Either Mika Brzezinski is trying to spin right wing talking points or she is just downright stupid. Check out this exchanged from Morning Joe where Ed Schultz had to take on the entire cast. Pay particular attention around the 4:20 mark:
While Schultz is talking about the terror plot broken up by law enforcement yesterday he points out that no one had to be torture and that this was the product of good old police work. Mika responds with “well there was an informant”.
Could she really be that dense? Is being an informant somehow synonymous with waterboarding?
Police have used informants for years. All are voluntary. Some might do it as a feeling of “civic duty” and other’s might offer the information as a way to reduce their own punishment, but it is voluntary.
Mika tries to call herself a “liberal”, but she sure doesn’t show it, and if she is a liberal then she makes all liberals look bad.
