AP report: Source claims Obama intel pick tied to CIA torture program


rawstory.com

A former Bush administration official nominated by President Barack Obama to serve at DHS was linked to the CIA’s torture program, a source tells the Associated Press.

An AP article claims that a congressional aide “who spoke on condition of anonymity,” and wasn’t “authorized to discuss the matter publicly,” has “confirmed that [Philip] Mudd, who was deputy director of the Office of Terrorism Analysis at the CIA during the Bush administration, had direct knowledge of the agency’s harsh interrogation program.”

This guy is well known in the intel community as a "cowboy".....Now, I pose a few questions:

Did the Administration know of his background?

Does this muddle the cries for "investigation" of Bush administration lawyers?

Where does that put the majority controlled Congress during his confirmation hearings?

The should have known. If they didn't, then they are falling down on the job and are so inexperienced and inept that they shouldn't be running the country.

perhaps they thought they could 'slip it through'.

This article is about one thing alone

No Accountability
Govt. can do whatever it wants and not only will they NOT be accountable, they just might get a pay rise.


Ron Paul: No End To Secret Prisons!? Ignoring Habeas Corpus!? No Penalty For Torture!?

I might change it a little to:

Govt can do whatever it wants and not be accountable and you will be blamed!!!!!

Well, the guy had ties to CIA and the torture program.

The question is: Did he at least pay his taxes???

Like I say over and over, our government is so full of corruption that they rather than bring fresh meat to the government they just recycle the same trash over and over again because the secrets are to big and damaging to let them go with somebody that can hold a grudge.

So there you have it, more recycle trash from one administration to the other.
