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?

The sheik we were holding after the 1993 bombing of the towers knew there would be suicide bombers in civilian planes hitting us on 9-11.

Americans overwhelmingly view Islamic State terrorists as a serious threat to vital U.S. interests and, in a significant shift, widely support airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.The nation’s increasingly hawkish mood will form part of the backdrop for a speech by President Obama on Wednesday, when he will outline his thinking on how to confront the threat from the Islamic State. Obama’s remarks will come a day after he confers with congressional leaders at the White House about the administration’s planning.Obama’s speech also comes at a critical moment in his presidency.

We know Derek Jeter by heart, so why all this memorizing? The between-pitches bat tucked up in his armpit. The fingertip helmet-twiddle. The left front foot wide open, out of the box until the last moment, and the cop-at-a-crossing right hand ritually lifted astern until the foot swings shut. That look of expectation, a little night-light gleam, under the helmet. The pitch—this one a slow breaking ball, a fraction low and outside—taken but inspected with a bending bow in its passage.

The United Nations Security Council met Thursday to discuss the Ukraine crisis for the 24th time this year, after reports indicated that Russian soldiers and weapons had crossed the border into eastern Ukraine to support insurgents there. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said that Russia is not pulling back in Ukraine as it has repeatedly promised to do. "Russia has come before UNSC to say everything except truth. It has manipulated. It has obfuscated. It has outright lied," Power said. "We have learned to measure Russia by its actions, not its words. In last 48 hours, Russia´s actions have

The British security services MI5 and MI6 have reportedly identified a British hip-hop artist as the key suspect in the hunt for the killer who beheaded American journalist James Foley. The Sunday Times newspaper said Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, from Maida Vale in West London, had become a crucial part of the investigation. The paper attributed the information to “senior government sources.” Bary, 23, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges in New York tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

"The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist.

Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
