Accountability

According to A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard, a former high level CIA official, the CIA is suffering from low morale as a result of the Inspector General’s probe into their use of torture.

Uh… Good? I mean, I’m glad that members of the agency AT LEAST recognize that OTHERS might take issue with their actions. Krongard says agency personnel may reconsider controversial programs that could place them in “personal legal jeopardy” if the programs are exposed.

Uh… Good? Isn’t the threat of consequences SUPPOSED to be a deterrent? Apparently CIA officials had warned President Obama that if he allowed information about harsh interrogation methods to become public, there would be an uproar “that could not be contained.”

Uh… Good? I mean, if nobody is outraged about this stuff, then perhaps The Terrorists Really Have Won™.
