I'm waiting to see the report!

US acknowledges torture at Guantanamo and Iraq, Afghanistan: UN source

Hat tip Captains Quarters Blog!

Ok, I'm getting deluged by email saying, "See you right-wing facist! They admit it! There is torture going on!"

Not so fast.

I have no doubt that the US a report to the UN. However, I do have a doubt of what the "anonymous" UN inspector is telling the press that report contains.

By the way? Why is he telling anyone, especially the press?

After all they were squalking about the US not cooperating. So now that they get a report they run to media to shout, "See, See, they admit it!".

I'm going to wait to see that report for myself. Are these "tortures and abuses" already known instances (past tense) or happening right now (future tense). We know nothing from this story. In fact there is no reason to release it if details (and a source) are not available.

Now I'm NOT defending anyone who committed any act of abuse or even torture. But the military is good with this stuff - I know, I spent 13 years with them. They will find the culprits and punish them accordingly. Incidently, they don't need AP or any other media outlet to call these things to their attention. Abu Grab was in in-progress investigation BEFORE photos appeared on CBS.

So let's see what the report contains.

Right now - considering the track record of the UN on human rights (Sudan for example) and the fact that most of these inspectors come from countries with human rights abuse issues of their own - makes me even more suspicious of anything they say until I can verify it.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
