Panel Faults C.I.A. Over Brutality and Deceit in Terrorism Interrogations
Perpetrated by the W-Cheney GOP administration: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/10/world/senate-intelligence-committee-cia-torture-report.html?_r=0
Late 2014: Now that we're back to scrutinizing 9-11 torture, maybe we can expand and review 9-11 ~ the single most beneficial event of the 1%-GOP Bush-Cheney occupation of the executive branch of our government for 8 fraudulent, excruciating and disastrous years ~ before it disappears back down the memory hole.
Early 2001: With the Bush-Cheney administration's criminal disregard of terrorist warnings, criminal DOJ legal memos & findings, exorbitant contact with the CIA and Bin Laden family, leading up to their shameless exploitation of THE 9-11 ATTACK, how is their subsequent massive imprisonment and torture not completely suspicious?
Late 2001: The Bush-Cheney administration was lobbying Congress for massive increases in defense spending and getting nowhere. But with 9-11 and each repetition of plane crash video into the Twin Towers on TV news, you could just hear the “Cha-Chings” of Congress' cash registers granting ever more Patriot Million$ to defend the Homeland. Massive no-bid contracts (many to Dick's Halliburton) and massive Pentagon and DOD funding (and fog of war WS robbery which eventually led to the 2008 crash) ensued. Then they pulled out the massive pre-written Patriot Act that became our new bible. That's not completely suspicious?
2002-2009: So with such success from 9-11 terror, why torture? To stop it? To protect the Homeland? That would be stupid and self-destructive! Another terror attack would unleash even more Patriot Million$! They tortured and defend it for other reasons. Cover-Up. To prove National Security was their motivation, that it was not about $$$$$$OIL~ARMS~CONTRACTS$$$$$$$!

Dick Cheney’s grotesque legacy:
Cheney Calls Torture Report A Crock, Says He’d ‘Do It Again In A Minute’: Cheney is a disciple of all the president Nixon's men, and is a true-believer of the “Imperial Presidency.” Hence the Noe-Fascism label given to that GOP-gone-wild era and regime, and Cheney's loathsome contempt for Laws and Democracy.

QUIT thinking it's hopeless! That's BULL SHIT the 1%-GOP wants you to believe.
The reason for Citizens United and massive 1% GOP Partisan Political Spending is to defeat Dems. When you don't Vote, you Vote RepubliCon!
