SOFREP on Fox News: Interrogation Techniques & Zero Dark Thirty

My latest appearance on FOX News discussing interrogation techniques and the movie Zero Dark Thirty.

I personally think that there are more effective ways of getting information out of people than water boarding. Should it still be in the tool box? Would I use it if I thought it could save innocent lives. Yes to both. As I stated on the show, “sign me up”.

    Obama prepares public to accept first Iranian nuclear test DEBKAfile Special Report January 15, 2013 (you'll note this news was released on a Friday)  To listen to our government's lies, read the following. Friday, Jan. 11 by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint US Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey. They explained at a joint news conference in Washington that if Assad chose to use his chemical stockpiles, it would be virtually impossible for US intelligence to detect it in advance or to stop him. “You would have to actually see it before it happened," said Dempsey. [my comment: you'll notice they are having trouble keeping the lies straight] Debkafile’s military and intelligence sources affirm that this new estimate may be convenient for some but it is false: Iran already has enough enriched uranium – produced or procured - for building at least five nukes. This is no secret. Wednesday, Jan. 9, the Financial Times reported that a stock of 5 tonnes of un-enriched uranium, enough to produce weapons-grade fuel for five atomic devices, had gone missing in Syria and may have passed to Iran. The stock had been prepared for the nuclear reactor Bashar Assad was building at Al-Kibar in eastern Syria before it was destroyed by Israel in 2007. The information was based on British intelligence sources. The nuances in Netanyahu’s current reference to the Iranian nuclear threat suggest that he too is aware of the new winds blowing in Washington. In his latest statement, he departed from his standard assertion that his government would not permit Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon and said instead: “The government which I head has invested billions to prepare the country for the Iranian threat.”
