I am not sure the liberal MSM is even aware of how silly it sounds sometimes. The left is all atwitter Bin Laden, Zarqawi and Zawahiri (OBL’s Deputy) have not been found. But in the same breathe they are concerned about torturing terrorists who kill people:
The CIA, accused of using harsh interrogation techniques to extract intelligence from detainees, does not engage in torture, agency Director Porter Goss said today. He said agents were working to penetrate terrorist sanctuaries and had made some headway in locating the leaders of al Qaeda.
“We know a great deal more about bin Laden, Zarqawi and [bin Laden aide Ayman] Zawahiri [than]
thenwe’re able to say publicly,” Goss said. He said the men had not been found “primarily because they don’t want us to find them and they’re going to great lengths to make sure we don’t find them.”
I mean, they cannot even use English (then/than) properly – but why is the left surprised we cannot penetrate the terrorist cells when all the liberals want to do is outfit every terrorist with a tax payer subsidized, high priced lawyer?
“We’re fighting a war on terror,” he said in response to a question about the prisons. “We’re doing quite well. Inevitably, we’re going to have to capture some terrorists and inevitably they’re going to have to have some due process. It’s going to be done lawfully.”
Hmm. My definition of ‘properly’ is a little more like the ‘aggressive negotiations’ of Star Wars and ”negotiating’ in The Fifth Element…
If they have something useful to say, they can get something useful in return – a speedy military trial.
