SENATE PANEL FINDS CIA TORTURE INEFFECTIVE, '"DAMAGING" TO U.S. INTERESTS

It is long past time to disband the CIA murderers and their evil, Satanic organisation, prosecute their torturers past and present along with Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld and all others that allowed them to run amok in Iraq, Afghanistan and the world

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence issued on Dec. 9 a long report describing the CIA’s Bush-era torture program as not "effective" and damaging to U.S. interests.


Bush, Cheney et al on the way to prison
The inquiry begun in 2009 made 20 key findings about the program launched during the Bush-Cheney administration, according to an analysis by the Washington Post.

The program, the senate oversight panel said, was:

1 “not an effective means of acquiring intelligence”
2 “rested on inaccurate claims of their effectiveness”
3 “brutal and far worse than the CIA represented”
4 “conditions of confinement for CIA detainees were harsher”
5 “repeatedly provided inaccurate information”
6 “actively avoided or impeded congressional oversight”
7 “impeded effective White House oversight”
8 “complicated, and in some cases impeded, the national security missions”
9 “impeded oversight by the CIA’s Office of Inspector General”
10 “coordinated the release of classified information to the media”
11 “unprepared as it began operating”
12 “deeply flawed throughout the program's duration”
13 “overwhelmingly outsourced operations”
14 “coercive interrogation techniques that had not been approved”
15 “did not conduct a comprehensive or accurate accounting of the number of individuals it detained”
16 “failed to adequately evaluate the effectiveness”
17 “rarely reprimanded or held personnel accountable”
18 “ignored numerous internal critiques, criticisms, and objections”
19 “inherently unsustainable”
20 “damaged the United States' standing in the world”

Update:  UN officials demand prosecutions for US torture, as reported by the Associated Press:

Justice Integrity Project coverage of the issue through the years included a column earlier this month reporting the fierce advocacy by the CIA and its allies to limit the details in the Senate report. That column and related articles are listed below in an appendix.


Traitors Hagel, Obama, Brennan

In 2010, we broke a story in Nieman Watchdog, a Harvard University publication for journalists, describing how the Obama administration was poised to continue a whitewash of internal U.S. Department of Justice probes initiated under the Bush-Cheney administration of the torture program and, separately, the firings of U.S. attorneys for political reasons.


That Nieman Watchdog column, New Questions Raised About Prosecutor Who Cleared Bush Officials in U.S. Attorney Firings, began: "Four days before Nora Dannehy was appointed to investigate the Bush administration’s U.S. attorney firing scandal, a team of lawyers she led was found to have illegally suppressed evidence in a major political corruption case.


This previously unreported fact calls her entire investigation into question as well as that of a similar investigation by her colleague John Durham of DOJ and CIA decision-making involving torture."

The disclosures of that column were widely reprinted in the alternative media, and added new and sinister perspective especially to our ongoing investigations of the Bush-Cheney political prosecutions of such figures as former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and many others, including such Republicans as the late Alaskan Sen. Ted Stevens.


Spawn of Satan:  CIA Director John Brennan
CIA Director John Brennan was identified in the Senate report as participating in the so-called "enhanced interrogations" during his career as a CIA officer before he became an advisor to the Obama 2008 presidential campaign and then a high level national security advisor in the White House of the Obama first term. Brennan has recently defended the CIA's practices and denounced the Senate investigation.



The Obama administration's reluctance to pursue justice in matters so serious as internal corruption at the Justice Department and torture helped broaden this project's focus from individual allegations of domestic law enforcement abuse.


Thus, our current scope includes reports of impropriety at top levels of all three federal branches, including the powerful intelligence and military organizations, and such supposed watchdog institutions as academia and the media.

Further research led also to my survey of the past half century of American politics, Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters, which explains how powerful behind-the-scenes players and institutions exercise hidden control over government leaders in such decision-making.



In 1946, President Harry S. Truman created the post of director of central intelligence to advise the president. Truman and Congress established the agency with the National Security Act of 1947.
