Senator Richard Burr (R - NC) brags about torture (Is wrong on many levels)

Burr brags about torture | BlueNC

Richard Burr, can STFU anytime now.
Aside from the shameful act of using this information to enhance his political standing, Senator Burr has also demonstrated, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he doesn't possess the discretion to be briefed on intelligence matters.
I've seen "Yes we did," and "No we didn't" posts and tweets fly all day and haven't had chance to analyze for myself whether we really know if the information that led to ObL's killing was obtained by torture or not. What I haven't seen anybody say yet, is that regardless of whether the intel was the outcome of "enhanced interrogation techniques" or not, it is still illegal, bad policy, and a moral failure to use torture at all.

I haven't heard much out of Burr lately. Good to know he's still the same old [expletive deleted].
