Now this could get to be fun: Claim: CIA Sent Prisoners Abroad to Be Boiled Alive and 'Raped with Broken Bottles'
- Former British ambassador alleges CIA relied on intelligence based on torture in prisons in Uzbekistan.
First off there is nothing really novel in the story. What will be interesting of course are all of the panicking TeaBaggers out there who may not know which is their current take on the tale. Since, well, as we all know, the TrueBelievers always supported All Torture, All The Time, Everywhere, or else someone might come into their office block, like they did in Orlando, and shoot people, and some of those people would be the wives and children of americans!!! So of course TrueBelievers supported the all Torture, all the time solution space, until the civilians put a civilian president in the white house, and the threat was that Uppity Ones would torture TrueBeleivers for the AARP Flying Saucer Konspirakii. Or worse Yet, for no reason at all, just randomly torturing americans as a part of the whole nationalized policy of all tortrue all the time taken, well, biblically litterally, and excluding ONLY those who had already been raptured. Which means that the folks still here suffering under the Obamanation, are, well, not the one's taken up to Jesus in the Rapture, so OF COURSE Jesus wants them tortured for their sin.
