America’s 21st century Pearl Harbor, 9/11, amounted to a ticking time bomb.
Confronting evidence that Al Qaeda operatives were planning a second wave of attacks against the American people, the CIA employed enhanced interrogation techniques, EITs, in an attempt to obtain actionable intelligence, time-sensitive information pertaining to Al Qaeda’s next intended moves. This was critical towards safeguarding American lives. And it worked.
Senate Democrats, betraying the security of CIA operatives and the American people, asked the President to declassify and release a report this month in 2014 on the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.
The President did just that.
As a result, thousands of Marines and United States military personnel around the globe remain on “high alert.” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered all combatant commanders to assess troop combat readiness.
The expectation is that Muslim mobs and/or terrorists will precipitate violence and destruction against American civilian areas as well as U.S. diplomatic missions and military bases.

Consider: The Democrats took $50 million in American tax dollars and used it to endanger the lives of every American at home and abroad, including U.S. intelligence operatives and military personnel – betraying the very people who live their lives to defend and protect the United States from terrorists.
The Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Senator Diane Feinstein, a Democrat from California, stated in the Foreword of the Committee’s report that she watched with horror as innocent men and women jumped out of the World Trade Center to escape being burned alive. She wrote, “The images, and the sounds as their bodies hit the pavement far below, will remain with me for the rest of my life.” [See: http://www.intelligence.senate.gov/study2014/sscistudy1.pdf ]
But apparently the death and destruction Senator Feinstein witnessed on 9/11 was not enough for her or the Senate Democrats.
Strategic Solutions asks that you contact Senate Democrats and make clear you will hold them accountable for any loss of American life as a result of the release of a one-sided report, filled with errors in fact, and lacking a single interview from a CIA operative inside the EIT Program.
