AB Stoddard, Associate Editor of The Hill, argued that the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on enhanced interrogation would cause members of the military and intelligence communities to wonder if they would be subject to “public condemnation” for “carrying out the policies of this administration or the next one?” on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“i think that Americans probably believe the truth lies somewhere between Dick Cheney’s account of this and reports that once KSM’s will was broken, the discussions translated into 2,000 intelligence reports and the Senate Intelligence report. I think people think ‘were there abuses? Yes. People have told us there have been abuses. Was it rampant? Probably no. Did they go rogue? Probably not.’ And there is a larger question whether you’re in the military or our intelligence community or defense community right now carrying out the policies of this administration or the next one. Will you someday be subject to this kind of public condemnation? And with that in mind, will you go into this business or will you stay into this business at a time when we’re so precariously positioned in the world in many wars and hot crises?” she stated.
