Lies, More Lies, Still More Lies… and the Simpletons Who Repeat Them

by Scott Creighton

I don’t know how else I can put this: “waterboarding” is illegal and has been for some time, but we have ALREADY addressed this a year ago when John Yoo first became a household name. So, why are we talking about it NOW?

It’s a DISTRACTION people.

All the dissent groups are talking about torture. Keith Olbermann is talking about torture. The republican sites are deliberately mouthing off in ludicrous ways about torture NOT being torture so as to fuel the fire and keep this crap going as LONG AS POSSIBLE.

Why?

Well, let’s try to take our feeble little minds back a few weeks and see what was the BIG ISSUE (read as “current ongoing criminal activity”) facing the nation and drawing much unwanted attention from the liberals and the conservatives alike.  Hmm… what could that have been?

Jane Harman, a California Democrat, did what politicians usually do when forced to face unpleasant facts: she brazened it out. In a response to the Congressional Quarterly piece by Jeff Stein that has proved such an entertaining embarrassment, she brayed:

“These claims are an outrageous and recycled canard, and have no basis in fact. I never engaged in any such activity. Those who are peddling these false accusations should be ashamed of themselves.”
