Jake Tapper Liked His Shit Sandwich

Jake Tapper just couldn't help himself, apparently.

Why leave all the accolades as an ass-wiping Flying Monkey to Mike Allen?

It happened during the ABC World News last evening, in the story about President Obama's visit to CIA Headquarters, to explain the release of the Bush Grindhouse Torture Memos, and slap the CIA'ers upside the head, telling them to buck-up and drop the droopy faces;

“Don’t be discouraged by what’s happened in the last few weeks,” he told employees. “Don’t be discouraged that we have to acknowledge potentially we’ve made some mistakes. That’s how we learn. But the fact that we are willing to acknowledge them and then move forward, that is precisely why I am proud to be president of the United States and that’s why you should be proud to be members of the C.I.A.”
Tapper ended his segment with quoting someone, unnamed;
"One former CIA director said over the weekend that many CIA officers have told him that they're worried that America's enemies will use the methods detailed in the memos against CIA officers ..."

What a fucking suck-up, to either a source, some other former Bush Grindhouse crony, or a general nod to all the NeoNitWit, Flying Monkeys.

The CIA worries, quite certainly, about a lot of things.

I doubt, very much, that anyone in the CIA is worried, that, because of, as Tapper so seriously intoned, the release of the Bush Grindhouse Torture Memos, captured agents would be tortured in a similar fashion.

They would be tortured, first-and-foremost, because they are American CIA agents.

I would be surprised to find some terrorist, sitting around, totally fucking stumped, absent-minded, tabula rasa, of any daydreams, any thought, of how he could torture someone, let alone, needing to dig down deep to come up with the motivation to torture a captured CIA agent, just hoping, wishing, there was some kind of, oh, say, memo, out there, that could give him some ideas.

How, and where, we tortured terrorists, and other, at times, innocent suspects, has been out there, all over the world, on the World Wide Web, in newspapers and magazines, on television and blogs, just about any and all mediums, for about, the past five-years.

Not to mention, that torture has been around for a few centuries.

Tapper, adding that line into his report, was doing little more that carrying a big, ol' NeoNitWit jab at Obama, though, it wasn't in the camera shot, the flaming Right Wing Freak Show water bucket he lugged around for the report.

Maybe Tapper needs to learn how to use "The Google", or visit his networks' archives.

I mean, Jesus, Jake, you pissed all over yourself on this one.

You got spoon-fed a shit sandwich, and all you could do was say how great it tasted, and they pass it off on to your viewers.

Bonus Jake Tapper
