    White House deputy national security advisor John Brennan Tuesday knocked down the myth that waterboarding provided crucial intelligence that led to the location of Osama bin Laden.

    “So we’ve been talking about the different details and methods that lead up to this moment, and obviously there is word out today that waterboarding played a very big role or role in actually getting the information,” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski told Brennan. “Is that the case?”

    “Not to my knowledge,” Brennan explained.

    “The information that was acquired over the course of nine years or so came from many different sources, human sources, technical sources, as well as information that detainees provided, and it was something that as a result of the painstaking work that the analysts did, they pieced it all together that led us to the Abbottabad compound and led us to the successful operation on sunday,” he added.

    Fox News’ Fox Nation website claimed Tuesday that waterboarding led to the death of bin Laden.

    Interesting.

    Especially since he was a Bush appointee of the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

    Obama needs to get tiger team going to figure out just what the hell all his dudes are supposed to say.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    And these days you can add "And hope nobody is recording what you say."
