Former CIA officer accused of abusing suspect now training other operatives

A former CIA officer accused of revving an electric drill near the head of an imprisoned terror suspect has returned to U.S. intelligence as a contractor, training CIA operatives after leaving the agency, The Associated Press has learned.

The CIA officer wielded the bitless drill and an unloaded handgun - unauthorized interrogation techniques - to menace suspected USS Cole bombing plotter Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri inside a secret CIA prison in Poland in late 2002 and early 2003, according to several former intelligence officials and a review by the CIA's inspector general.

After leaving the CIA, Albert returned at some point as a contractor, training CIA officers at a facility in northern Virginia to handle different scenarios they might face in the field, according to former officials. Albert hasn't been involved in training CIA employees for at least two years, but a current U.S. official says he continues to work as an intelligence contractor.


Great, just what we need, to train more CIA operators to commit torture in the name of "joe citizen". Some of the ways that torture was committed in the name of us Americans is just plain sick and demented. What kind of individual could do that to another? Well, the kind that we have running the whole show, I might remind you.

Some people may argue that we should be torturing terrorists because it if saves American lives then who cares? Right??? I'm sure that the Russians felt the same way about KGB torture. I'm sure that the Germans also felt the same way with the Gestapo and the Nazis.

Every time that torture is done in the name of Americans, it puts our brave young soldiers and even American citizens in danger of having the same things done to us if we are captured of kidnapped. This isn't even mentioning the fact that some of these "detainees" could be completely innocent. We already know that many of the detainees that were captured and imprisoned in Cuba were innocent and these are just the ones we know about, the "tip of the iceberg" if you will.

It's funny (or would be if it wasn't so tragic) that we can look down on the Nazis, Soviets, Iranians and North Koreans for torturing, yet some of us seem to justify it when it our own country does it. Not only is that ignorant, but it's also hypocritical. What makes our torture any better than there torture (suspected torture in some cases)? All of the justifications that ignorant or sadistic people can come up with for American induced torture, is the same excuses that justified the torture in the countries that we seem to condemn for that same reason.

We are supposed to have the moral high ground because if we don't, then we are no better than the entities we condemn and everything that we are doing, everything that we are sacrificing, will be in vein.
