Marc Theissen (WH Speechwriter:Bush) rips Ammanpour ON CNN, and Phillipe Sands
Few know more about these CIA operations than Thiessen, and in his new book, Courting Disaster, he documents just how effective the CIA's interrogations were in foiling attacks on America, penetrating al-Qaeda's high command, and providing our military with actionable intelligence. Thiessen also shows how reckless President Obama has been in shutting down the CIA's program and releasing secret documents that have aided our enemies. Courting Disaster proves:
How the CIA program thwarted specific deadly attacks against the U.S.
Why "enhanced interrogation" was not torture by any reasonable legal or moral standard
How the information gained by "enhanced interrogation" could not have been acquired any other way
How President Obama's actions since taking office have left America much more vulnerable to attack
In chilling detail, Thiessen reveals how close the terrorists came to striking again, how intelligence gained from "enhanced interrogation" repeatedly stymied their plots, and how President Obama's dismantling of this CIA program is inviting disaster for America. from NRO
Here he is with Ammanpour, and and Phillips Sands author of Torture Team.
Never have the issues been so sharply drawn, and more still, never has it been more obvious that there are some Americans who are ready to see Americans die, in a civilization become too civilized to survive, and therefore pass on it's way of living as a valuable contribution to the development of humanity.
Here is what Thiessen said of this in NRO:
Yesterday, I went on CNN's Amanpour to debate Phillpe Sands, author of the book Torture Team.
During the interview, I confronted Amanpour with some of her misstatements about the CIA's treatment of terrorist detainees. She was none too happy.
It aired yesterday (WEDS) on CNN International, and will air domestically on Sunday.
And for a fun update..here is Liz Cheney vs Nora O'Donnell on NBC on a similar vein.
