“I was just doing my job” isn’t a defense
CIA threatened to kill children
A veteran prosecutor has been appointed to begin a criminal probe of CIA questioning of terror suspects during the Bush administration, after details of interrogation techniques, including threats to children, were revealed. A new detainee interrogation unit is also being created to be supervised by the White House. Federal prosecutor John Durham will be appointed by Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate alleged CIA abuses, said a Justice Department official. Word of that decision came within minutes of the release of a newly declassified CIA document describing how interrogators threatened to kill the children of one September 11 suspect and may have threatened to sexually assault the mother of another detainee. The administration also announced Monday that all US interrogators will follow the rules for detainees laid out by the Army Field Manual. That decision aims to end years of fierce debate over how rough US personnel can get with terror suspects in custody. Formation of the new interrogation unit for "high-value" detainees does not mean the CIA is out of the business of questioning terror suspects, deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton told reporters covering the holidaying President Barack Obama on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.
And these are the people John Key wants us to go to war with! Can you believe that the CIA are no considered so dangerous in interrogating prisoners that they’ve had the role taken off them! What I can stand is these whiney American maggots who pitifully wail that they were just doing their jobs, we didn’t accept that at Nuremburg, we sure as hell don’t accept it now. These pricks tortured human beings and it wasn’t just a few bad apples, it was systematic and officially approved, they whole stinking shit sack needs to be prosecuted and anyone found guilty punished!
How moral does America look now? Why the hell are we backing them up and providing them with prisoners in Afghanistan when we now know they torture prisoners?
The whole thing is disgusting.
