    I didn't see 60 Minutes, but apparently they interviewed Jose Rodriguez, the former head of the CIA's Clandestine Service, who has a new book out.

    He defends the practice:

    And calls Nancy Pelosi a liar:

    Saw the segment. Jose Rodriguez is insane.

    Lesley Stahl thinks giving Ensure to KSM constitutes torture.There was at least one insane person in that interview but wasn't Jose Rodriguez.

    And I'm absolutely shocked that Nancy Pelosi may have lied...

    He was on Fox and Friends this morning...

    I don't agree with some of what he says, but he makes some interesting points. They also had the wife of one of the pilots who died in one of the 9/11 crashes on and she was singing his praises.

    So how long are we going to continue to allow retirement homes & hospitals to torture residents and patients by giving them Ensure?

    60 Minutes should do a story on this.

    Well, at least they weren't giving something clearly cruel and inhumane, like Schlitz.

    You shut your dirty whorish mouth.
    Schlitz is the nectar of the Gods.

    Speak of the Devil. KSM should just be glad he wasn't turned over to Chef.

    When will the porn film version of "Hard Measures" be released?

    I know Jose Rodriguez personally and have for about 20 years.

    He is most definitely not insane. He probably has a world-view that is starkly different from a whole lot of folks here; but he is most definitely not insane.

    If the lives of my family depended on my believing Jose Rodriguez' or Nancy Pelosi's rendition of a specific event, I would trust Jose Rodriguez on every day of the week that ends in the letter "Y".

    But ... but ... but he exposed liberals as liars. He has to be insane.

    I have to say, I'm curious.

    If he was the head of the Clandestine Service, how do you know him? A neighbor? From school?

    Did you know what he did for a living, or did he work for some anonymous front company as far as you knew?

    Or, maybe once you get that high up, it's not a secret that you work for the CIA anymore.
