Cherrypicking and the naked emporer

Stephen Hays provides another example how the tortured the debate has become in “Comically Dishonest”. The issue is the IG report on CIA interrogation techniques. There have been a number of reports and opinions that have taken the a priori point of view that the CIA used illegal torture in its interrogations and these efforts did not produce result. What Hayes illustrates is the degree to which some will go to adhere to their point of view.

Apparently Sargent did not read my posts or the IG report very carefully. In my original post about his work I not only quoted the passage he accuses me of omitting, I quoted it twice.

It is indeed comically dishonest but the real tragedy is that the emperor without clothes just doesn’t realize he might be parading around naked.
