Fmr. CIA lawyer: We tortured

In a brand new book, John Rizzo, a former lawyer for the CIA, says the agency was so worried about another attack after 9/11, that they resorted to torture techniques - and out of that fear, he did nothing to stop it. CNN's Brian Todd reports.

    The guilty of torturing need to be punished indicted and sentenced, regardless of their reasoning behind it. We wouldn't have had the first 9/11 if it weren't for Bush,Cheney and Big Oil and the excuses for torture this fellow presents are thin and lame. 9/11 was an inside job and these people chiming in on the BS as to why the broke laws are just more of the cover up. The Evil forces got many things they wanted because of 9/11,spying on patriotic American, getting rid of Saudis Arabia's main Oil competitor (Iraq), Haliburton repayment for Hiring an Old Man with a bad heart on faith for 40 plus million a year, prior to his becoming VP. When calculating the odds on the Bush 2 to Presidency, with the events that followed that and 9/11, it becomes clear as day and night that 9/11was enabled by the powers that were imposed upon us. There was a lot of money at stake and that is why people sell their souls, gasoline went from under a dollar a gallon before Bush 2, to over 4 dollars a gallon during Bush. And that is only one of their motives. Torture and Retention we used not to extract information but to scare Americans from coming forth with their suspicious beliefs of the inside job. The NSA's primary targets to be spied on during the Bush 2 Administration, were the people that were suspecting the Bush Administration's complicitness in the inside job. Now we learned they tortured, further down the road you will learn that the only thing that adds up, are the Odds. 9/11 was partially, if not fully and inside job. The courageous that have tried to point this out since nearly the beginning, I applaud your judgement.
