Rummy: Obama Admin Couldn’t Have Broken bin Laden
http://thepage.time.com/2011/05/04/rummy-obama-admin-co... /

On Fox and Friends, ex-DefenseSec says “even if he’d been captured...the interrogation policies of this administration, I think, would be unlikely to produce much intelligence.”

FORMER DEFENSE SECRETARY DONALD RUMSFELD TELLS FOX NEWS THAT THE SCANS OF BIN LADEN’S BODY WILL BE USED AS
“CREDIBLE EVIDENCE HE IS DEAD AND GONE”

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld appeared on FOX News Channel’s (FNC) FOX and Friends Wednesday morning to discuss Osama bin Laden’s death, specifically whether photos should be released and his opinion that it was “probably a good thing” to kill him because “the interrogation policies of this Administration, I think, would be unlikely to produce much intelligence from Osama bin Laden.”
Excerpts from the interview are below:

1. Why does anyone care what this war criminal has to say?
He fucked up every thing that he put his hands on.

2. Even Rumsfeld's logic is tortured
Is there anything RumFold can't think of without framing it as pro-torture?

11. The survival of the GOP is at stake.




They probably already know they lost the 2012 election.

Unless they get a whole lot of help from Diebold that is.

9. I think he's saying the Bush* admin would have gotten info, 'cause they tortured folks
whereas the Obama admin wouldn't have obtained info because they wouldn't have tortured him.

It's kinda sad how these fucks think that torture is a-okay.

12. Rumsfeld on Iraqi WMD: 'We know where they are.'
He is a known liar, and an liar about what is known, it is unknown if he has an honest bone in his lying body.

13. I think the last thing the Bush Crew had in mind was the killing or
the capture of their old buddy Bin Laden. He replaced the Cold War very well for the MIC.

14. Perhaps Rummy could tell us how much credible intelligence
has been produced by his methods. Last I heard, information obtained by torture couldn't be relied upon.

16. and his opinion matters, why?
all of morons* and rumspukes torturing didn't get us OBL. So now he believes that those same failed methods would have worked.

He needs to go back to eating puppys.

18. Bush’s Torture Lawyer Claims Credit for bin Laden’s Death, Criticizes Seals
Edited on Wed May-04-11 11:10 AM by steve2470
http://swampland.time.com/2011/05/04/bushs-torture-lawy... /

More Bush administration officials associated with the program of compliance-inducing “enhanced interrogation techniques” are coming out of the woodwork to claim a measure of credit for Osama bin Laden’s death.

John Yoo, who wrote the brief that provided legal cover for waterboarding, sleep-deprivation and other harsh interrogation methods, wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal today arguing that bin Laden’s assassination “vindicates the Bush administration, whose intelligence architecture marked the path to bin Laden’s door.”

Yoo further claims that “President George W. Bush, not his successor, constructed the interrogation and warrantless surveillance programs that produced this week’s actionable intelligence.”

Most provocatively, Yoo asserts that by killing bin Laden, rather than capturing and interrogating him, the Navy Seal team made a grave error. “Special forces using nonlethal weaponry might have taken bin Laden alive… one of the most valuable intelligence opportunities since the beginning of the war has slipped through our hands.”

*end of excerpt*

WTF, he goes after the SEAL team ?
