It seems the definition of torture has changed since I was pulling finger nails out in the dungeons under thr MOD Main Building!

For different reasons, I looked up the Nazi mass-murderer Franz Stengl in Wiki, and found that at the end of his imprisonment he seems to have accepted a kind of guilt.

"So yes," he said finally, very quietly, "in reality I share the guilt. . . . Because my guilt . . . my guilt . . . only now in these talks . . . now that I have talked about it all for the first time. . . ." He stopped.

Above you have a picture of an Islamist mass-murderer. Do you think he will repent 9/11, or Bali, or all the rest of it? No. He has the Koran, the holy Koran, on his lap.

It seems that the report was written by the democrats on this committee; no input from the republicans and they didn't interview any CIA people. I guess the CIA and the democrats deserve each other.

I assume, BOE, that they were civil servants - so all is forgiven.

Exactly so, Dom.

I note, from reading her Wiki bio, that the lady {?} has never had a real job. A lifetime of sponging on the Californian and US taxpayers. I am working on the premise that California is not part of the US [according to an East Coast friend] :-)

It's not even part of the planet from what I hear!

Keep in mind, also, that what has been released is an "Executive Summery." The Left does this frequently, write a "summary" that says the opposite of what the full report will say. The "summery" is remembered and the full report ignored. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Michael's observation is of extreme import.
