Democrats charged Tuesday that the CIA has released documents about congressional briefings on harsh interrogation techniques in order to deflect attention and blame away from itself.
Asked for comment about the Democrats’ charges, CIA spokesman George Little said only that the CIA “understands the importance of a strong relationship with the Congress, which in our democracy, conducts oversight of secret intelligence activities.”

It did not take long in Vietnam for the troops to figure it out.
You don't take prisoners.
There were no prison camps
There was no torture

Here is my question if the democrats where breifed and approved it which they were.
And they started pointing fingers at the CIA which they did.
And people who live in glass houses don't throw stones...which they don't.
Why are they putting on this little show for us?
If I didn't know better...I just might draw the conclusion some one is trying just as hard as they can to forment a revolution in America, Civil War or some other act of rebellion.
Now since the Democrats, Republicans and CIA are all in on this little show they are putting on for us...
And we are the only ones left out of the loop, you know us silly citizens that the government is supposed to work for...there must be some advantage in getting us all to seriously mistrust each and every person in our government to the point no one left can pretend it serves us no matter how much koolaide they drank.
Where would be the advantage in that and for who?
Makes me really wonder!
