George W. Bush "Knew Everything" About CIA Interrogation

The BBC, who shilled and lied the UK and the world into the illegal Afghan/Iraq wars for Bush and Blair now scramble for cover, attempting and failing miserably at disassociating, shielding themselves from the pending WAR CRIMES TRIALS

Former US President George W Bush was "fully informed" about CIA interrogation techniques condemned in a Senate report, his vice-president says.


Speaking to Fox News, Dick Cheney said Mr Bush "knew everything he needed to know" about the programme, and the report was "full of crap".

The CIA has defended its use of methods such as waterboarding on terror suspects after the 9/11 attacks.

The Senate report said the agency misled politicians about the programme.

But the former Republican vice-president dismissed this, saying: "The notion that the committee is trying to peddle that somehow the agency was operating on a rogue basis and that we weren't being told - that the president wasn't being told - is a flat-out lie." In the interview on Thursday, Mr Cheney said the report was "deeply flawed" and a "terrible piece of work," although he admitted he had not read the whole document.


President Bush "knew everything he needed to know, and wanted to know" about CIA interrogation, he said. "He knew the techniques... there was no effort on my part to keep it from him.

"He was fully informed."

Mr Bush led the charge against the report ahead of its release on Tuesday, defending the CIA on US TV.

"We're fortunate to have men and women who work hard at the CIA serving on our behalf," he told CNN on Sunday.




A summary of the larger classified report says that the CIA carried out "brutal" and "ineffective" interrogations of al-Qaeda suspects in the years after the 9/11 attacks on the US and misled other officials about what it was doing.


The pedophile packed, scandal-ridden BBC covered and shilled for both Blair and Bush, promoting their illegal, immoral "wars" and disseminating their filthy propaganda on demand

The information the CIA collected using "enhanced interrogation techniques" failed to secure information that foiled any threats, the report said.

have plenty of time for THIS in PRISON
But Mr Cheney said the interrogation programme saved lives, and that the agency deserved "credit not condemnation".

"It did in fact produce actionable intelligence that was vital in the success of keeping the country safe from further attacks," he said.

The UN and human rights groups have called for the prosecution of US officials involved in the 2001-2007 programme.

"As a matter of international law, the US is legally obliged to bring those responsible to justice," Ben Emmerson, UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism, said in a statement made from Geneva.


He said there had been a "clear policy orchestrated at a high level."

The chances of prosecuting members of the Bush administration are unlikely, not least because the US justice department has said that it has already pursued two investigations into mistreatment of detainees since 2000 and concluded that the evidence was not sufficient to obtain a conviction.


On Wednesday, an unnamed justice department official told the Los Angeles Times prosecutors had read the report and "did not find any new information" to reopen the investigation. 

Methods of the past?

None of the countries where the prisons were located has been identified in the report, but several countries suspected to have hosted so-called "black sites" reacted strongly to the publication.


The BBC was well aware of the CIA "rendition" programs, the "black sites"  and torture that took place in these illegal prisons yet chose to cover them up

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani is among the world leaders to have condemned how the agency imprisoned and questioned al-Qaeda suspects.


UK Afghan/Iraq military deaths will eventually be classified as murders

He said the programme "violated all accepted norms of human rights in the world".

And Russia's Foreign Ministry called the report "confirmation of gross, systemic human rights violations by the American authorities."


The BBC through it's propaganda and lies assured continuing, needless UK military deaths and casualties

Russia has previously criticised the US for placing sanctions on top Russian officials after accusing them of human rights violations.


War criminal, mass-murder Obama believes that by merely
saying CIA war crimes "belong in the past" that the public
will simply forgive and forget, when in fact they will
NEVER forget and he will be sitting beside Blair, Cameron,
Bush and Cheney in the Hague 
US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that he hoped that the publication of the report would "help us leave these techniques where they belong - in the past."

He banned harsh interrogation techniques after taking office in 2009, and has acknowledged that some methods amounted to torture.

Some Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee released a minority report, accusing the Senate of having a "flawed analytical methodology," "inadequate objectivity" and "political considerations." However, influential Republican Senator John McCain argued that torture "rarely yields credible information" and that even in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden the most important lead came from "conventional interrogation methods."

Two More U.S. Troops Killed In Afghanistan Attack

Two more lives needlessly wasted, two more families destroyed; HOW LONG WILL AMERICANS CONTINUE TO ALLOW THIS  

AP VIA THE GUARDIAN
12/13/2014

An insurgent attack on a convoy in eastern Afghanistan has killed two US troops, according to an international military official.


A US official later confirmed the news.

The official said the attack happened near the Bagram air base in Parwan province near the capital, Kabul, late on Friday. 

The official spoke on condition of anonymity as the information was not authorised for release.

Nato’s International Security Assistance Force said in a statement that two service members “have died as a result of an enemy forces attack in eastern Afghanistan." 


Nato does not identify the nationalities of the dead, relying instead on their home countries.


WHEN will Americans put a stop to THIS?

The deaths bring to 65 the total number of international troops killed in Afghanistan this year, 50 of them Americans. The latest casualties are the first for this month, ahead of the drawdown of most international troops on 31 December.

New Evidence Bush Misled Americans Into Iraq War – Senator

There is an avalanche of evidence against both Bush and Obama criminal administrations for WAR CRIMES  

RT
12/13/2014

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee has released new information claiming the Bush administration misled the American people in the run-up to the war in Iraq.


Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said on Thursday that a 2003 CIA cable warns the administration of former President George W. Bush against making reference to claims that Mohammad Atta – the leader of the 9/11 hijackers – had met with an Iraqi intelligence officer in the Czech Republic before the attacks.


Levin, who is retiring, maintains that Bush officials used the unconfirmed meeting to link Iraq to 9/11 and Al-Qaeda in order to justify the US invasion in Iraq.


"There was a concerted campaign on the part of the Bush administration to connect Iraq in the public mind with the horror of the Sept. 11 attacks. That campaign succeeded," said Levin, who cited opinion polls from that time showing that many Americans believed former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was involved in the attacks. "Of course, connections between Saddam and 9/11 or Al-Qaida were fiction."


The prisons will be filled to overflowing with the Bush war criminals, who already cannot travel overseas for fear of arrest

Levin has called for the full declassification of the Prague CIA cable and has repeatedly called on the directors of the CIA to make it public. Levin said the war in Iraq was the most significant event in his 36 years as a United States senator, and the cable is an important historical record showcasing why the US went to war in Iraq in 2003.


On Thursday, he read into the Congressional Record a letter he received from CIA Director John Brennan on March 13, 2014, declassifying for the first time a statement from the cable.


Drunken, retarded Bush bangs on the bongos like a chimpanzee while THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN MILITARY PERSONNEL ARE MURDERED IN HIS ILLEGAL WARS 

“[T]here is not one USG [counterterrorism] or FBI expert that...has said they have evidence or ‘know’ that [Atta] was in indeed [in Prague]. In fact the analysis has been quite the opposite.”

for prison with his master
In his speech, Levin referred to an appearance by Vice President Dick Cheney on 'Meet the Press' on December 9, 2001, where Cheney said: "It's been pretty well confirmed that he (Atta) did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April, several months before the attack."



Levin said that, far from “pretty well confirmed,” there was almost no evidence that such a meeting took place, or records to indicate that it had. He said, in fact, that Atta was almost certainly in the United States at the time of the purported meeting in Prague.

in the can
“Mr. President, those statements were simple not true. We did know. 

We did know there was no evidence that such a meeting had taken place,” he said. “The Vice President (Dick Cheney) recklessly disregarded the truth, and he did so in a way calculated to maintain support for the administration’s decision 
to go to war in Iraq.”


War criminal Tony Blair will be joining the
Bush murderers in the dock at the Hague
Levin said he is bringing up the CIA cable from a decade ago because it is about giving the American people a full account of the march to war as new information becomes available. He said it is about trying to hold leaders who misled the public accountable, and about warning future leaders that they must not commit sons and daughters to battle on the basis of false statements.


Levin said that at the time, the Bush administration campaign was successful in convincing more than half of Americans that Saddam Hussein was directly involved in the attacks. He added that in a poll taken six months after the invasion of Iraq, 70 percent of Americans believed it was likely that Hussein was personally involved in the September 11 attacks.


Levin also referred to a memoir published by the former head of the Czech Republic's counterintelligence, Jiri Ruzek, who wrote: “It is becoming more and more clear that we had not met expectations and not provide the ‘right’ intelligence output… The Americans showed me that anything can be violated, including the rules they themselves taught us.”


Levin said that Director Brennan’s apparent refusal to declassify the cable or ask the Czech government if it objects to the release of the cable “takes on the character of continuing cover-up.”
