Great news for AQ?

Wash Post reports the logical development of the Abu* scandal: CIA Puts Harsh Tactics On Hold

In other words, once again CIA is being defunged, even before it had a chance to recover from the defungings of the 1970s (Church) and 1990s (Toricelli). I have no doubts that Tom Bailey welcomes this development, but with the international terrorism on the increase and AQ likely set to strike in the US before the elections, exactly how wise is this?

Quote:The CIA has suspended the use of extraordinary interrogation techniques approved by the White House pending a review by Justice Department and other administration lawyers, intelligence officials said.

The "enhanced interrogation techniques," as the CIA calls them, include feigned drowning and refusal of pain medication for injuries. The tactics have been used to elicit intelligence from al Qaeda leaders such as Abu Zubaida and Khalid Sheik Mohammed.
......

In other words, this was something practically used, and perhaps the reason why no post-9/11 attack happened.

Quote:Current and former CIA officers aware of the recent decision said the suspension reflects the CIA's fears of being accused of unsanctioned and illegal activities, as it was in the 1970s.

In other words, PC trumps the security.

Did our liberal friends at CBS/New Yorker/NY Times and like just doomed thousands of people to death?

What say you?
Government is necessary because people left unchecked will do evil.

The government is composed of people left unchecked
