Delicious, yummy, tasty irony

It appears that information obtained from Khalid Sheik Mohammed (not to be confused with Rosie O’Donnell) during a “harsh interrogation” (a/k/a torture) session that included waterboarding, led directly to bin Laden’s capture.

It’s obvious, therefore, that bin Laden’s capture is Bush’s fault.

Officials say CIA interrogators in secret overseas prisons developed the first strands of information that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Current and former U.S. officials say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, provided the nom de guerre of one of bin Laden’s most trusted aides. The CIA got similar information from Mohammed’s successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi. Both were subjected to harsh interrogation tactics inside CIA prisons in Poland and Romania.

The news is sure to reignite debate over whether the now-closed interrogation and detention program was successful. Former president George W. Bush authorized the CIA to use the harshest interrogation tactics in U.S. history. President Barack Obama closed the prison system.

Here’s more from Ace:

So apparently Obama and the left like to campaign hard on naivete in order to make partisan attacks on a Republican President, but they will gladly take the information they themselves opposed procuring and then claim credit for the fruit of that information.

Let Me Say Something About Bush and Cheney: For the last four years, they have known they broke KSM and this other high value target and got the names of Osama’s couriers.

They have only stated elliptically, without specifics, that “important information was learned.”

They were called liars every time they said this.

At any time, they could have exposed their critics as the anti-American, terrorist-coddling hyperpartisans they were, by revealing this crown jewel of American intelligence.

But they didn’t.

They allowed their names to be slurred on a daily basis in order to preserve the secret. To allow Obama to capitalize on the information they procured.

Well.

The secret is out now.

It’s time for credit to be taken and apologies to be granted — or apologies to be forced and shamed out of people.

  1. Rush was hilarious on this today. And some news sources reported what he said by taking literally what he was being funny about. That was also delicious and yummy irony.
