Now they tell us …

CIA Chief Leon Panetta:

The phrase “war on terror,” a hallmark of President George W. Bush’s White House, is rarely used in the Obama administration, but Panetta that “there’s no question this is a war.”

… “There are those who threaten us to come here and kill Americans. … CIA is engaged on the front lines to try to develop the intelligence necessary to make sure that that doesn’t happen.”


Attorney General Eric Holder
:

Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday the Guantanamo detention center is a well-run, professional facility that will be difficult to close — but he is still going to do it.

Holder visited the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Monday and spoke to reporters about his trip during a news conference Wednesday.

[...]

Holder said his visit to the site was instructive. He met with military officials and toured the facilities, including the court setting where military commissions were to be held until Obama suspended them.

He said he did not witness any rough treatment of detainees, and in fact found the military staff and leadership performing admirably.

“I did not witness any mistreatment of prisoners. I think, to the contrary, what I saw was a very conscious attempt by these guards to conduct themselves in an appropriate way,” he said.

No wonder the Obama Administration is in such a dizzy state these days. Look at all the 180′s they’ve been doing lately.

    After 4+ years of Doublespeak, we’re going to be a dazed and confused nation.

    “My President has already stopped the torture and bombing of civilians that you have been doing the last 8 years.”

    Hey “Justice”, ya gotta lay off the weed before you post. “Your President” did not outlaw the use of “torture”. As for “bombing civilians”, I guess those predator strikes in Pakistan don’t count, huh?

    At least try to sound intelligent.

  • irongrampa

    Think you set the bar too high, GarandFan.

  • Bruce Henry

    I could be wrong, but I believe this “justice69″ person is someone doing an impersonation of “justice58″ who posts here sometimes.

    Not exaggerated by much, it’s a good way to get you conservatives all hopped up, neck veins bulging, faces reddening, spittle starting to fly a little.

    I think you got punk’d, Mr GarandFan.

  • GarandFan

    “…it’s a good way to get you conservatives all hopped up, neck veins bulging, faces reddening, spittle starting to fly a little.”

    Actually it tends to elicit a sigh and a shake of the head to realize that stupidity knows no limit to it’s depths. My blood pressure and composure are fine, thank you.

    :o)

  • Bruce Henry

    Yeah, well, you still got punk’d.
    At least I THINK justice69 is a joke.

  • ExSubNuke

    Oh no. Justice69 IS a joke… not sure if it’s intentional or not, is all.

  • max

    Both Justice59 and Justice69 are certainly mocking Justice58. They’re not even very good at it.

    But, of course, they were good enough to suck in GarandFan. And apparently, ExSubNuke as well.

  • Justice69

    Who are you calling a joke Bruce? Between you and max with his sucking expertise it’s like a rethiglican politician convention at a boys camp.

  • WildWillie

    Whoever it is makes as much sense as the aforementioned.

    Of course GW said for years we do not torture the detainees, but now that Holder and Barry say it, well, it’s acceptable. ww

    Does it really matter whether it’s the “real” j58 or an idiotic poser/sockpuppet?

    Either way they are one of two things, liars, or willfully ignorant.

    January 23, 2009:

    President Obama ‘orders Pakistan drone attacks’ Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.

    January 25, 2009

    PAKISTAN received an early warning of what the era of “smart power” under President Barack Obama will look like after two remote-controlled US airstrikes killed 22 people at suspected terrorist hideouts in the border area of Waziristan.

    The airstrikes were authorised under a covert programme approved by Obama, according to a senior US official. It was a dramatic signal in the president’s first week of office that there will be no respite in the hunt for Al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders.

    To which I’ll add only half sarcastically… Chickenhawk, Warmonger!!!

  • GarandFan

    Watch it Marc, that’s a good way to get liberals all hopped up, neck veins bulging, faces reddening, spittle starting to fly a little. To paraphrase someone else.

    Apparently not to you, and it’s good to know you’ll spend time responding to people who are inventing ridiculous arguments just to make fun of another commenter. Oh the hours we could get you to waste…

  • Bruce Henry

    Hey, I’m not the one who fell for such an easy to spot ruse. Don’t be hatin’.

    Didn’t have a bit of trouble grabbing onto the “lawyer marc” horseshit floating around did you?

    Hey, I’ll take any opportunity to make fun of Justice58. Sure, it’s easy. Yeah, it’s cheap. But it’s still kinda fun.

  • Bruce Henry

    Got me there, Marc. Since you never said (that I saw) that you weren’t in fact a lawyer, I assumed you were.

    That’s almost as stupid as not noticing that “69″ is not “58.”

  • retired military

    “That’s almost as stupid as not noticing that “69″ is not “58.”

    A distinction very noticeable to prostitutes.

  • Bruce Henry

    Word.

    bh – “Got me there, Marc. Since you never said (that I saw) that you weren’t in fact a lawyer, I assumed you were.”

    To put a spin of reality on that…

    Because I didn’t refute something made out of thin air by someone who “thought” they were being cute, snide, or just a plain old fashioned asshole you assumed it as fact.

    I see a problem there, you on the other hand, well for the sake of remaining civil, I’ll let others fill in that blank.

  • mantis

    Don’t worry, Soros has my bills covered.

  • Bruce Henry

    To put another spin of reality on it…

    Because I’ve seen SEVERAL commenters, for several months, call you “lawyer marc,” and I’ve never once seen you say, “Hey, I’m not a freaking lawyer so quit saying that!” I assumed you were.

    Little writing tip: The quotes around “thought” weren’t necessary.

    And, whatever you do for a living, dude, you got punk’d.

  • http://fullthrottle.cranialcavity.net/ marc

    mantis – “Don’t worry, Soros has my bills covered.”

    At least now we all know who your official insignificant other is.

  • Brian

    Knowing that marc is not actually a lawyer restores some of my respect for the legal profession.

  • WildWillie

    Brucy is the lefty trolls unofficial moderator, grammar and spelling police. ww

    bh – “Because I’ve seen SEVERAL commenters, for several months, call you “lawyer marc,” and I’ve never once seen you say, “Hey, I’m not a freaking lawyer so quit saying that!” I assumed you were.”

    More like two months but if expansion of the lie to several months works for you feel free.

    Not to mention those “several commentors” (JFO and pea[brain]3000 to name a couple) are in an exclusive club here that do nothing but toss invective around like M&M’s and if an argument is offered in a post it, in the vast majority of cases, contains more excrement than 40 acres populated by animals of the bovine variety.

    As for your so called writing tips, the quote marks were indeed necessary considering they referred to individuals whose thought process wouldn’t fill-up a thimble.

    Me punk’d? That means the next the thing to zero coming from someone who assumed something and ran with it.

    Enjoy your wholly unearned self-esteem, dude. Your ability to split hairs is envied by Bill Clinton.

  • Justice58

    Thanks Max, Bruce Henry for setting the record straight about the effed up imposter! I just happened to click on this thread and GarandFan has made the thread about me!

    Just SMGDH!

    bh – “Enjoy your wholly unearned self-esteem, dude. Your ability to split hairs is envied by Bill Clinton.

    My alleged hair splitting prowess is far exceeded by your ability to make assumptions based on what a few numb skulls have posted.

    The fact you latched onto their zaniness without a moments hesitation or thought about who posted it says a lot.

    j58 – Where’s my Secret Service visit?

    No email from them, no text, no phone call. Nothing.

    Funny, you seem to have let your keyboard, in lieu of your mouth, write a check your ass can’t or won’t cash.

    Asswipe.

    Regarding the Post’s Topic: In Marching Band we had the greatest fun using the Right Spin (turning 270 degrees to the left to go right). Yes, it did challenge the vestibular system. But it looked cool if you didn’t land on your face. Sounds like the current administration is really a High School Marching Band. Cool. Can’t wait until half-time is over.
