Hypocrisy: WH Security Adviser Tom Donilon Cannot Explain the Difference Between Waterboarding & Shooting Bin Laden in the Eye
Once again the Barack Obama White House is having a communication issue … they cannot explain to the American people how “waterboarding” a terrorist is worse that shooting a terrorist in the head. The obvious answer is, it is not. The Obama administration knows it has a problem when they just can’t answer a simple question.
Watch the VIDEO below courtesy of the Gateway Pundit of White House Security adviser Tom Donilon on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace twist and squirm as he cannot answer the question. The question is simple, how is extreme interrogation and waterbaording of KSM different from shooting Bin Laden in the head?
Tom Donilon stated that waterbaording of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad is not consistent with our values and not necessary to get the kinds of intelligence that we need. This was followed with a question by Chris Wallace, but shooting Bin Laden in the head is consistent with our values? Donilon’s response, we are at war with Osama Bin Laden. Um, as if we are not also at war with KSM?
President Barack Obama gets a gold star for giving the ok on the mission that killed Osama Bin laden; however, the bigger picture and long term issue that has come from the killing of Bin Laden is that Obama and his minions cannot say it is consistent with American values to shoot a terrorist in the head, yet say it is not to interrogate terrorist by any means available. Especially when so many have stated that waterboarding played a role in garnering intel in the “mosaic” the captured and killed Osama Bin Laden. Any thinking and common sense person, ie the American voters, can see that waterboarding was vindicated and played a part in killing Bin Laden and that Obama was wrong.
UPDATE I: Of course Tom Donilon was provided a much more softball interview an ABC’s ‘This Week’ with Christiane Amanpour. Donilon stated that the killing of bin Laden also led to the single largest cache of information ever recovered from a senior terrorist. Of course that treasure trove was also gained in part from extreme interrogation methods, i.e. waterboarding. Of course that part was left out of this interview. Or at least referenced in a negative tone.
Donilon stated that no single piece of intel lead to the capture and killing of Bin Lade, it was 100′s. Except for the fact that many of the ones that came after were a result of the initial intelligence and hard work of CIA analysts. Sorry, but like with any investigation, it had to start somewhere and the nickname of the courier is as good as any.
