anyway, hit upon this little blurb of neo-tribalism that ought to jolt:firstly, how the hell does serwer know that the bush admin availed or did not avail themselves of all the "wrongs that the lawyers in their Office of Legal Counsel would have enabled"? It appears that they would have enabled anything asked. drill in the ass? drill baby drill! stomp some baby nuts? yaa buddy! now we know the CIA was using this program for human experimentation. it never fukking stops with them! hence all them vids that got themselves all blowed up: experimental data.
It's worth noting however, that the Bush administration did not take full advantage of the wrongs that the lawyers in their Office of Legal Counsel would have enabled. My point is not to equate the deeds of AQ with the deeds of the Bush administration--merely to point out justification for acts that are on their face unjustifiable take a similar intellectual path.
they were also quite awful, as one imagines, and when the shit hit the rim, well, the choice between "experimental data" and felony indictment became quite stark. a "no brainer," as they say. (It used to be the case that destroying evidence of a felony was a felony itself. Not for the CIA, it seems. 'magine that.) 'sides, the data can and will be recreated. probably is happening. like i said, they never stop.
but the real dipshit crap that yanks me askew is serwer's disastrous statement, one that exudes ritualistic, neo-triblistic American affirmation, the "My point is not to equate the deeds of AQ with the deeds of the Bush administration."
and why the fuck not, actually?
because such a task is, in fact, quite impossible.
given the broad swath illegality, mahem and death toll, one cannot possibly equate the "deeds" of the bush regime with "the deeds of AQ." how may one possibly equate with the "deeds of AQ" with illegal wars and hated occupations in two Muslim countries, illegal robot terror wars in at least three others, illegal surveillance, a global kidnapping ring, a global torture network, massive public indoctrination -- a generation of war and death?
trump that, "AQ."
