In keeping with his administration’s anti-America stance, Chairman MAObama released for public dissemination previously classified CIA interrogation techniques . Sen. Patrick Leahy, dumbocrat from Vermont, immediately called for an independent “Commission of Inquiry”. Perhaps his constituents will begin impeachment proceedings against him for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. One example of the “torture” techniques used by CIA operatives included placing a caterpillar in a box with islamo-fascist terrorist Abu Zubaydah.
Narrative and Notes Reliable Abu Zubaydah was a operations planner as well as senior facilitator for al-Qaeda operatives, arranging their movements to avoid capture from authorities. He assisted in al-Qaeda’s move from Sudan in Afghanistan in 1996. He arranged for fighters to travel from Afghanistan to Chechnya and Bosnia in the late 1990s and oversaw the “Khalden group” of training camps in Afghanistan between 1995 and 2000. Trained in document forgery and explosives. Procured money from donors in the Arabian peninsula and sent it to Pakistan militant networks. Helped Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and 70 other fighters move from Kandahar, Afghansitan to Iran in November 2001. He was plotting an attack in Israel at the time of his capture. He was severely wounded during his capture and might have died but for medical treatment arranged by the Central Intelligence Agency. During his interrogation, he first identified Khalid Shaikh Mohammed as the 9-11 mastermind. He also provided information that contributed to the capture of Ramzi Binalshibh. He was one of 14 key al-Qaeda operatives and associates transferred from CIA custody to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2006.1,2 Sources 1 ’Detainee Biographies,’ press release, Director of National Intelligence, Sept. 6, 2006. 2 ’Summary of the High Value Terrorist Detainee Program,’ press release, Director of National Intelligence, Sept. 6, 2006.
Obama condemned what he called a “dark and painful chapter in our history,” and said the interrogation techniques would never be used again.
Our foreign and domestic enemies can sleep easier at night with MAObama and the dumbocrats at the wheel. Caterpillars and sleep deprivation constitute “torture”. Cutting victims heads off on videotape with rusty swords while exclaiming “Allah Akbar”, and subsequently uploading the video to Al Jazeera is a man-caused disaster.
