I'm watching Leslie Stah's interview on 60 Minutes regarding torture

They were using weasel words water boarding does not instill the "sensation" of drowning someone, you are drowning someone, you just don't finish the job.

And to Rodriguez; her interviewee, don't bullshit yourself along with the rest of us, that is torture regardless of the motivation for doing so.

1. I am screaming here saying it's torture Leslie Stahl

This is one crap segment of 60 Minutes - disgusting propaganda.
This was a war crime - plain and simple and no whitewashing will change that.

6. He's promoting a book of about how the CIA's torture program authorized by Bush and Cheney

saved the U.S.

It's all a big cover to hide the grotesque incompetence of the Cheney/Bush maladministration; that allowed 9/11 to happen in the first place.

5. in light of the crimes committed, this was an absolute puff piece.

when she asked about the 'innocents' or 'disappeared' he more or less said 'shit happens'

8. I'd like to know what the CIA's agenda is.

He wouldn't be able to publish one word without CIA approval. What do they expect to gain from bringing torture to the forefront again?
And Rodriguez..... the guy made his career being a professional liar and he would be happy working for any despot in the world.
