Democrats charged Tuesday that the CIA has released documents about congressional briefings on harsh interrogation techniques in order to deflect attention and blame away from itself.
“I think there is so much embarrassment in some quarters that people are going to try to shift some of the responsibility to others — that’s what I think,” said Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), who sat on the Senate Intelligence Committee and was briefed on interrogation techniques five times between 2006 and 2007.
Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, said he finds it “interesting” that a document detailing congressional briefings was released just as “some of the groups that have been responsible for these interrogation techniques were taking the most criticism.”
I know I've covered this before but these words from Shakespeare keep coming to mind every time I hear these Dems talk about the whole torture issue, "Me thinkst thou does protest to loudly."
Let's see, you heard about the torture then but decided not to speak out and say stop this is inhumane then. Now that Obama is in office and your far left is screaming for vengeance now you are screaming "Torture is always wrong."
It either was or it wasn't. If it was then you should have had the courage to speak out then. If it isn't then are you only screaming now because George Soros and Moveon.com is in the driver's seat? Or is this a John Kerry moment for Pelosi, Levin, and other Dems when they were for waterboarding and torture before they were against it. I thought Dems hated duplicity. Seems like they are no stranger to that concept.
