Lawyer: CIA kept detainees alive to keep torturing them

"In the military, there was actually a larger number of deaths than with the CIA," Sifton continued.

As if getting tortured to death in some detention camp wasn't bad enough, what about the families of these people who were never even notified of their detention?

Until we the people get back control of our government, gross abuses of power will continue. There must be outright transparency.

This way national security is not compromised.

S&F because MSM will never tell you such details as in this report.

Every one of the CIA members all the way up to Darth Cheney should at the very least get life imprisonment.

Following orders? I don't give two shakes of a cat of nine tails.
