I’m Not So Sure About This….?
US Prepares for Security Risks from Torture Report
From the article:
American embassies, military units and other U.S. interests are preparing for possible security threats related to the release of a report on the CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques at secret overseas facilities after the 9/11 terror attacks.
President Barack Obama has said, “We tortured some folks.”
Earnest said that regardless of whether the U.S. gleaned important intelligence through the interrogations, “the president believes that the use of those tactics was unwarranted, that they were inconsistent with our values and did not make us safer.”
And releasing the information is going to make us safer? To be honest, it seems like an utterly foolish idea.
