That Awkward Moment When John “Enhanced Interrogation” Yoo Suggested the US Create ISIS

Thought it couldn’t hurt to pass this around. The below is a quote from an op-ed from the Los Angeles Times written by ex-Bush Justice Department lawyer John Yoo. The article discusses Mr. Yoo’s suggestion for dealing with Al Qaeda.

Another tool would have our intelligence agencies create a false terrorist organization. It could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps and fundraising operations. It could launch fake terrorist operations and claim credit for real terrorist strikes, helping to sow confusion within Al Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities and to question the validity of communications.

Still creepy as hell.
