Obama Trying to Make America into the Bad Guy
Obama is at it again. Obama is trying to paint America as the bad guy. While Obama releases tactical information that empowers are enemies to better fight our interrogation methods he fails to release the part of the report that lists the effectiveness of these now effective-less methods.
<blockquote>Cheney said in a “Fox News” interview with Sean Hannity that he found it disturbing that Obama did not also release memos that Cheney said documented the effectiveness of the interrogations — a point contested by some experts. </blockquote>
So, while Obama tries to make us out to be the bad guy and weaken us on the battlefield he fails to acknowledge the effectiveness of some of these techniques. Since, we have a such a short memory let me remind you.
The terrorists’ target was a notable Los Angeles office building, he said during a speech given at the National Guard Association of the United States’ headquarters. The 73-story Los Angeles office building, the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River, was called the Library Tower at the time of the terrorist plot. It was renamed US Bank Tower in 2003. The plot was thwarted in early 2002 when a Southeast Asian nation arrested a key al Qaeda operative who was in on the plan. Subsequent debriefings and other intelligence operations made clear the intended target and how al Qaeda hoped to execute it This critical intelligence helped other allies capture the ringleaders and other known operatives who had been recruited for this plot. The ringleader of the West Coast plot was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was al-Qaeda’s military chief at the time. Mohammed was later captured in Pakistan in March 2003, Bush said. Mohammed had planned to employ members of JI, an al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group located in Southeast Asia, for the Los Angeles operation, Bush said. The al Qaeda chief wanted young South Asian men rather than Arabs to conduct the operation, he said, so as not to arouse as much suspicion.
The bold was added by me. So, what interrogation methods were used to get all that information. Coffee and donuts? Yeah right!
