It has been some time since responding to this forum. I did not bother to read through the entire lengthy article.
First, Frontline.org just last night reported on the Bush adminstration response to 9/11, intelligence, CIA, and how this all led to Abu Ghraib and a new military subculture of barbaric brutality and villiany in the name of the Flag.
Second, the report outlined and even directly addressed how the intel out of Gitmo regarding Iraq and Al Qaida, referenced by Colin Powell and others, was definitively tied to the coercive, and by FBI reports, illegal and unconstitutional, interrogation techniques.
Third, why should I read an entire article here, given that its based on intel from tortured detainees? A simple conspiracy can be based on intel from tortured detainees, using that intel to further justify such methods.
Fourth, if the presence of intelligence agents or operatives are condemnation of an entire govt, then , Egypt was instrumental in orchestrating the first World Trade Center bombing given that the key player in the entire plot was an Egyptian intel agent. Serbia's conquest over the rest of Yugoslavia was apporved and supported by America given that Lawrence Eagleburger met with Milosevic right before the Serbs began their operations on Bosnia and Croatia.
Let there arise from amongst you a group inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and they are the successful ones. Al Imran:104
