CIA Confirms: Waterboarding 9/11 Mastermind Led to Info that Aborted 9/11-Style Attack on Los Angeles

-The Central Intelligence Agency told CNSNews.com today that it stands by the assertion made in a May 30, 2005 Justice Department memo that the use of “enhanced techniques” of interrogation on al Qaeda leader Khalid Sheik Mohammed (KSM) -- including the use of waterboarding -- caused KSM to reveal information that allowed the U.S. government to thwart a planned attack on Los Angeles.

  • That smug-ass soon you will know probably came with a big smirky smile too.
    "Soon will know"="Please start pulling out my toe-nails now!".
    To all nay-sayers here,I have a question for you.
    How far would you go to stop it,if someone told you that your children will soon die?
    I don't think a "pretty please tell me" would get the job done.
    I really would like to hear what measure you would take to protect your family. Thanks for any response.

    You're way off dip-shit. That kind of shit-talking could get you hurt in my circle...grow a f**cking brain.

    • Another genius riding Cheney's jock, you are. You know, those fuking vice presidents are just so out of control with their policy making aren't they. Just horrible. Cheney's lasting legacy will be of shooting someone with bird shot in a field in Texas. He had nothing to do with setting policy. VPs are along for the ride. Get out your history 101 textbook.
