WTF did he expect from an agency that would TORTURE people? Fuck him.


#3

This can’t be true, because such reprisals would violate the law, and the government does not violate the law.


#4

If he should be punished for anything it should be the torture he participated in, not his cooperation in an investigation to uncover it.


#5

Fuck him. He should be punished for being a CIA shitbag. Period.


#6

Ever hear of omerta, Mr. Torturer Interrogator?

Exactly—he should be punished for being a shitbag and/or torturer, not for helping to expose that torture. We should incentivize the behavior we want to see and discourage the behavior we don’t.

If torture carries no punishment but ratting out your fellow agents does then why should we expect any other CIA interrogators to stop torturing people?

I’m pretty sure that’s exactly the point of the institution’s behaviour.
