    The Irony Grows Deeper – Key Intel Came From Enhanced Interrogations In Secret Prisons

    The Irony Grows Deeper – Key Intel Came From Enhanced Interrogations In Secret Prisons

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out, via AP:

    Officials say CIA interrogators in secret overseas prisons developed the first strands of information that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.

    Current and former U.S. officials say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, provided the nom de guerre of one of bin Laden’s most trusted aides. The CIA got similar information from Mohammed’s successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi. Both were subjected to harsh interrogation tactics inside CIA prisons in Poland and Romania.

    The ironies of this story are growing deeper and deeper by the hour. 

    Obama and his supporters, who opposed the secret intelligence operations and interrogations as illegal, now are reaping the political benefits of those operations and interrogations.

    Alternative characterization:

     “Obama may be re-elected because George Bush had the good sense not to listen to Obama.”

    Update:

    And Cheney’s assassination squad just killed bin Laden.  More on Cheney’s assassination squad here.

    See what a fun visit to a waterboarding theme park can do?

    I'd love to see Israel test our lefty friends' newfound love of targeted assassination and go after every single terrorist in any position of authority/leadership they've had their eyes on … immediately!

    And then when the usual suspects suddenly stop cheering and throwing Obama up in the air in celebration and turn on a dime and get indignant … Israel just says, "Excuse me?"

    Like water off a duck's back, the human brain, once infected with leftism is impervious to facts, logic, wisdom, prudence, shame and charges of hypocrisy.

    Why should this time be any different?

    Professor, I'd never heard of Dan Friedman. Nice find! Reminds me a bit of Jonathan Richman (from whom, a video or two wouldn't go amiss).

    Obama and his supporters, who opposed the secret intelligence operations and interrogations as illegal…

    They said that they oppose them as illegal…but they lie. Their opposition was always purely political.

    It is great that we finally got Bin Laden. It is sweet sweet irony that we got him via boots-on-the ground 120 miles or so inside a country that we are not at war with based on intelligence that we tortured out of people has the leftys dancing in the streets chanting "4 more years".
