Details that just maybe don’t lie

Now this story on the NY Times adds yet more credibility to the people working for the government:

A former C.I.A. officer, John Kiriakou, told ABC News and other news media organizations in 2007 that Abu Zubaydah had undergone waterboarding for only 35 seconds before agreeing to tell everything he knew.

Yet, in reality according to the same story,

The C.I.A. officers used waterboarding at least 83 times in August 2002 against Abu Zubaydah, according to a 2005 Justice Department legal memorandum. Abu Zubaydah has been described as a Qaeda operative.

The 2005 memo also says that the C.I.A. used waterboarding 183 times in March 2003 against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-described planner of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Mr. Obama said C.I.A. officers who had used waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods with the approval of the Justice Department would not be prosecuted.

Now what kind of people repeatedly torture the same person and then add insult to the injury by trying to fool others into thinking he was a pussycat after all? Good ordinary people who are just trying to save the world from those evil terrorists and who are just too plain stupid and clueless to realize Al Qaeda either doesn’t really exist (it is a pure psy-op) or it is actually a black-op run by some people from either the Mossad or the CIA and also don’t have the wits to understand that after torturing the same person dozens of times the method isn’t working? Or maybe dare I say psychopaths who actually enjoy torturing people and are more than eager to inflict any amount of pain to other people in order to get them to falsely confess to things they have never done as long as it serves they interests?

And of course the fact that these sickos aren’t in jail or probably won’t go to jail doesn’t in any way imply that our governments are totally controlled by psychopaths with no conscience. Oh, no, that’s not possible, they are just ordinary people who lie and torture and condone torture and steal untold billions from the citizens and tell it’s for our own good.
