Fox News reaction to the Torture Report; courtesy of Crooks and Liars:
McFarland, who said that torture techniques were both legal and justified by the horrific terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, argued that Democrats were only releasing the report for political reasons…
Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters told the hosts of Out Numbered that the American people did not need to know about torture at the CIA because “people do nasty things in the dark especially after a terrorist attack.”
…Out Numbered host Andrea Tantaros agreed that she didn’t need transparency at the CIA either.
“The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome,” she said. “But we’ve had this discussion. We’ve closed the book on it, and we’ve stopped doing it. And the reason they want to have this discussion is not to show how awesome we are. This administration wants to have this discussion to show us how we’re not awesome.”
Oh my, it seems like it was only very recently that these hypocrites were calling for more transparency regarding the IRS, Benghazi and Fast and Furious. Isn’t it amazing that when the light is shone on their nefarious doings it is a case of move on, there is nothing to see here, it all happened a long time ago and we should forget it.
What a bunch of low life scum. And Andrea, in case you haven’t been watching the world news lately, the reports about the USA and the murder of its black citizens by the police in your country have done nothing to help the image of this awesomeness about which you speak.
The report says at least five detainees were subjected to “rectal feeding” or “rectal hydration” a procedure that the chief of interrogations would later characterise as illustrative of the interrogator’s “total control over the detainee”.
The report states during one incident, detainee Majid Khan had his lunch tray consisting of hummus, pasta with sauce, nuts, and raisins purified before it was rectally infused.
I think the rest of the world would like to know exactly what the CIA and the GOP were up to. We are not going to forget about it, you demented right wing loon.
