With all the horror that took place in Boston, Massachusetts, April 15th and throughout the ensuing days until Friday night, April 19th, when the alleged suspect was captured, very little—if any—news reporting focused on significant national issues that ought to have been considered equally important to the well-being of the nation’s safety and security but apparently was overlooked. The New York Times, however, gave mention to “U.S. Engaged in Torture After 9/11, Review Concludes.”
Reading NYT journalist Scott Shane’s report, one realizes just how much the public doesn’t know but should, since the United States apparently committed what is being considered “war crimes.” That assessment came after a two year study by a bipartisan commission co-chaired by two former U.S. congressmen – Republican, Asa Hutchinson and Democrat, James R. Jones – of coercive interrogation methods used on prisoners by the George W. Bush administration.
The Constitution Project convened the study, which resulted in The Report of the Constitution Project’s Task Force on Detainee Treatment, a 577-page document.
Although the report covers actions taken during three different administrations beginning with that of President Bill Clinton and ending with that of President Barack Obama, most of the activity studied here occurred during the administration of President George W. Bush. This is unavoidable as Bush was president when the horrific attacks on U.S. soil occurred on September 11, 2001, and thus had the burden of responding quickly and decisively to the situation.
While the report deals largely with the period of the Bush administration’s response to the attacks, the investigation was neither a partisan undertaking nor should its conclusions be taken as anything other than an effort to understand what happened at many levels of U.S. policymaking.
The Task Force came up with 24 Findings and Recommendations, which can be read at pages 9 through 24 in the report.
Additionally, there is another still-secret Senate interrogation report that could shed further light and impact on the Constitution Project’s report. Why are that Senate report and its information being withheld from U.S. taxpayers, who foot the bills for all the wars administration warmongers have gotten us into?
As with all things politics, there are various opinions about how water boarding torture and other ‘guaranteed’ methods of finding information ought to be considered. However, Co-chair James R. Jones sums up what he learned while working on the investigation as, “I had not recognized the depths of torture in some cases. We lost our compass.”
Probably no one dissects the Constitution Project’s report better than Dr. Steve Pieczenik, a psychiatric MD, former Naval Captain, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. To understand the report as Dr. Pieczenik interprets it from numerous years of solving international crises for various administrations, readers may want to visit his blog at http://pieczenik.blogspot.com/.
Dr. Pieczenik has an interesting post on his blog about the Boston Marathon bombings. Maybe readers ought to check that out, since it contains more information than readers are being told by the mainstream media.

Nice job on this one Alex, sums it up quite nicely….spoke to lots of friends in the area at the time, lots of fishy things going on….timing of the bombings, advance warnings, etc. (link)
However, Dr. Pieczenik opens up about the Constitution Project report after the headline “Obama Clinton and Bush Indicted For War Crimes While Media Exploits Boston False Flag” posted here. Then, Dr. Pieczenik really goes full throttle on the Alex Jones show about the Boston Marathon events.
What, in the name of God’s world is really going on that we don’t know?
