Meanwhile you'll keep stomping your little feet,banging your head against the wall,hoping and praying that one of the wild goose chases that Drudge or Breitbart send you on will actually amount to something.

For the rest of us it's a never ending source of amusement.

It's a shame you can't prove that nonsense, you have absolutely nothing to back that up...and keep those blinders on with your head in the sand, it looks good.

I don't need to prove that "nonsense".
NBC and Politicsusa did it for me, no matter how badly you try to ignore it.

CIA chief: Waterboarding aided bin Laden raid

WASHINGTON — Intelligence garnered from waterboarded detainees was used to track down al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and kill him, CIA Chief Leon Panetta told NBC News on Tuesday.
“Enhanced interrogation techniques” were used to extract information that led to the mission’s success, Panetta said during an interview with anchor Brian Williams. Those techniques included waterboarding, he acknowledged.


http://www.politicususa.com/panetta-oliterates-torture-led-bin-laden-myth.html

He went on to say the following: ”Yes, some of it came from some of the tactics that were used at that time, interrogation tactics that were used,” he admitted.

Jim Hoft Flat Out Lies About Panetta and “Waterboarding,” Gets a Drudge Link
Quote :
Dishonesty rewarded by wingnut welfare

The Dumbest Man on the Internet resorts to a flat out lie today, and is rewarded with a headline link at Drudge Report: Defense Secretary Panetta Admits Information From Waterboarding Led US to Bin Laden (Video) | the Gateway Pundit.

Quote :
Yes, waterboarding worked.
Today on Meet the Press Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta admitted that information gleaned from waterboarded detainees was used to track down al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and kill him.

“The real story was that in order to put the puzzle of intelligence together that led us to Bin Laden, there were a lot of pieces out there that were a part of that puzzle. Yes, some of it came from some of the tactics that were used at that time, interrogation tactics that were used. But the fact is we put together most of that intelligence without having to resort to that.”

Jim Hoft is such an amazing dimwit that he actually includes the quote that exposes his own brazen lies.

First, Panetta did not even use the word “waterboarding,” and he certainly did not say that information from waterboarding “led to bin Laden.” Hoft simply made that up out of nothing. Panetta specifically said that most of the intelligence that led to bin Laden was put together without using torture.

Second, Panetta’s very next sentence, after the section that Hoft clipped for his misleading video, was:

Quote :
I think we could have gotten bin Laden without that.

This is an absolutely blatant, in your face example of how the right wing blogs tell each other lies, circulate them, and turn them into unquestionable articles of faith. It’s a microcosm of the reality-denying reactionary sickness at the heart of the conservative movement.

Here’s the clip from NBC of Panetta’s actual statement, including the critical sentence that Hoft edited out.

The relevant quote in question was posted at both NBC and Gateway Pundit, and if I kept poking around, I would undoubtedly find the very same quote at some other sources as well. What the hell is your point?

So it was just a coincidence that it was the headline story on Drudge at exactly the time you posted it? Rolling Eyes Then you want to claim that you found it somewhere else? Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Your claim might be feasible but unfortunately you were too stupid to remember that less than 30 minutes after you posted it you pretty much admitted that you got it from Drudge. It wasn't until later that you came up with the story that you got it from somewhere else.

Hollywood Snubs Best Film as ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Odds Fade

By Michael White - Feb 17, 2013 12:32 AM CT

“Zero Dark Thirty,” the best-reviewed film of 2012, has become an Oscar longshot because of a political backlash in Hollywood over its depiction of torture in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
Since early January, Kathryn Bigelow’s critically praised movie has sunk to fifth from third among likely best-picture winners at GoldDerby.com, which ranks award prospects. Actors Ed Asner and David Clennon urged academy voters to snub the Sony Corp. film. Author Naomi Wolf called Bigelow “torture’s handmaiden” and compared her to Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl.
Jessica Chastain plays a member of the elite team of spies and military operatives stationed in a covert base overseas in "Zero Dark Thirty." The Columbia Pictures film opened Dec. 19.

The outcry from Washington and influential industry voices has made “Zero Dark Thirty” a tough vote for left-leaning Hollywood. It’s led to a split between academy members disturbed by torture scenes that imply waterboarding and other harsh methods worked, and others who defend the filmmakers’ right to free speech and artistic freedom.
“The general political persuasion in Hollywood has more to do with it than any particular actors,” said former Republican U.S Senator Fred Thompson, who’s appeared in dozens of films and TV shows including “Law & Order.” “If they perceive that this movie somehow adopts the Bush narrative, that could affect the movie.”
Over eight days in December, “Zero Dark Thirty” was dubbed best picture by four groups, including the New York Film Critics Association, the National Board of Review and the Boston Film Critics Association. It was the top Oscar contender on the Metacritic site, which ranks films based on reviews.

Senate Questions

Then the U.K.’s Guardian published an article accusing Bigelow, the only woman to win an Oscar for directing, of justifying torture. On Dec. 19, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, joined by John McCain and Carl Levin, asked Sony Pictures to consider “correcting” the suggestion torture helped the CIA find bin Laden because it was inaccurate.

Finally saw Zero Dark Thirty today.
One of the more compelling characters was the one based on the interrogator who used the enhanced interrogation techniques, the ones Panetta admitted were essential to the mission.

Tune in next week when Happy reviews "Argo", and declares the character,Lester Siegel,portrayed by Alan Arkin, as "compelling".
The major role of producer Lester Siegel, played by Alan Arkin, is fictional.

The definition of "character" in the context of this discussion pertains to a "character" in a movie.
You full well know that, and I full well know that.

Yes, I know.
I find it interesting that a fictional character in the movie who tortures people, evokes your interest, attention, and admiration in a powerfully irresistible way.

Actually, I think it kind of twisted and weird that you would single out the fictional character in the movie who tortures people.

Allow me to point something out to you that you either missed or are deliberately lying about.
The definition reads:


1. Evoking interest, attention, or admiration in a powerfully irresistible way.

The definition does not read as you wrote it in your post:

2. Evoking interest, attention, and admiration in a powerfully irresistible way.

There is a very big difference. It’s possible that even you are smart enough to recognize that fact, although perhaps not honest enough to acknowledge it.
