Meet the Press Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta admitted that information gleaned from waterboarded detainees was used to track down al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and kill him.
How is this possible when all of our most trusted leaders have assured us that waterboarding had no information gathering value and only served to endanger us further by making those who hate us, adopt an even more hateful attitude toward us than usual? This must surely be a disinformation strategy to confuse our enemies both foreign and domestic, which is to say those conservative members of Congress and the courts.
Some suggest that Mr. Panetta's trip through the CIA directorate has temporarily caused a "reality shift". Let us hope that this reality sensitivity is not epidemic among our useful idiot class. But further questioning on this, or any other significant issue, will likely be ignored by our faithful Pink Press and our low information constituency is safe and secure.
We are now free to return to the pressing issues of the day: "Who will win the Super Bowl?"
I approve of waterboarding when it is done correctly, as developed by Ted Kennedy.
