Just as the crickets keep chirping in the MSM and locally here regarding the insanely preposterous 180s in which our president keeps engaging, Boss Obama minions keep falling in line by either outright contradicting themselves, or by outright lying. First we see gun grabber Diane Feinstein laughingly claiming that due to US drone strikes, "the number of civilian casualties from drones strikes 'each year has typically been in the single digits.'” Uh, yeah. Riiiiiight. And gas prices have fallen to a $1.50/gallon. A studey by Columbia University estimates that upwards of 155 civilians were killed in 2011 alone.
Elsewhere, John Brennan, Boss Obama's nominee to head the CIA, said in testimony the other day that
... waterboarding is “reprehensible” and “never should’ve taken place in my view." "As far as I’m concerned, waterboarding is something that never should’ve been employed,” Brennan told Senator Carl Levin, “and, as far I’m concerned, never will be if I have anything to do with it.”
Except that, y'know, he said just the opposite back in 2007:
... the practice was a useful means of gathering intelligence, but that it saved American lives. “There has been a lot of information that has come out from these interrogation procedures that the agency has, in fact, used against the real hard-core terrorists,” Brennan said. “It has saved lives.”
Wow. What's next? Obama stating that WMDs really were in Iraq? At this rate I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.Posted by Hube at February 8, 2013 11:14 AM | TrackBack
