The CIA and Its Torturers
By Andrew P. Napolitano
December 11, 2014

*** begin quote ***

When the head of the CIA’s torture unit decided to destroy videotapes of his team’s horrific work, he unwittingly set in motion a series of events that led to the release this week of the most massive, detailed documentation of unlawful behavior by high-ranking government officials and intentional infliction of pain on noncombatants by the United States government since the Civil War era. Here is the backstory.

*** and ***

What should we make of this report on government torture? In a free society in which the government works for us, we have a right to know what it is doing in our names, and we have a reasonable expectation that the laws the government enforces against us it will enforce against itself. But don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

I like the Judge.

And, I respect his opinion.

I’d need more on the alleged “plots stopped” to make a value judgment.

On the face of it, and knowing the Gooferment’s willingness to create “false flags”, as well as lie, cheat, and steal.

I’m more to the Judge’s side of the argument than those who post 9/11 pictures on Facebook.

Not sure that this prevented anything.

If it did, I’d be more “understanding”. Slaps on the wrist rather than condemnation.

But, the USA is in everyone’s business and needs to pull back.

Argh!

Not that anyone listens to one fat old white guy injineer blogger!

Nobody says, “I hope I die in a hospital bed in the ICU in a lot of pain.” If you were to query your friends, most people would probably say, “I hope I die at home in my sleep.” (In fact, according to some surveys, as many as 70 percent to 90 percent of people would prefer to die at home.) The uncertainty of knowing when and where we will shrug off the mortal coil is a great source of angst for many of us humans. Dogs and cats have it a little different.

Agree. Dying in a hospital is barbaric. Being in a hospital with little hope is pretty bad.

Maybe it’s the time of year or time of my life, but these thoughts are troubling.

Hope people make their pets comfortable.

Losing a pet is hard; losing a spouse hardest think I’ve ever endured.

Argh!

Maudlin.

But this is an excellent idea for the ETHICAL treatment of pets and animals.
