Adm. Dennis Blair: FAIL

Guh. Apparently, Obama’s national intelligence director is not all that smart. Adm. Dennis Blair wrote in a memo last week — on the very same day that Obama made public for the first time the Bush “torture memos” — that harsh interrogation techniques (I’m pretty sure Blair was talking about, um, torture) actually yielded results!?

“The information gained from these techniques was valuable in some instances, but there is no way of knowing whether the same information could have been obtained through other means,” Admiral Blair said in a written statement issued last night. “The bottom line is these techniques have hurt our image around the world, the damage they have done to our interests far outweighed whatever benefit they gave us and they are not essential to our national security.”

“Hurt our image around the world?” Well, yes, obviously. Second only to Ayman al-Zawahiri, George W. Bush did more to radicalize Islamists during the last decade, because he was such a stupid, despicable man, but it seems that Blair has forgotten the simple fact about torture: it’s a morally bankrupt and evil thing to do on any level.

Beyond Adm. Blair’s inability to speak intelligently about the subject, and his inability to sufficiently cover his ass, let’s now look to the fact that he put his idiotic statements in writing in a goddammed memo. Did someone not tell this guy about leaks? What the shit was this guy thinking?

  1. You’re right these guys are despicable. They didn’t even bother saying “pretty please” when trying to get info from terrorists bent on killing American civilians. They went right to pouring water on their faces… I mean, ah, torturing them.

    • Ahhh. You’ve shown a complex understanding of human dignity here my friend. It’s not about being nice to the terrorists, you sucker. It’s about being dignified, being the best during the worst of times. As a purported Catholic, you should understand the dignity of life better.

      Oh, and any time you want me to torture you, uh, I mean pouring water on your face, just let me know.

  2. Um, how do we even know all these guys are terrs?

  3. Well because they’re Muslims obviously.
