Britain ´attempts to censor´
US report on torture sites

Observer (UK), by Jamie Doward and Ian Cobain

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/3/2014 6:55:09 AM

The government stands accused of seeking to conceal Britain´s role in extraordinary rendition, ahead of the release of a declassified intelligence report that exposes the use of torture at US secret prisons around the world.The Senate report on the CIA´s interrogation programme, due to be released in days, will confirm that the US tortured terrorist suspects after 9/11. In advance of the release, Barack Obama admitted on Friday: "We tortured some folks. We did some things that were contrary to our values."Now, in a letter to the human rights group Reprieve, former foreign secretary William Hague has confirmed that the

Look! It´s a squirrel! Don´t pay attention to ebola brought here or the long list of scandals and problems: Ukraine, IRS, James Rosen, Fast and Furious, NSA, false employment numbers, false economic data, executive orders out the wazoo, EPA, Hamas, Libya, illegal alien invasion encouraged by our own government, and on and on.

The left considers playing loud music as torture.It would be torture to me if it was Springsteen..But I digress.All these supposed cases of torture have already been reviewed dozens if times and it was proven some info we got stopped other attacks.There were doctors and lawyers present at the interrogations.

Right now ISIS is simply executing people in the street,in broad daylight and not a word from these human rights whackos.

Waterboarding isn´t unreasonable if some people just killed over 3000 Americans with planes.

Why deny it? Just be truthful. Yes we did torture some people. When you have people who use children as suicide bombers, who´s stated goal is the elimination of all infidels,who constantly put their own people in harms way such as human shields these people have no regard for human rights. Better to make these so-called leaders squeal a little than to let them kill more people.

Torture should not be in widespread use by any civilized people but we are not dealing with human beings here, the muzzie terrorists are animals. Besides, they sing like canaries before the first hot knife even touches the skin.

I can´t wait for obama to try to lie and squirm his way out of this one.

While we´re digging up the past to distract from the present, Obama, how about producing a genuine long-form birth certificate, your college records, your student status as "foreign", your membership in the Socialist Party?
In a just world, Obama would be a "guest" at one of these "extreme rendition" sites.

Torture?

Of course there is torture!

Try listening to MSNBC/CNN/NBC/CBS/ABF/NPR, or try sitting in on a modern university lecture. Or try listening to teachers in any public education class. Or try listening to a speech by Obama, Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid. And worst of all, try watching Obama throw a baseball!

People who love this country, who love the constitution, who are called jingoistic by the leftist media and politicians, are tortured by the progressives/anti-gun/anti-free speech/anti-military/liberal/socialist/communist/left-wing/Anti-Americans who are destroying this country every single day!

WE DO NOT TORTURE

We withhold Tryptophan from meals. Missing a critical amino acid causes unhinged behavior and while ´crazy´ a skilled interrogator can ask anything and get the answers. Add the Tryptophan back in and presto, the subject is restored. No harm, no foul.

TORTURE DOES NO GOOD

So, who benefits from the ´torture´ slander?

David Cameron vows to defeat ISIS
after beheading of British aid worker
CNN, by Laura Smith-Park    Original Article
Posted By: flyright- 10/4/2014 7:20:32 AM     Post Reply
UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday that the death of British aid worker Alan Henning at the hands of ISIS was "absolutely abhorrent" and "unforgivable." Britain must work with its allies to do "everything it can" to defeat ISIS in the region and at home, he said. "What we see with this organization is there´s no level of depravity to which they will not sink. No appeals made any difference," he said. "The fact this was a kind, gentle, compassionate and caring man who had simply gone to help others, the fact they murdered him in the way they did, shows what

The huge cyberattack on JPMorgan Chase that touched more than 83 million households and businesses was one of the most serious computer intrusions into an American corporation. But it could have been much worse.Questions over who the hackers are and the approach of their attack concern government and industry officials. Also troubling is that about nine other financial institutions — a number that has not been previously reported — were also infiltrated by the same group of overseas hackers, according to people briefed on the matter. The hackers are thought to be operating from Russia and appear to have at

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Something Is Rotten in the Secret Service

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
