This bit of political theatrics was mouthed on the floor of the US Senate Tuesday by Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, immediately following the release by her committee of 524 pages of a 6,700 page "report" demonizing the CIA.
The report was five years in the writing – apparently the time it took for Senator Feinstein's staff to select the data they needed to support their foregone conclusions. It was compiled without benefit of interviewing even one CIA agent or senior officer. Clearly, the content and timing of this "news dump" was a political maneuver, intended to paint former President Bush – and by association all Republicans – as heartless, torturing monsters weeks before they take over the Senate.
But let's take a look at the content of Senator Feinstein's Tuesday tirade on the Senate floor. She speaks of "commitment to a just society." Really Senatror?
In 2009, you were caught introducing a bill that would have directed 25 billion dollars to the FDIC barely one day after your husband had concluded a contract with the FDIC to sell foreclosed properties at higher rates than the industry standard. You have also been caught using your position in the Senate to award billions of dollars in defense contracts to your husband's company. A just society, Senator? How do you define just?
And your ridiculous posturing about a "society governed by law" would be more convincing if you had not been at the forefront of efforts to destroy the most important law of the land, the Second Article of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the United States.
The Second Article of the Bill of Rights is the most important law we have, Senator, because without it, the whole Constitution is useless. The very validity of the Constitution hinges on the peopole's ability to protect it from the government.
Senator, you are either deliberately lying or you are blissfully unawae of the meaning of the word law.
And the phrase "the willingness to face an ugly truth" is an obvious attempt to imbue the highly questionable and malodorous disinformation dump perpetrated by your lackies with the aroma of veracity.
'Sorry, Senator, but the only thing in your outburst that makes any sense at all is "never again." Never again will we sadle the United States with a disasterously incompetent and dangerously opinionated Senator such as you. But, since you are from California, even that is a lie.
