Subject: RE: BS: CIA torturers (God Bless America)
"A CIA field office cannot do this no cia agent would do this not because of morality but because they can be charged."
The idea that CIA agents simply outsourced all their torture requirements to third parties to avoid prosecution is dangerously naive. This organisation is unaccountable and operates beyond the law, and what counts for us simply doesn't count for them. CIA (and MI6) agents were directly involved in the torture and killing of people, some of them cases of mistaken identity who died lonely, terrifying deaths in squalid conditions (google the Salt Pit).
I could say more about the CIA from family experience, but in all honesty they scare the living fuck out of me.
By the way, the Gestapo perfected water boarding.
