it also says *UNNAMED* so its easy to accuse someone in high rank as well..
another media fed garbage.
You got the last part right.
The NYT is IMHO so involved in the political process at this point that they are lashing out an anyone for possibly disagreeing with their (and, their party's
) views on America, the war, and especially this administration. Which is why when things are going well, it is not reported. When they go badly, it runs, unless their favorite people are involved.
Take them with a grain of salt. If the NY Times says a country is a "51st state" it is because THEY hate that country, just for being pro American when their favorite party isn't in the White House. There are movies, and all sorts of articles all already assuming the rumors of torture are true, however none of the rumors have been to my knowledge substantiated. A man (with HUGE media coverage) claiming he was captured by CIA, taken all over the place and tortured, then released.....
Doesn't ring true to me. CIA aren't in the business of announcing who they are, after all, and if so many illegal things were supposedly done to him at the hands of CIA or American officials, why not just add one more illegal act and kill the wind bag if it were true?
I think it's a lot of wash, and not only do I seriously doubt the veracity of the "victim" from what little I've seen, but also doubt Poland (or a few of the other countries "indicated") actually would have anything to do with torture either.
Now, if the man is saying someone raised their voice at him, or threatened him? Grow a thicker skin, such is not torture. Still these days if a man flies on an airline to Poland and thinks the airline food is bad, the NY Times will say he was tortured and that the CIA did it and that Poland offered to host the party.
The NY Times is still in the business of stirring up contempt for Americans, thinking it will be directed only at the Republican party. Some of them are so full of themselves they wouldn't know a real news story if it hit them in the side of the head. One could probably find better, more accurate news in a comic book.
So, again, don't let what a NY Times writer says get you down. It isn't what Americans think, but what one bitter person with no life beyond his indoctrination in journalism school, and probably lives a lonely life in front of a computer screen hashing through the thoughts of his favorite celebrities in Hollywood. Like they REALLY have any idea what is good for the country or what real life is about.Generally, anyway.
Sorry for the ramble again...
Just my opinion, of course.
