Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough diverted a discussion about the CIA torture report with drones on Tuesday, took a day off, then reprised his act Thursday, simultaneously dismissing the Senate Intelligence Report on the CIA’s
terror funplex enhanced interrogation techniques while salivating for the details of some future report on President Barack Obama’s drone program.
“Let’s just go ahead and just kill them all, and if we kill 5-year-old girls and 85-year-old grandmas, so be it; we feel better about ourselves because that seems cleaner,” was the host’s description of the drone program. “That’s what liberals are saying today. That’s what Joe Biden’s been saying, that’s what Barack Obama’s been saying.”
“The drone program went into overdrive on January 21st, 2009,” Scarborough continued. “When you talk about five years from now, ten years from now, the information comes out about this drone program, and people actually report on this drone program, it’s going to look a hell of a lot worse, a hell of a lot deadlier, a hell of a lot more random, and a hell of a lot more inhumane than waterboarding three prisoners in 2002 and 2003.”
The Senate’s report was slightly more comprehensive than three waterboarding prisoners, but whatevs.
