More Nonsense

The following statement from Dennis Blair is patent nonsense. Evidently, our interrogation techniques prevented another al Qaeda attack which one must presume saved lives, but these are less precious than our "image" abroad. Here is the quote:

The Obama administration's top intelligence officer, Dennis C. Blair, has said the information obtained through the interrogation program was of "high value." But he also concluded that those gains weren't worth the cost.

"There is no way of knowing whether the same information could have been obtained through other means," Blair said in a statement. "The bottom line is these techniques have hurt our image around the world, the damage they have done to our interests far outweighed whatever benefit they gave us and they are not essential to our national security."
