CIA Ditched Truth Drugs for Direct Torture of Prisoners After 9/11 – Analysts

0

from Sputnik News:

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The CIA found the use of truth drugs ineffective and appears to have fallen back on more direct methods of torture, or enhanced interrogation in its so-called Global War on Terror (GWOT) after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks against the United States, analysts told Sputnik.

The CIA appeared to have relied more on outright methods of torture or so-called “enhanced interrogation” techniques rather than using truth drugs after the September 11 terror attacks, University of Illinois Professor of International Law Francis Boyle said.

UPHEAVAL BEYOND ANYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS COMING — Bill Holter

from SGTreport:
Bill Holter joins me for an economic update, and despite some good news and sunny musings from our President, Holter says there is upheaval coming that is beyond imagination. Holter notes that the annual payments on the national debt have surpassed $500 Billion and will soon eclipse national defense spending. And with the Fed continuing to raise interest rates, President Trump is quite right when he says his biggest threat is the Federal Reserve.

Revolt Or Collapse: Pick One*

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

As usual the lie factory continues here — and this is from someone who knows better.

Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefit millions of Americans, but are major drivers of our national debt, which has skyrocketed to more than $21 trillion. If every U.S. taxpayer was billed for an equal share of that debt, we would each be charged about $400,000.

The cause of our out-of-control national debt is rooted in current and long-term obligations of these three big entitlement programs, due in large part to rapidly rising costs and an aging population.

Again, let me reference this Ticker, just one of dozens I’ve written over the years, that points out the truth: There is no crisis in Social Security.  There is a problem which can be addressed, but the problem was caused directly by tampering with interest rates within The Fed and Congress along with allowing millions of able-bodied people to claim “disability” — and some of them have been documented to have run marathons while allegedly “disabled.”

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Two heads of Russian military dying within 2 years and no specifics on their deaths?  Furthermore, the surrounding controversy over what they were tied to makes this even more interesting, don’t you think?

According to the Daily Star, Igor Korobox, 63, was said to have died on Wednesday.

The word came from Russia’s defence ministry.
