WH CIA Interrogations Document ‘Accidentally Emailed’ to AP Potentially Exonerates Powell

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 11:49 pm

Gosh, how could this have happened?

Tonight at the Associated Press, aka the Administration’s Press, a dispatch by Ken Dilanian and Eileen Sullivan reports that “a document circulating among White House staff” about post-9/11 allegedly harsh and inhumane CIA interrogation techniques — a document which was “accidentally emailed to an Associated Press reporter” — claims that Former Secretary of State Colin Powell “may not have been informed when the techniques were first used in 2002.” Given the wire service’s unrequited lapdog love for all things Obama, it seems more likely, as posited by Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds, that the “AP reporter” in question is on the regular circulation list and was told to call this particular leak an accident. Excerpts follow the jump (bolds are mine):

Your tax dollars at work destroying society from within — “Another Planned Parenthood Caught Promoting X-Rated Advice to Underage Girls.” The “advice” in the undercover video shot at a Planned Parenthood facility in Oregon includes “an undercover investigator, posing as a 15-year-old girl,” told about sexual game activities “including being hit, whipped, or tied to a tree, role-playing ‘the baby thing’ with her partner, (and) using handcuffs …”

It’s the third video in a series showing Planned Parenthood providing “Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids.”

The first video introduced viewers to the fact that Planned Parenthood, which “receives $500 million in taxpayer funding every year,” has produced videos and other materials promoting dehumanizing “BDSM” sexual practices. It shows an undercover person visiting the org’s Indianapolis, Indiana facility and getting “advice” on these and other matters of “kink.”

The second included “advice” on “how to experiment with sexual bondage/sadomasochism, including gagging, whipping, defecation, emulating pornography, and going to sex stores to ‘get educated.’ Footage was obtained by Live Action at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Littleton and Lakewood, Colorado.”

Even more videos may be on the way.

The bigger picture — It might interest people to know that one of the defining characteristics of the disastrous failure known as Weimar Germany (1919-1933) was a deep descent into sexual decadence and depravity. Planned Parenthood’s open promotion of these things is a strong indicator that a far from insignificant portion of our society is already there.

Does anyone remember what followed the Weimar Republic in Germany?
