Anyone else watch "60 Minutes" tonight?

That CIA asshole, I wanted to smack him in the face with a 2 x 4.

Smug, self-righteous, deceptive, and sadistic.

4. Creepy bastard. He was just making excuses and trying to cover his ass.

However, he stated the people at the highest levels approved everything. So he fingered them all.

5. Not Just Creepy, Criminal

 

That guy sat there and admitted to criminal acts that got Germans and Japanese hung in 1945 !

What came to my mind:
Why would the CIA let him come on and say ANYTHING?
I guess they/he is not afraid of any repercussions of coming on and admitting he is a war criminal?

Interesting how his main justification was:
'You have to remember how scared we were back then.' <words to that effect...

Wasn't there a day in America when this would be met with public/media outrage?
Won't even be a blip on a radar tomorrow...

8. Yes. And he bragged about his "reason" for destroying the tapes.

"To protect the guys on the tape from Al-Qaeda."

John Kiriakou, who said torture is wrong, gets indicted.

9. My husband is convinced CIA threatened

Obama and his family and that's why no one got in trouble for war crimes, including Bush and Cheney.

I was blown away last night to see the CIA office called George Bush Intelligence Agency or something like that, made me sick.

11. slap in a way that doesn't hurt you mean?
