President Obama puts CIA in tight spot

President Barack Obama speaking at the CIA  Virginia headquarters tried to defend his choice to release top-secret memos, that detailed the CIA’s use of simulated drowning while interrogating terror suspects. The Justice Department published previously classified memos that described the President Bush administration CIA interrogation techniques. There has been a denouncing of this action by four former CIA directors and several senior agency officials, opposed the release of the memos. The President said he would not to seek prosecution of Bush administration lawyers, CIA agents, or interrogators who took part in approving or carrying out the harsh interrogation tactics. There is another shoe to drop as the Senate Intelligence Committee is completing an investigation of the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. These decisions by President Obama might hand tie any future action from that committee. You have to believe the agents that meet with the President for this Q&A are left feeling that he does not have there best interest at heart. When you release secret CIA documents for whatever reason, you are making their missions and actions more difficult moving forward. The relationships they make are based on trust and once it is known that your anonymity could be in jeopardy, it makes it harder for anyone to want to help you.

And we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain
