CIA Torture-The Real Reason
Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 21, 2014
The torture report is pretty bad both for the victims and US.
What was released is the executive summary. The least of the worst. Can you imagine what was left out. It is likely beyond the imagination of the non-sociopath.
One thing that was left wanting is the real reason for the torture program, at least in the beginning. That would be trying to find the slightest excuse to pin Al Qaeda support and the 9/11 attacks on Iraq. See Justin Raimondo here.
Major Charles Burney, a psychiatrist who served at the Guantanamo Bay facility, told the committee that “a large part of the time we were focused on trying to establish a link between al-Qaeda and Iraq.
Raimondo illustrates how while the interrogators were trying to convince prisoners to spill, the neocons were telling us about fake uranium, bio and gas weapons.
While all this was happening in the underground torture chambers, up above ground the neocons were torturing the truth with fabricated “evidence” of Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction.”Remember the Niger uranium papers – crude forgeries – used by President George W. Bush in his 2003 State of the Union speech to back up the claim that Iraq was seeking to procure fissionable material to make a nuke? Then there was the tall tale about an Iraqi intelligence officer who had supposedly met 9/11 hijacker Mohmmed Atta at an airport in Prague. Ahmed Chalabi and his fellow “heroes in error” provided a constant stream of ersatz “intelligence” that invariably wound up on thefront page of the New York Times. All of it was utter nonsense…
Torture wasn’t used to discover plots. It’s intent was to justify the long planned invasion of Iraq. This having nothing to do with 9/11 and everything to do with control of it’s oil and pipelines.
Woe to those living in a country (other than Israel) that doesn’t do what Uncle Sam tells it.
After sixty some years of overthrowing governments, assassinations and funding their ops by enabling drug sales is this really a surprise?
Be seeing you
