The Obama administration is looking at possibly charging persons in connection with torture that was done by the CIA to obtain information to secure the U.S.
Obama's own intelligence director, Adm. Dennis C. Blai, admitted that, “High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qa’ida organization that was attacking this country.”
A memo was released about the torture, but the part about obtaining valuable information was deleted, I'm assuming in an attempt to make the Bush administration look bad. However it was revealed that one piece of information received due to waterboarding a suspect was a 9/11 type attack on Los Angeles. Since California leans heavily democrat, maybe the Bush administration should have conveniently forgot that particular information. Since CA is heavily Democrats, and since Democrats in congress and the president do not want terrorists possibly tortured for information, then maybe it should have been forgotten. However, the Bush administration took the information and used it to stop an LA attack. Dang!
