Don't Worry, President Trump, They're Lying. It's What They Do.

A future president Trump or Cruz could be defied by his own intelligence chief, after CIA director John Brennan said on Sunday he would not allow members of his agency to carry out torture techniques such as waterboarding.

“I will not agree to carry out some of these tactics and techniques I’ve heard bandied about because this institution needs to endure,” Brennan told NBC News.
They're not so much worried about the future of the CIA as they are worried about their own skins, as the last CIA director admitted.

Which is sort of deciding not to kill your annoying neighbor, not because murder is wrong, but because you might get caught.

Horseshit. Bet your ass on this: If they're ordered to maim, torture and summarily execute prisoners, they will. As much as Hayden whines about CIA officers being investigated for torturing and killing people, not one of them spent a night in jail over it. No official of the Bush Administration has been charged with sanctioning, ordering or condoning torture. Those shitheel lawyers who provided legal justification for torture are sitting on the Federal bench, teaching at law school or otherwise lucratively employed.

Big punishment, eh? They had to answer difficult questions.


There are other shitheel lawyers who are happy to opine that what the CIA did wasn't torture. So if the CIA is ordered to torture people, bet the farm that they'll happily don their rubber aprons and go to work.

You are very specifically correct.

If Superman had a cat. I just put down my 17 year old tuxedo cat (three weeks ago, but the pain is still fresh). I wish I could bury Smokey on the moon.

I saw it. And now I'm crying again.

My condolences for losing Smokey.
