All U.S. citizens, vigilant and regular, need to take some time now with the release of the 6,000 page Torture Report to ignore that report and review the following:
Limited hangout: A limited hangout, or partial hangout, is a public relations or propaganda technique that involves the release of previously hidden information in order to prevent a greater exposure of more important details.
If I understand the report correctly, and I am not going to waste my time reviewing the details (which are well-known around the world), the abuses of the Bush era are exposed in this report, and an executive order by Obama ended the practice.
Bullshit. The purpose of the report then would not be to expose wrongdoing (or punish anyone), but rather to provide a sense of closure. In effect they are saying that the era of torture is ended.
Bullshit. That is a classic limited hangout.
