CIA misled on interrogation program, Senate report says

Here is my response to the WP’s imperial weasel wording:

“CIA Conspiracy to Lie to Congress in Torture Cover-Up”

The Central Intelligence Agency has been caught in numerous felony violations in its ongoing cover-up of war crimes throughout the 2000s. President Obama continues to protect official torturers, and the agency has stonewalled the Senate Select Oversight Committee, a normally compliant co-conspirator. Torture has degraded the image of America around the world and many nations justifiably question America’s claims to democracy, freedom and even civilization and the rule of law.

Secretive, lawless agencies that torture with impunity are a clear and present danger to the republic, and this Constitutional crisis deserves full investigation and public action.

In the cse of Zubaydah, he provided evidence that he was working for Saudi state intelligence prior to his torture (or possibly afterward / competing accounts). This Saudi complicity in his actions was soon eliminated from the story after repeated torture leading critics to question if the purpose of the torture was to produce false testimony (videotapes of this Saudi link with phone numbers of three Saudi princes divulged by Zubaydah were destroyed illegally by CIA).

Further Saudi intelligence links to the September 11th attacks remain covered up by CIA and the administrations of George W. Bush as well as Barack Obama. Senator Bob Graham’s investigation into the San Diego hijacker cell showed clear Saudi Arabian material support to the hijackers. Further support in Sarasota Florida links the Saudi regime, an undemocratic monarchy, to the named 9/11 hijackers. These facts and the FBI investigations surrounding them remain redacted and somewhat hidden from public view. Such “aid and comfort” to the perpetrators of the September 11th attacks meets the Constitutional definition of “Treason.”

BUT-WAIT

The Miami Herald:

Citing broad public interest, newspapers ask judge to deny bid to block 9/11 lawsuit
I suppose there are still brain dead ignorant Americans who have no clue that they are living in a police state.  Perhaps with racist blinders they assume that abuses will only be directed at outsiders, people unlike themselves.  That is, of course, how fascism succeeds.  The government fosters the concept of in-groups and out-groups: scapegoats.  The scapegoats allow them to remove restrictions on government power.  This is how the Nazis came to power and other fascists.  It’s an old script, which shouldn’t work except for the profound ignorance of the public.

Let’s cut the bullshit concerning the monarchy of Saudi Arabia and its long, longstanding creation and sponsorship of international terrorist organizations including “Al Qaeda” (“the database”).  This week Malaysia is the target of Islamist destabilization, as was recently seen in Libya and Syria:

Malaysia Invaded: Hundreds of Terrorists Land on Beaches, Western Media Mute

Tony Cartaluccci writes:

“A multitude of reports from across the West have identified Saudi Arabia as the lynch pin in Al Qaeda’s global terror campaign, including the US Army West Point Combating Terrorism Center.

Its reports “Al-Qa’ida’s Foreign Fighters in Iraq” and “Bombers, Bank Accounts and Bleedout: al-Qa’ida’s Road In and Out of Iraq,” identify a vast terrorist network maintained by the Saudis that recruits, arms, and funds terrorists from across the Muslim World, and can funnel a mercenary army into any desired nation. At the time, the desired nation was Iraq. In 2011, it was Libya. Today it is Syria. The same network that US soldiers fought in Iraq is verifiably in use today, in support of US regime-change operations in Syria.

And while it is acknowledged across even the Western mainstream media that Saudi Arabia is a notorious state-sponsor of terrorism, including the terrorists allegedly behind the September 11, 2001 attacks that left 3,000 Americans dead, the US has had a decades-long, deep economic and military relationship with the despotic Arabian autocracy.”

Lest you think this treasonous relationship is the purview of the Bush family alone, we must note Barack Obama’s sucking of the big Saudi cock vis a vis the victims of the September 11th attacks of 2001, in their lawsuit against the despotic terrorist-sponsoring tyranny of Saudi Arabia:

Personally, that’s enough prima facie evidence of H-I-G-H- T-R-E-A-S-O-N to warrant a complete shutdown of the nation until this matter is sorted out once and for all. But, business as usual rolls on. I have no idea what mush is inside the brains of the military/security complex that swears oaths to defend the US and the Constitution and then does the exact opposite time and time again. Why do people sign their lives away to fight for these monsters?

“Barack Obama to authorise record $60bn Saudi arms sale”

Ask the former head of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Senator Bob Graham of Florida, about the Saudi ties to the 9/11 attacks. Open the file on FBI reports of Saudi “ghost employees” paid by the Saudi aerospace sector prior to the 9/11 attacks, suspected of working for the “Saudi Arabian intelligence service” and winding up beyond the reach of low level FBI investigators after the September 11th attacks.

I mean seriously, cut the shit. We are governed by the most despicable criminals on the face of the planet, and the people believe lies, generalizations, myths about nearly everything.
