their families, the people burnt to death in fireballs on September 11th or their families would mind very much at all if a terrorist had even the uber-evil and icky second hand smoke blown in his face. This isn’t some Lefty utopian ideal that fits a narrative, but actual reality. President Obama and his fans should try living in it once in a while.
Do they honestly believe that the terrorists are going to stop using nail bombs.. on children… causing the most horrendous of painful deaths, that they will stop strapping bombs to their own children or will stop decapitating journalists or will stop seeking to, you know, attack us (which attacks some of the enhanced interrogations stopped, by the way) just because we question them nicely and send them off with some milk and cookies and a huggle?
The only way one can even pretend that blowing smoke in a terrorist’s face is “harsh” and “unauthorized” and “abusive” is if they are intellectually dishonest and are simply trying to further a hate-campaign against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. By the way, I hate to be the one to break this to y’all, but They are NO LONGER IN CHARGE. Your guy is now; yeah, good luck with that. … Heck of a job, Barry!
I suppose I should stop worrying about my child being protected from terrorists and worry more that she is shielded from icky caterpillars or from dastardly, abusive second hand smoke. Blown in her face a few times. ONE day.
Further, how can they justify the release of interrogation techniques information? Now they know exactly what our men and women can and can’t do. I’m no military expert, but even I know that this AIDS the terrorists. This makes it easier for them to attack us again. And, in case the Left doesn’t realize this in their puppy and rainbows and unicorns hazes; by attack, I mean try to KILL us.
That anyone would seek to punish the men and women who have been protecting us and saving us from further acts of destruction is unfathomable to me. Also unfathomable to me is that the Left has shown that they wish to appease those that want to destroy us, yet call people who believe in the Constitution “radical extremists” and “angry mobs” and “UnAmerican” and “Racist”, among other slurs.
But, then, so is the fact that the majority of Americans elected a man with no experience in governing or even running anything and now are shocked that he doesn’t actually know how to do a single thing but campaign, apparently.
I guess I’m strange like that. Must be all that second-hand smoke I inhaled.
