you've gotta love Big Dick's default response... i bet he was squawking it before he even heard the particulars of what was released.... "don't talk about it! secrets keep us safe!" <various mutterings and penguins sounds> "meh" CIA terror tactics spur changes, new probe - Yahoo! News A newly declassified version of a CIA report revealed Monday that CIA interrogators once threatened to kill a Sept. 11 suspect's children and suggested another would be forced to watch his mother sexually assaulted. The fresh crop of damaging revelations only intensified the long-running political fight about the secret interrogation program â€” whether it protected the United States then, and whether spilling its secrets now will weaken the nation's future security. Top Republican senators said they were troubled by Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to begin a new criminal probe, which they said could hamper U.S. intelligence efforts. And former Vice President Dick Cheney told The Weekly Standard, a conservative journal, that the decision "serves as a reminder, if any were needed, of why so many Americans have doubts about this administration's ability to be responsible for our nation's security." On the other side, Sen. Patrick Leahy, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the revelations showed the Bush administration went down a "dark road of excusing torture."
