“Director Brennan and the CIA today are continuing to willfully provide inaccurate information and misrepresent the efficacy of torture,” Udall said.
“The CIA is lying. This is not an issue of the past, this is going on today.”
It is boggling that the media gives them so much time to lament their lack of due process, because they deserve it, but the innocent people they torture do not. Our poor widdle CIA agents sound like they all need a protein and a nap.
The torture program we did not have was extremely important.
Surprise- it's Scott Reichner! Although I have been to attended a number of water meetings over the years, I don't recall seeing Scott Reichner at any of them; definitely not at the informational meeting in September. Despite not showing up to listen to the people that have put a massive amount of time and money into the process had a very successful PR push for a small new non profit that is dead set to overturn and disrupt the carefully crafted agreements that have already been reached.
Rumor has it that Keith Regier is talking lawsuits -like 55 million dollars worth of lawsuits -to prevent the water compact from going through.
Reichner's new non-profit boasts hundreds of supporters and lists them by first name and last initial! New hires Eric Whitney and Steve Jess at Montana Public Radio appear to believe that Reichner is the real deal. I recommend that you read the work of Laura Lundquist at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle instead.
Unlike Reichner's group, Montana Water Stewards- a non partisan group- formed in 2013 for the express purpose of educating the public about the compact and they have earned credibility. Read the back story here.

A "Christian" group is spreading misinformation about doctor assisted suicide.
I can't believe that I didn't notice the story about the Nigerian posing as Attorney General Tim Fox to scam some lonely hearts earlier (like last month?)
Vaping your booze is the hot new thing to do. The FCC wants more time to do what it wants to do about Net Neutrality. Of course the telecoms are spending big bucks to confuse the issue. The usual suspects are urging the Federal Trade Commission to punt in favor of paid prioritization on the internet.
A new study finds a positive correlation between political donations and tax rates. Imagine that.
