Andrew McCarthy, noted retard, writes about the release today of four torture memos written under the presidency and administration of George W. Bush (also a noted retard):
A terrible decision, pushed for aggressively by AG Eric Holder… Holder’s press release, which suggests that the interrogators are in fact guilty of torture (“‘The President has halted the use of the interrogation techniques described in these opinions, and this administration has made clear from day one that it will not condone torture,’ said Attorney General Eric Holder. ‘We are disclosing these memos consistent with our commitment to the rule of law.'”)…
If only McCarthy had bothered to adjust his ocular pitch about negative two degrees. You know, like when he’s “talking to a member of the opposite sex”. And by “talking”, I totally mean “thinking about tittie banging that loudmouthed broad”. If that wasn’t obvious.
“The President has halted the use of the interrogation techniques described in these opinions, and this administration has made clear from day one that it will not condone torture,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “We are disclosing these memos consistent with our commitment to the rule of law.”
Holder also stressed that intelligence community officials who acted reasonably and relied in good faith on authoritative legal advice from the Justice Department that their conduct was lawful, and conformed their conduct to that advice, would not face federal prosecutions for that conduct. The Attorney General has informed the Central Intelligence Agency that the government would provide legal representation to any employee, at no cost to the employee, in any state or federal judicial or administrative proceeding brought against the employee based on such conduct and would take measures to respond to any proceeding initiated against the employee in any international or foreign tribunal, including appointing counsel to act on the employee’s behalf and asserting any available immunities and other defenses in the proceeding itself.
To the extent permissible under federal law, the government will also indemnify any employee for any monetary judgment or penalty ultimately imposed against him for such conduct and will provide representation in congressional investigations.
“It would be unfair to prosecute dedicated men and women working to protect America for conduct that was sanctioned in advance by the Justice Department,” Holder said.
Lying sack of shit.
