Hayden Suits Up To Dress Down Obama

General Hayden appeared on MSNBC today in a suit rather than the usual military uniform to dress down President Obama for releasing what had been previously classified documents. We mentioned these particular documents in a previous post.

Those documents reveal torture practices used by US interrogators on prisoners held at Gitmo, and elsewhere perhaps, during the Bush II regime, of which Hayden was part and parcel.

The General said that Obama was making a mistake by releasing information about how prisoners were going to be treated.

Isn't that what The Geneva Conventions were specifically designed to do? Don't those conventions of that treaty we agreed to decades ago tell everyone everywhere how prisoners will be treated? Exactly how they are to be treated and not treated?


Well then, pursuant to the supreme law of our land, the US Constitution, we are to know this about that treaty:
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
(US Constitution, Article VI, emphasis added). Big secret? Really?

No General Hayden, it is not a big secret that you are a joke, and that you willfully take part publicly in propaganda as you advocate disobedience to the United States Constitution you have sworn to protect.


  1. It is amazing how they conveniently interpret the Constitution to fit their agenda. I will be disappointed if Obama does not open these to the public, it is what he promised to do, to be transparent to the The People.

    Keep up the good work, Dredd.

  2. Thanks.

    Obama has released many of them that were previously classified by Bush II as he said during the campaign.

    The remaining ones, two or three, are now at issue.

    BTW I have checked out your interesting blog when you were over seas.
