Take all the time you need to try to figure it out for yourself if you can't comprehend all that quickly. Since from here on in, we're staying schtum on said subject. After all, who ever said we were here to educate enemies? Especially, enemies within.

Unfortunately, much as we'd cherish the chance to show certain special things, we can't.
But we can show you - and
CIA destroyed interrogation tapesWell now, slap us in the kisser with wet flat fish and flatten us all with that fabled feather duster! Surprise, surprise. NOT.
The CIA destroyed the tapes when being scrutinised over secret prisons The CIA has confirmed that it destroyed at least two video tapes showing the interrogation of terror suspects.
According to the intelligence agency, the tapes were destroyed to protect the identity of CIA agents and because they no longer had intelligence value.
But civil liberties lawyers have refused to accept this, saying the CIA previously denied such tapes existed.
They say the move appears to be an attempt to destroy evidence that could have brought CIA agents to account.
The New York Times, which broke the story, quotes current and former government officials as saying the CIA destroyed the tapes in 2005 as it faced Congressional and legal scrutiny about its secret detention program.
Officials feared the tapes could have raised doubts about the legality of the CIA's techniques, the newspaper says.
They can recognise a vehicle registration plate from satellites circling in space. They can examine at will every single one of everyone's emails with ease. They can continually listen in to (and tape), all of our telephone talks.
Yet they can't (like even the most unsophisticated civilian TV techies do daily), simply blank or fuzz out faces?
Yeah, sure. And the band played 'Believe me if you like'.
Call this continual load of lying crap what you want to - coincidence, conspiracy, careless - or perhaps to put it more politely, a clear cut (and dried) case of economy of truth.
Whatever you care to call it, remember the famous literary line, "A Rose by any other name" ?
Well, we say the CIA are shower of shitty serial liars. What's more, we challenge absolutely anyone to prove us wrong.
There are also questions over whether CIA agents withheld information from the courts and a presidential commission.
The CIA's failure to make the tapes available to a federal court hearing the case of the terror suspect Zacarias Moussaoui or to the 9/11 Commission could amount to obstruction of justice, according to the New York Times.
