If there were any real terrorists, Jose Rodriguez would be dead.
Who is Jose Rodriguez? He is the criminal who ran the CIA torture
program. Most of his victims were not terrorists or even insurgents.
Most were hapless individuals kidnapped by warlords and sold to the
Americans as “terrorists” for the bounty paid.
If Rodriguez’s identity was previously a secret, it is no more. He has
been on CBS “60 Minutes” taking credit for torturing Muslims and using
the information allegedly gained to kill leaders of al Qaeda. If
terrorists were really the problem that Homeland Security, the FBI and
CIA claim, Rodriguez’s name would be a struck through item on the
terrorists’ hit list. He would be in his grave.
So, also, would be John Yoo, who wrote the Justice (sic) Department
memos giving the green light to torture, despite US and International
laws prohibiting torture. Apparently, Yoo, a professor at the Boalt
School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, was ignorant of
US and international law. And so was the US Department of Justice
Notice that Rodriguez, “The Torturer of the Muslims,” doesn’t have to
hide. He can go on national television, reveal his identity, and revel
in his success in torturing and murdering Muslims. Rodriguez has no
Secret Service protection and would be an easy mark for assassination by
terrorists so capable as to have, allegedly, pulled off 9/11.
Another easy mark for assassination would be former Secretary of Defense
Donald Rumsfeld, who staffed up the Pentagon with neoconservative
warmongers such as Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith, who in turn
concocted the false information used to justify the invasions of Iraq
and Afghanistan. Rumsfeld himself declared members of al Qaeda to be the
most vicious and dangerous killers on earth. Yet Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz,
Feith, Richard Perle, together with neoconservative media propagandists,
such as William Kristol and Max Boot, have been walking around safe for
years unmolested by terrorists seeking revenge or bringing retribution
to those responsible for as many as 1,000,000 Muslim deaths.
Condi Rice, Colin Powell, who delivered the Speech of Lies to the UN
inaugurating the invasion of Iraq, and Dick Cheney, whose minimal Secret
Service protection could not withstand a determined assassination
attempt, also enjoy lives unmolested by terrorists.
Remember the deck of cards that the Bush regime had with Iraqi faces?
If terrorists had a similar deck, all of those named above would be
“high value targets.” Yet, there has not been a single attempt on any
one of them.
Strange, isn’t it, that none of the above are faced with a terrorist
threat. Yet, the tough, macho Navy Seals who allegedly killed Osama bin
Laden must have their identity kept hidden so that they don’t become
terrorist targets. These American supermen, highly trained killers
themselves, don’t dare show their faces, but Rodriguez, Rumsfeld, and
Condi Rice can walk around unmolested. Indeed, the Seals’ lives are so
endangered that President Obama gave up the enormous public relations
political benefit of a White House ceremony with the heroic Navy Seals.
Very strange behavior for a politician. A couple of weeks after the
alleged bin Laden killing, the Seals unit, or most of it, was wiped out
in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
