Comments on: Ex-Attorney General Gonzales backs CIA prison abuse probe http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/01/ex-attorney-general-gonzales-backs-cia-prison-abuse-probe/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TDI http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/01/ex-attorney-general-gonzales-backs-cia-prison-abuse-probe/comment-page-1/#comment-396290 Thu, 03 Sep 2009 20:25:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=19657#comment-396290 Well, yesterday, Gonzalez was for an investigation. I guess he got a fish in his mailbox this morning. Today, he says that just because he thinks it’s “legitimate to question and examine” the interrogators’ conduct, he doesn’t endorse an investigation:

Sept 3, (Washington Times)–“I don’t support the investigation by the department because this is a matter that has already been reviewed thoroughly and because I believe that another investigation is going to harm our intelligence gathering capabilities and that’s a concern that’s shared by career intelligence officials and so for those reasons I respectfully disagree with the decision.”

Imprison our nations best, or those who had the best of intentions in mind. The lesson learned from this is, we should have milk and cookies with our enemies. And if they act bad by killing our families, they get a “time out”.

It also shows how incompetent Texas Tech and their chancellor, Kent Hance is for hiring him to teach one course a year for $100,000.00. The fact that Hance is a republican lobbyist (Wickopedia) might have something to do with it.

“those (CIA officers) who went beyond permitted interrogation techniques should be investigated.”

According to current CIA Director Panetta the entire IG report has been in the hands of the Department of Justice since 2004.

The Justice Department investigated and declined to prosecute.

Well, at least we know there was no political interference in that decision — since the guy who was in charge of DOJ — Gonzales — seems unaware of what his own department decided.

What a knucklehead.

Generals are ganging up on the “bad apples” who tortured beyond the memos to protect the lawyers who wrote the memos. The torture never stops…

Gonzales is willing to sacrifice the CIA agents that carried out the illegal torture authorized by Bush/Cheney’s Justice Dept. This would be a joke if it were not such a serious matter.

He tried this approach when he allocated the drafting of the government health care plan to congress and look at the problems it has caused him!
