Eyes on Egregious Excuses for Evil

Evil is at the door of each man’s heart, don’t let the torturers  get away with hardening your hearts. The truth will set you free. Look! and shun these liars who boldly look us in the eye and dredge up 9-11 to justify their heinous priggish dark and evil torturers against men, women, and children.  These workers of iniquity and their perpetration of horrors against mankind must be stopped and brought to justice!

“those responsible for signing off on [abuse] are still being feted on book tours and talk shows. We are still a long way from acknowledging the horrors of the CIA’s torture program, and achieving real accountability.”

Former CIA Director Hayden: We Didn’t Lie About Interrogation Program. Torture Report: Yeah, You Did. REPEATEDLY.

from the I-swear-I-thought-you’d-never-find-out! dept ,

by Tim Cushing

Former CIA director Michael Hayden warned anyone who would listen that the release of the Torture Report would turn our enemies against us… or further against us, or something. He also claimed that he and the CIA had been generally forthright and open about this program over the past several years.

“To say that we relentlessly, over an expanded period of time, lied to everyone about a program that wasn’t doing any good, that beggars the imagination,” Hayden said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Briefings to the full Committee beginning on September 6, 2006, also contained numerous inaccuracies, including inaccurate descriptions of how interrogation techniques were applied and what information was obtained from CIA detainees. The CIA misrepresented the views of members of Congress on a number of occasions. After multiple senators had been critical of the program and written letters expressing concerns to CIA Director Michael Hayden, Director Hayden nonetheless told a meeting of foreign ambassadors to the United States that every Committee member was “fully briefed,” and that “[t]his is not CIA’s program. This is not the President’s program. This is America’s program.” The CIA also provided inaccurate information describing the views of U.S. senators about the program to the Department of Justice.

A February 2007 report from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which the CIA acting general counsel initially stated “actually does not sound that far removed from the reality” was also criticized. CIA officers prepared documents indicating that “critical portions of the Report are patently false or misleading, especially certain key factual claims. CIA Director Hayden testified to the Committee that “numerous false allegations of physical and threatened abuse and faulty legal assumptions and analysis in the [ICRC] report undermine its overall credibility.'”

The committee has given us instead a one-sided study marred by errors of fact and interpretation—essentially a poorly done and partisan attack on the agency that has done the most to protect America after the 9/11 attacks.

In December 2003, a CIA Station overseeing CIA detention operations in Country [x] informed CIA Headquarters that it had made the “unsettling discovery” that the CIA was “holding a number of detainees about whom” it knew “very little,” Nearly five years later, in late 2008, the CIA attempted to determine how many individuals the CIA had detained. At the completion of the review, CIA leaders, including CIA Director Michael Hayden, were informed that the review found that the CIA had detained at least 112 individuals, and possibly more.

CIA Director Hayden typically described the program as holding “fewer than a hundred” detainees. For example, in testimony before the Committee on February 4, 2008, in response to a question from Chairman Rockefeller during an open hearing, Hayden stated, “[i]n the life of the CIA detention program we have held fewer than a hundred people.” {See DTS #2008-1140.) Specific references to “98” detainees were included in a May 5, 2006, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) report on Renditions, Detentions and Interrogations.

According to tlie CIA’s June 2013 Response, “Hayden did not view the discrepancy, if it existed, as particularly significant given that, if true, it would increase the total number by just over 10 percent.”

According to an email summarizing the meeting, CIA Director Hayden instructed a CIA officer to devise a way to keep the number of CIA detainees at the same number the CIA had previously briefed to Congress. The email, which the briefer sent only to himself, stated:

“I briefed the additional CIA detainees that could be included in RDI numbers. DCIA instructed me to keep the detainee number at 98 ~ pick whatever date i [sic] needed to make that happen but the number is 98.”

Contrary to statements later made by CIA Director Michael Hayden and other CIA officials that “[a]ll those involved in the questioning of detainees are carefully chosen and screened for demonstrated professional judgment and maturity, CIA records suggest that the vetting sought by [redacted] did not take place.

In testimony on April 12, 2007, CIA Director Michael Hayden referenced medical care of detainees in the context of the ICRC report on CIA detentions. Hayden testified to the Committee; “The medical section of the ICRC report concludes that the association of CIA medical officers with the interrogation program is ‘contrary to international standards of medical ethics.’ That is just wrong. The role of CIA medical officers in the detainee program is and always has been and always will be to ensure the safety and the well-being of the detainee. The placement of medical officers during the interrogation techniques represents an extra measure of caution. Our medical officers do not recommend the employment or continuation of any procedures or techniques. The allegation in the report that a CIA medical officer threatened a detainee, stating that medical care was conditional on cooperation is blatantly false. Healthcare has always been administered based upon detainee needs. It’s neither policy nor practice to link medical care to any other aspect of the detainee program.” This testimony was incongruent with CIA records.

CIA Director Hayden prepared a statement that relayed, “despite what you have heard or read in a variety of public fora, these [enhanced interrogation] techniques and this program did work.” The prepared materials included inaccurate information on the operation and management of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, as well as the same set of examples of the “effectiveness” of the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques that the CIA had provided to policymakers over several years. The examples provided were nearly entirely inaccurate.

Similarly, CIA Director Michael Hayden represented to the Committee on April 12, 2007, that “KSM also provided the first lead to an operative known as ‘Issa al-Hindi,’ with other detainees giving additional identifying information.” The CIA provided similar inaccurate representations regarding the thwarting of the United Kingdom Urban Targets Plot and the identification and/or arrest of Dhiren Barot, aka Abu Issa al-Hindi, in 17 of the 20 documents provided to policymakers and the Department of Justice between July 2003 and March 2009.

The CIA represented that CIA detainee Abu Zubaydah provided “important” and “vital” information by identifying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) as the mastermind behind the attacks of September 11, 2001 CIA Director Hayden told the Committee on April 12, 2007, that:

“..it was Abu Zubaydah, early in his detention, who identified KSM as the mastermind of 9/11. Until that time, KSM did not even appear in our chart of key al-Qa’ida members and associates.”

On at least two prominent occasions, the CIA represented, inaccurately, that Abu Zubaydah provided this information after the use of the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques.

On November 16, 2006, CIA Director Hayden briefed the Committee. The briefing included inaccurate information, including on the CIA’s use of dietary manipulation and nudity, as well as the effects of sleep deprivation.

Director Hayden testified that detainees were never provided fewer than 1,000 calories a day. This is inaccurate. There were no calorie requirements until May 2004, and draft OMS guidelines from March 2003 indicated that “[b]rief periods in which food is withheld(1-2 days), as an adjunct to interrogations are acceptable.”

Director Hayden testified that detainees were “not paraded [nude] in front of anyone,” whereas a CIA interrogator told the inspector general that nude detainees were “kept a center area outside the interrogation room,” and were “‘walked around’ by guards.'”

February 14, 2007, during a hearing on CIA renditions, Director Hayden provided inaccurate information to the Committee, to include inaccurate information on the number of detainees held by the CIA.

At the April 12, 2007, hearing, Director Hayden verbally provided extensive inaccurate information on, among other topics: (1) the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, (2) the application of Department of Defense survival school practices to the program, (3) detainees’ counter-interrogation training, (4) the backgrounds of CIA interrogators, (5) the role of other members of the interrogation teams, (6) the number of CIA detainees and their intelligence production, (7) the role of CIA detainee reporting in the captures of terrorist suspects, (8) the interrogation process, (9) the use of detainee reporting, (10) the purported relationship between Islam and the need to use the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques, (11) threats against detainees’ families, (12) the punching and kicking of detainees, (13) detainee hygiene, (14) denial of medical care, (15) dietary manipulation, (16) the use of waterboarding and its effectiveness, and (17) the injury and death of detainees.

At the CIA briefing to the Committee on December 11, 2007, Director Hayden testified about: (1) the information provided to the White House regarding the videotapes, (2) what the tapes revealed, (3) what was not on the tapes, (4) the reasons for their destruction, (5) the legal basis for the use of the waterboard, and (6) the effectiveness of the CIA’s waterboard interrogation technique. Much of this testimony was inaccurate or incomplete.

He lied to protect a program he thought was valuable, even when the CIA’s own documents and findings contradicted this belief. The pendulum swings toward “incompetent,” but doesn’t quite make it that far. There’s far too much calculation lying below the obfuscation to believe Hayden didn’t know exactly what he was doing when he spent briefing after briefing and hearing after hearing lying to his overseers about the extent of the program and the hideous details he was actively hiding from them.

It would almost seem as though Hayden’s concerns about the safety of the country are simply a projection of his concerns about what the report reveals about him. This is the guy who wants the public to believe the CIA was screwed by a partisan hatchet job and that domestic surveillance programs are every bit as necessary as torture when it comes to hunting down terrorists. But his own words and actions show he shouldn’t be trusted with an op-ed, much less the safety of American people.

Torture, ‘Meet the Press’ and Cheney’s Quest for Revenge

Dick Cheney gave no ground in his “Meet the Press” interview on Sunday, but he did something arguably even better: He bared his twisted soul.

Parrying questions from Chuck Todd with what he must have figured were winning talking points about the 9/11 terror attacks, Cheney unwittingly demonstrated how profoundly he has renounced fundamental American concepts of morality and justice.

Cheney’s most telling response was to Todd’s questions about people who were detained completely by mistake but who were nevertheless tortured — in at least one case to death.

You have to be something other than a normal human being not to be troubled by that.

But Cheney’s response was: “I’m more concerned with bad guys who got out and released than I am with a few that, in fact, were innocent.”

And he would famously do it all again. “I have no problem as long as we achieve our objective,” he said. “‘I’d do it again in a minute.”

What Cheney was saying is basically: If you have a goal and you kill innocent people while you’re at it, tough shit. That is how terrorists think; it’s not how moral people think — or at least are supposed to think.

I suspect that in the not-too-distant future, the defense of “rectal feeding” will become as signature a moment in torture apology as Cheney’s famous prediction that U.S. troops would be “greeted as liberators” has become to the false case for war in Iraq.

Any normal human being would be appalled by Todd’s question about how “Majid Khan’s lunch tray consisting of hummus, pasta, sauce, nuts and raisins was pureed and rectally infused.”

But not Cheney. “I believe it was done for medical reasons,” he said.

(“Rectal feeding” is not a medical procedure; it is a particularly sick and brutal form of abuse that in at least one case left a victim diagnosed as suffering from “an anal fissure and symptomatic rectal prolapse.”)

After listening to him on Sunday, it has never been clearer that to Cheney the interrogation of detainees was all about revenge — and about having, feeling and exercising power after feeling impotent in the face of an attack on the homeland. (After all, if he or anyone else in a position of power in the White House had paid an iota of attention to the issue before 9/11, the attack could likely have been averted.)

For Cheney, however, his “Meet the Press” appearance was still a win – at least in the short term, until history passes a more considered verdict.

Because our elite political media is unwilling to call out the morally abhorrent self-interested ravings of a torturer, Cheney’s statements effectively push the envelope for what is treated as legitimate debate.

So while we finally have this long-awaited Senate Intelligence Committee report, full of achingly detailed descriptions of abuse and lies even more depraved and duplicitous than any of us had imagined, the media just sees the “revisiting of a debate” about torture.

Last year, a bipartisan, blue-ribbon commission established by the Constitution Project did a good job of explaining how absurd it is that we are actually still arguing about any of this.

The blame for that rests in two places.

One is the Obama administration, for covering up what happened and trying to stifle any sort of national conversation on the topic.

The other is the media, for splitting the difference between the facts and the plainly specious, morally defective arguments led by Dick Cheney.

Torture Architect Tries to Justify Program … Fails Miserably

What Catastrophe?

MIT’s Richard Lindzen, the unalarmed climate scientist

Weekly Standard, Jan 13, 2014, Vol. 19, No. 17 • By ETHAN EPSTEIN
When you first meet Richard Lindzen, the Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology at MIT, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, leading climate “skeptic,” and all-around scourge of James Hansen, Bill McKibben, Al Gore, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and sundry other climate “alarmists,” as Lindzen calls them, you may find yourself a bit surprised. If you know Lindzen only from the way his opponents characterize him—variously, a liar, a lunatic, a charlatan, a denier, a shyster, a crazy person, corrupt—you might expect a spittle-flecked, wild-eyed loon. But in person, Lindzen cuts a rather different figure. With his gray beard, thick glasses, gentle laugh, and disarmingly soft voice, he comes across as nothing short of grandfatherly.

NOOOOOO, Thanks, Bill and Melinda Gags, if you insist, you may eat them, better yet if you’re so concerned about overpopulation why don’t you just quit eating altogether and save the planet the expense of YOUR upkeep? Human beings are not a burden to the earth, but there may be exceptions to this truism…….it seems you are out to prove that you and your kind are a boil upon the butt of the solar system, so sad to watch your lunacy roll out and flow over the world through the corporate owned media……but maybe not so loony? Hummmm? Just think of the profits in all that “egg goo”! Now that’s brilliant beyond brilliant!

UK Model of Selling Infrastructure Portrays US Future Sell Off to the 1%

Crystal ball not needed to peer into the future for “we the people” of the United States of America. All we need do it look to the condition of the people of the United Kingdom of Britain.

Their healthcare  the NHS being in tatters, and their pensioners being frozen out and forced out of their homes with bedroom taxes that make the escalating cost of heating fuel out of reach for them, and this next example of UK public schools and properties being given away for a pittance to private corporations and individuals who then sell them to the rich.

Gove the giver: schools given away.

This comes from the comments thread following an article about Gove’s maths curriculum plans:

first here’s the Guardian article itself:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2012/aug/13/michael-gove-maths-reforms-flawed-charity

Here’s the comment:

Gove once again distracting fromthe main point of his educatio reform – which is

In less than 18 months Michael Gove has transferred the title deeds of over 1900 English schools and the land the schools stand on to private companies

In less than 18 months OVER £1BILLION worth of title deeds now in the hands of the private sector

OVER £1BILLION state assets given away for free and accountants in the privatae sector cannot believe the government has also spent £481,750,000 in legal fees alone – nearly £HALF A BILLION in legal fees to transfer the title deeds of our schools to private companies

Now Gove has borrowed £half a billion – and we – the tax payers must pay this back – we the tax payers must pay the interest – to give away taxpayer owned assets to private companies

So when you pass the schools you paid to build, that you held the title deeds for – Michael Gove decided he wanted to give it away free

So who owns the schools now

In many cases Michael Gove has handed the title deeds to your school to Tory Party Members

Tory Party Member Mr Harris and his wife – they’ve been given the title deeds for lots of English schools and the land since Michael Gove became education secretary.

Now I wonder why Philip Harris and his good lady wife’s company has been handed the title deeds to taxpayer owned schools worth £100’s millions – Harris made donations to David Cameron as leader of the Conservative Party. He is considered to be one of his personal friends

Who else in the Tory Party is on the board of companies handed the title deeds to £100’s million of taxpayers title deeds to schools and land in England

Mr Stanley Fink – former banker and “god of hedge fund industry” — in 2009 appointed cop-treasurer of the Tory Party –

Fink previously donated £2.62m to the Conservative party

What has Stanley Fink got in return for being a member of the Tory Party and what return has he been given on his investment in the Tory Party

David Cameron gave him a seat in the House Of Lords immediately he came to power

David Cameron and Michael Gove have also gave his company the title deeds for schools and land worth, again, £100’s millions – via Ark Schools

Stanley Fink’s ark schools – state in their accounts – any “underspends” from their schools – the money goes to the Cayman Islands – via Stnaley Fink’s Ark Stockbrokers

So -Mr Gove – Let’s Talk Maths

When Tory’s are in charge of education –

How much did the goverment increase the deficit by just to pay for legal fees to transfer the title deeds of schools – we the taxpayers paid to build and which we owned – nearly HALF A BILLION to day in just 18 month

How Many members of the Tory Party now have the title deeds to the schools and the land ? – I’ve named just two, you tell us the rest

What is the Value of state assets Michael Gove and David Cameron have transferred from taxpayers – how much did the private companies pay for the assets (NOTHING)

How much have members of the Tory Party made from selling school land in the past 18 month (when they got it for free

How much money, from English Education funds, meant to be spent on Education of English children has been transferred to the Cayman Islands for the schools Tory Party Member Stanley Fink’s company controls

What is the total value of the schools and land so far (conservative estimates to date over £1billion – what’s the real figure Michael)

So when Michael Gove tells us children should read in Roman Numerals – Tory Party Members shake hands and congratulate themselves in abusing power in Goverment to transferring £1billion of state assets and Land to each other – that’s the only Maths Michael Gove is talking in England and they celebrate with champagne at how easy it all is

Hi Mystic

(old Cif posting from Scottish Lady, I think)

Probably this comment: ScottishLady comment (13 August 2012) Over £1 billion worth of title deeds are now in the hands of the private sector.

This rip-off of the century is being totally ignored by the media.

Why this conspiracy of silence?

I can find nothing in the Guardian (except in the comments sections) or in any other national newspaper.

Google throws up these, but they are hardly mainstream media:

Why is the media ignoring Michael Gove’s school privatisation bonanza? Liberal Conspiracy

£1billion of title deeds for schools transferred to private companies – IndyMedia UK

£1billion of title deeds for schools transferred to private companies – Mumsnet talk

Gove the giver: schools given away. (Michael Rosen blog)

Michael Gove and the school “Academification” process (blog)

further;

ExuroPythonissamMysticFish

Another post relevant to this from ScottishLady:

And of course when a school becomes an academy – who handles the teacher’s pension funds – hmm… would that be the private company – instead of the goverment

And then these companies also get their hands on £57 BILLION every year of taxes under the guise of an educaiton budget

Stanley Fink – his company states any “underspends” they transfer to a Cayman Ilsand fund (the money went into the ARk in £billions in £billions )

Of course Stanley Fink the Tory party treasurer has donated over £2 million to the Tory party – and Gove has handed his private company title deeds for schools and land worth at least £1i87million so far – not a bad return on your investment Stanley

 

Already the US has sold many toll roads, parks, and countless public properties to the Saudis, the Chinese, and who knows else? Our politicians now must endure lectures from our creditors (China’s ridiculing warning about our defaulting on their holdings of +trillion debts).

When we give the engine to pay the note can we drive our automobile to work anymore? It looks like the elite think they have the best chance of making all of us into their serfs once again. But I hope and pray that we will refuse their yoke of slavery.

Obamacare Already Employs Serco, British Company Under Investigation for Fraud

http://21stcenturywire.com/2013/10/05/british-company-under-investigation-for-fraud-hired-to-oversee-obamacare/

British outsourcing giant Serco has managed to construct a corporate state running parallel to the governments in Europe, Australia and the US. Now they are lined up to oversee large compartments of Obamacare in the US.

There’s only one problem: Serco is currently under investigation in the UK for invoicing fraud – billing the UK government for phantom services, including charging for electronic tagging of prisoners who did not exist. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

When All Else Fails, Go to War, $2,000,000,000,000. Debt to FED

“War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!”

No justice nor freedom nor creation of goods to the betterment of mankind will come from this war industry owned by the central bank corporations of the world.

 

Only blood, carnage, destruction, homelessness, poverty, disease, mayhem, pain, and misery will result in yet another United States of America/United Kingdom/NATO war theater being blasted open upon Syria.

 

The United States of American slave debt that the government office holders have agreed to with the Federal Reserve but that mankind does not owe to the Federal Reserve, $2,000,000,000,000. (two thousand billion dollars) was created out of thin air. It is bogus. It is counterfeit.

 

It is a debt that is unconstitutional and illegal and it therefore is an imaginary monster that cannot survive the light of day. Expose it! Fling open the closet door and look under the bed and turn on the light, for heaven sake don’t let it torment these United States of America and the rest of the world another moment!

 

 

 

Michael Rivero,

http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/allwarsarebankerwars.php

As long as Private Central Banks are allowed to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.

The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.

 

 

Arrest the bankers, I say! Take back the stolen powers to create money back to the Congress. If the present members of Congress don’t want the responsibility, then throw them out of office and elect those who will be fiscally accountable.

 

 

To attempt to comprehend the magnitude of and how enslaving this $2,000,000,000,000. debt is look at the following explanations from

http://ihtd.org/festivalguide/resources/how-much-is-a-trillion-dollars/

 

 

If a person’s salary is $40,000 per year it would take:

25 years to earn $1 Million
25 Thousand years to earn $1 Billion,
25 Million years to earn $1 Trillion

If you lived to be 80 years of age, to have:

$1 Million you would have to save $34 each day of your life,
$1 Billion you would have to save $34,000 each day of your life,
$1 Trillion you would have to save $34 Million each day of your life
If you stack a trillion-worth of $1000 bills together, then:
1 million dollars = 4 inches high
1 billion dollars = 364 feet high
1 trillion dollars = 63 miles high
(give or take a foot or two)
Note that this is a STACK, not laid end-to-end.
If you count backward, then:
1 million seconds = 12 days ago
1 billion seconds = 31 years ago
1 trillion seconds = 30,000 B.C.
(give or take a decade or two)
Slavery is the only payment the bankers really will accept because they know we are in too much debt to them.
But we do not really owe this debt to them at all after all is said and done the bankers have reaped a century and a half of payments through the wars and deaths of millions upon millions of human beings the world over.
The End Game is here and the age of the bankers is over. There is hope! A few like Ron Paul know what we could do to regain our fiscal sanity.
