Dy’er Sez: This is simply ridiculous and not the least bit scary. By hiding behind the shield of ‘national security’ the CIA, in effect, has declared themselves free from any oversight by anyone.

And as for the President, I wonder what he is so afraid of in these proceedings which he keeps trying to block over and over again?

See folks, the rest of the world doesn’t hate us for our freedoms, they hate us for this kind of crap.

Obama’s Justice Department has refused to provide more documents. The Department had been instructed to release a presidential directive authorizing CIA “black sites” as well as CIA inspector general (IG) records and documents from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel regarding the CIA’s use of “enhanced interrogation techniques.”
