I started reading James E. Mitchell's book, Enhanced Interrogation -- you can tell by the title what it's about. And I got p*ssed off before even getting through the preface. No, I'm not p*ssed because Mitchell was involved in the process. It's because Diane Feinstein or her staff outed Mitchell to the media.
Recall how Democrats made such a huge deal over the possibility that a Republican had outed Valarie Plame as a CIA operations officer. Based on the press coverage one would have thought some evil Republican was out to destroy reputations, careers, and lives. They were wrong, and it became a non-story once the real leaker turned out to be someone they didn't want to ruin.
However, outing Mitchell really could have been a life ending leak considering that ISIS called for his beheading. Luckily he survived. And apparently either he is currently well hidden or the threat has subsided.
But the double standard is breathtaking. Little wonder that so many people find it so easy to ignore Democrats' outrage these days, whatever the outrage of the day happens to be.
