Obama steps up to call Bush-era CIA Torture “Torture,” Despite Legal Implications

CNN points out that President Obama’s forthright condemnation of Bush administration-era CIA torture could cause legal problems for Agency employees, and that the Congressional report he was talking about avoided that diction. Obama doesn’t very often any more speak his mind, but in this case he clearly felt strongly enough about the betrayal of constitutional values to do so.

  1. I have to wonder what Obama’s real motivation was. Gross violations of the Constitution have not been a problem for him. Remember that he created the “right” of the US President to order the killing of anyone, anywhere , anytime, including US citizens without a shred of Due Process. Perhaps he was just sticking a thumb in the Republicans’ eye for all the impeachment and lawsuit nonsense.
