W.H. accidentally emails torture report doc to AP

Email misfires are usually just embarrassing, and in very rare instances they also deliver a scoop directly into a reporter's inbox. Late Wednesday, The Associated Press reported that someone at the White House accidentally emailed them a State Department document detailing talking points on a classified and harshly critical CIA interrogation report:

Quote

    "This report tells a story of which no American is proud," says the four-page White House document, which contains the State Department's preliminary proposed talking points in response to the classified Senate report, a summary of which is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

    "But it is also part of another story of which we can be proud," adds the document, which was circulating this week among White House officials and which the White House accidentally emailed to an Associated Press reporter. "America's democratic system worked just as it was designed to work in bringing an end to actions inconsistent with our democratic values."


The document also lists a series of possible questions reporters and others might ask about the current administration's response to the Senate report.

The report by the Senate concludes that interrogation techniques used on detainees after 9/11 were more brutal than originally understood and that then-Secretary of State Colin Powell and some ambassadors in whose countries the detention facilities were held were not initially briefed on the program.

The "White House" is ignorant and arrogant but they don't accidentally do anything.

Bush's fault. Has to be.

Truer words were ne'er spoken.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

This is so obviously an intentional "leak."  The scary part is that my oldest daughter, who is 11, could write a more believable message.
