General Hayden Lets the Cat out of the Bag

Former CIA Director, General Michael Hayden, had a lot to say today on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. Among other things, he expressed his dismay over President Obama releasing classified information about our past interrogation techniques--the same dismay shared by everyone in the country, save the President and his inner circle. I highly recommend watching the entire segment.

I decided to post a short, fascinating snippet of General Hayden discussing "torture," not to be missed by anyone who enjoys reinforcing their own common sense.


  1. This could be a tipping point.

  2. Can I go after this present administration?...

    Because what I'm hearing from them is DEFINITELY torture...

    Political Wrinkles

  3. If it does work...the whole debate is over before it even began.

  4. I know I'm years too late for this, but a counterpoint to mkfreeberg needs to be posted:

    In what capacity does it need to work? If we get 9 people to admit they stole apples from street vendors, while the man who knows about an impending suicide bombing refuses to crack, can we claim that torture works most of the time?

    By the way, I'm not in the presidents inner circle and I have nothing against declassifying torture tactics. Letting people know what's going to happen to them isn't going to help them when they actually have to DEAL with the torture.


Please tell me what you really think.
