Obama on CIA's post-9/11 tactics: 'We tortured some folks'

August 1, 2014 by legitgov

Obama on CIA's post-9/11 tactics: 'We tortured some folks' 01 Aug 2014 President Barack Obama made a rare acknowledgment during a Friday press briefing concerning the United States past use of enhanced interrogation tactics in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. "In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did things that were contrary to our values," Pres. Obama said near the end of a nearly hour-long press briefing at the White House in Washington, DC. [Right, Obama cut a deal to pardon key war criminals in the Bush regime, in exchange for keeping most of Bush's polices to benefit Wall Street. This was accomplished by ensuring the filibuster rule didn't change in the Senate, so the GOP could easily block any and all progressive legislation. --LRP]
