Watch Them Scream
The CIA director, General Michael Hayden, praised the deal reached in Congress today that, in effect, would permit CIA interrogators to use harsh techniques critics call torture.
If the CIA likes it, I like it. And when I say watch them scream, I don’t mean the enemy combatants / terrorists, I couldn’t care less about them. It’s the Liberals screaming about the deal that’s fun to watch.
It’s amazing when you think about it, that a political ideology would seem so intent on bringing on its own demise by giving a dangerous and unprincipled enemy a free pass – but that’s Liberalism, folks. No doubt they’re feeling tortured tonight by the compromise. Now all the Dems have to do is try to block it and they will solidify their image as soft on terror. And the netroots will torture them if they don’t take a strong stand.
Poor Dems, they probably thought they’d be cruising toward control of both Houses right about now. Instead they are wringing their hands wondering how to get elected without letting people know what they really believe. At least for today, political life is sweet for conservatives. But will it last?
Time will tell.
StACLU has more. The ACLU is feeling tortured, as well. How bad can it be? ; )
