It will be interesting to see how this plays out, via AP:
Officials say CIA interrogators in secret overseas prisons developed the first strands of information that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Current and former U.S. officials say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, provided the nom de guerre of one of bin Laden’s most trusted aides. The CIA got similar information from Mohammed’s successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi. Both were subjected to harsh interrogation tactics inside CIA prisons in Poland and Romania.
The ironies of this story are growing deeper and deeper by the hour.
Obama and his supporters, who opposed the secret intelligence operations and interrogations as illegal, now are reaping the political benefits of those operations and interrogations.
“Obama may be re-elected because George Bush had the good sense not to listen to Obama.”
And Cheney’s assassination squad just killed bin Laden. More on Cheney’s assassination squad here.
