CIA Inspectors General Report on CIA due out tomorrow
I think we will see a change in subject on the news channels tomorrow. They have known this was coming for some time, they have had preliminary peek at it. So, them that persuades have a good idea what the Report contains; all the world is in alignment for hour and hours of coverage at virtually no cost what so ever in comparison to actual on-the-spot news reporting - so its a presumptive winner to be the replacement for Town Hall Meetings as the subject of the week for television, both cable and broadcast. Now all there is to wonder is if Eric Holder will dane to prosecute someone higher up the food chain in the CIA than Lindy England was in the Military. One can only hope.

3. Yup
It was the breathless lead-in story for the first 7 minutes or so on the local news, KTVU, Ch.2 in Oakland last night.

This was in place of health care, swine flu, cash for clunkers, the economy, transit strikes, and as always, major crime in the Bay Area. These have dominated news here for the last month.

When I commented to my wife that yes, the torture story will return to the news come Monday, she said "What torture?"

I responded "You know, Cheney and Afghanistan and rendition flights and Blackwater and Gitmo, and justification for the fake wars, the memos released, etc."

She knew generally that those items have been bubbling up for a while and I reminded her about Cheney's big show in the media about a month ago, prior to Town Halls and Cash for Clunkers grabbing headlines, etc., and that how convenient that when Obama released some of the torture memos back then, Cheney felt compelled to hit the media with his daughter with a round of vigorous denials and additional retaliatory accusations that Obama was bad for security, etc. Kind of like a pre-emptive strike to set the tone.

She commented that it seemed so long ago. She works a lot on Veterans' issues at her job, specifically health care for returnees that have severe PTSD and being denied care for it, so she knows many veterans of Iraq personally and works with them daily. We have strong feelings about it and we can't wait to see justice done. When you see these kids up close and personal and hear some of the horror stories you really resolve to have payback for all this, what has been done to them and to innocent suspects sometime soon.


Just my dos centavos,

robdogbucky
