Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Moral High Horse

Posted by madjillmom on December 9, 2014

Thanks so much Senator Feinstein. You have climbed to the summit of your moral high ground to tell us all what we all know. The United States has used torture against our enemies. You thrust out your chin and told us all just how bad you and the other Dems on your committee think we are. You cleansed yourself. Thanks so much for doing this a few weeks before one of our sons deploys to Obama’s muddled Middle East.

A few questions:

Did you concern yourself with how this throws gasoline on an already raging fire? Is the revelations in this report worth another one of our citizens or another member of our military being killed or tortured in response. Will you sleep when ISIS/ISIL announces it will kill again because of these old revelations (in vivid detail) in a shiny book form for us all to read?  I won’t be getting much sleep because of it.

$40,000,000 expense? Really. You are borrowing from my unborn grandchildren to fund your moral hobby high horse?

In this shiny book, is there any evidence that we threatened on video to cut off some detainee’s head, posted video’s to the parents of the detainee, then made another video cutting off the head of a detainee for all the world to see? No. I don’t think so.

Are you feeling guilty that you went along with this for a time?

How do you think Putin and Kim Jong Un will suddenly get religion and make mea culpa reports on their abuse? They are laughing at us.

Do you not believe in covert action to serve our purposes? Many of us do believe in such action.

So your $40,000,000 report says no good intel was gained by this? There are those who say otherwise but you don’t include their opinion. I am pretty certain that some good intel came from this. Not none. But some. Not as much as the CIA says was obtained, but certainly not “none”.

Are you willing to send one of your grandchildren into harms way beside my son after revealing this one sided report?

OrAre you just really pissed off that Obama’s CIA was hacking your office computers and you want to make them pay? How dare they do that to someone as important as you.

Obama just drones them. Is this better? Do we get any intelligence when they are droned from afar?

Those who now provide some intelligence will no longer do so because they know a report on their actions will be churned out of a Senate Committee by a Woman with High Morals.

Billable Hours and the 9/11 Conspirators

Posted by madjillmom on November 16, 2009

Attorney General Eric Holder’s tortured decision to try Khalid Sheikh Muhammed in civilian court is going to backfire on the Obama administration. At the outset, Holder is saying that KSM will not be acquited. Doesn’t that make it a show trial with a predetermined result? Further, how can KSM receive a fair trial in NYC? I guess it won’t be a fair trial. Do you want to serve on that jury, sequestered for months on end in a NYC hotel? The taxpayers will pay for that bill too.

Most galling to me is the certain knowledge that we as taxpayers will get to pay for the squad of New York attorneys for KSM. Discovery alone will eat up millions of dollars and a maximum of time even prior to a show trial with maximum bloviating by KSM and his cohorts. A military tribunal would cost the salaries of the military lawyers (who are already being paid thus no extra expense) and be brief and to the point. Think about an OJ type trial with the constant press 24/7. Our best hope is that KSM and crew want to plead guilty and be martyred. Somehow, I don’t think they will pass up the chance of a show trial for martyrdom.
