I don’t believe what I’m reading.
Who’s side are these people on anyway ?
WASHINGTON (AP) – FBI Director Robert Mueller on Monday raised significant concerns about requiring military custody for captured suspected terrorists, arguing that the divisive provision in a sweeping defense bill could harm ongoing terrorism investigations.
In a letter to lawmakers, Mueller detailed his concerns with the provision that mandates military custody of a suspect deemed to be a member of al-Qaida or its affiliates and involved in plotting or committing attacks on the United States. The White House has threatened a veto over the language in the bill and limits on the administration’s ability to transfer suspected terrorists.
“The legislation … will inhibit our ability to convince covered arrestees to cooperate immediately, and provide critical intelligence,” Mueller said. “These limited exceptions … fail to recognize the reality of a counterterrorism investigation,” Mueller wrote. “Building rapport with, and convincing a covered individual to cooperate once arrested, is a delicate and time-sensitive skill that transcends any one interrogation session.”
In an op-ed Monday in The Washington Post, Armed Services Chairman Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and the panel’s top Republican, Arizona’s John McCain, wrote that the bill’s provisions on detainees “represent a careful, bipartisan effort to provide the executive branch the clear authority, tools and flexibility of action it needs to defend us against the threat posed by al-Qaida.”
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, in a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the head of the Intelligence committee, has said the limits in the bill “could deny our nation the ability to respond flexibly and appropriately to unfolding events, including the capture of terrorism suspects.”
You don’t go about “building rapport with, and convincing a covered individual to cooperate once arrested……”
You pump ’em full of juice and get whatever you can out of the scumbags, then put rounds in their heads, stuff their mouths with bacon and send ’em back to whatever peace-loving hell-hole from whence they came.
