After the 9/11 tragedy, some CIA agents had to interrogate the terrorist attackers and are now being investigated by Obama's administration.
Even though these interrogators only made THREATS, investigators say they yielded critical information to prevent future attacks on Americans and also one of the US Embassy in Pakistan. Reports from an investigation 5 years ago, led to updated their field manual and to the arrest of only ONE CIA employee.
Why re-open this issue? These CIA agents protected our country after such a horrific event like 9/11 and we're going to further scrutinize what they did because these terrorists were THREATENED? hello, Obama!!?? Always fighting for the other side...

Funny how when the heat is on he and his minions revert to the old standard of old business. Especially when he is trying to push really hard for something HUGE with little chatter about reconciliation.
Anyhow, from reports I have read and seen, as long as they didn't use a drill on these guys (I don't give a sh*t if they put it next to his ear) and the mock executions are actually mock and not real, I have no problem with it. Sorry. JMO.

Let them. These are individuals being investigated, NOT a previous administration or the actions directed by a group. Individuals. The Bush admin prosecuted one individual in 2005, I believe. If they really think this needs to be a focus, then the Obama admin is NOT moving forward and does NOT have it's priorities straight. jmo

They are sending a dangerous message. This will paint the American people as weak. I guarantee the terrorist would investigate an interrogator for making threats. They would investigate them for ONLY making threats and following through. Can BO and his administration make us look more ridiculous?

What "critical" information did these brutal interrogations yield? NONE.
I'm not entirely sure if I would go after the agents who were just following orders. I would definitely go after the guys who handed them those orders though. However, then the Republicans would say we were just playing partisan politics and launching an inquisition.
Innocent people were tortured, some died. SOMEONE should have to answer for that.

lovinangels his poll numbers aren't dropping by the day. Support for health care, and support of the administration are to different issues. Oh and they have ALWAYS said THIS issue would be under review.

They have to get the CIA out of the way. Obama's new "Interrogation Czar" will be taking over. They will answer to the White House of course. I wonder just which "terrorists" they will be interrogating. It is very disturbing.
