  • On this episode of China Uncensored:

  • is the US any better than China?

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell

  • the big news last week was the US Senate's release of its CIA torture report.

  • what's that?

  • no no I'm completely fine I've just been

  • awake for the last 180 hours

  • seven-and-a-half days with no sleep, and I'm totally okay

  • now I haven't been able to read the report for myself

  • but I'm sure its not like the CIA has been hiding

  • anything nefarious from the public

  • like waterboarding?

  • please,more like water bored.

  • I mean how bad could that be?

  • like a "series of near drownings".

  • okay. that sounds pretty bad.

  • But hey the CIA had to do it to get the kind of Intel that save lives and stop terrorism

  • they never got information about imminent attacks and didn't learn anything they didn't

  • already know

  • well I remember CIA director Michael Hayden saying they did get valuable information

  • They lied about it

  • okay but I mean the people they were torturing were terrorists

  • they weren't all terrorists

  • barely at least one person was just a

  • case of misidentification

  • what kind of idiot approved this thing

  • so when the US senate released its findings

  • from an investigation into CIA investigation techniques

  • they found that the enhanced interrogation techniques they were using

  • were actually discredited coercive interrogation techniques

  • such as those used by torturous regimes

  • during the Cold War to elicit false confessions

  • it was so bad that even the people doing the torturing

  • were disturbed by it

  • the CIA did a terrible thing that

  • the US needs to face up to and make sure never happens again

  • so from Beijing's perspective clearly

  • the moral of the story is chinese authorities

  • should be allowed to torture as many people as they want

  • not that they tortured, of course they don't

  • you might have missed that moral, though

  • through the huge amount of schadenfreude

  • in Chinese state-run media's

  • in-depth reporting on the CIA torture story

  • for example Communist Party mouthpiece Xinhua

  • wrote an editorial condemning the US for doing nothing

  • about its own human rights problems

  • that's right

  • why isn't the US talking about its own problems

  • except of course when the US Senate investigates the country's intelligence

  • agency and releases a fully unclassified report to the public

  • detailing the terrible atrocities they committed

  • but look I'm not trying to say the US is better than China

  • or that the CIA is somehow justified for what it did

  • i'm saying torture is bad especially when people

  • being tortured haven't committed any crimes

  • but the reason we now know about this is because people in the US government

  • spent 6 years investigating what happened

  • and now things can be done to stop it

  • no one's watching in China

  • there's no system of checks and balances

  • that's going to suddenly find the National People's Congress asking the secret police

  • if they've been torturing political prisoners again

  • so there need to be people and governments outside of China

  • keeping an eye on things -

  • which really, it seems like they happen

  • since the Chinese regime still does basically whatever it wants

  • while US companies keep tripping over each other

  • to throw money at it

  • also the CIA torturing people

  • while completely terrible doesn't mean I or any other individual

  • no longer has a right to want to see a better China

  • now if you'll excuse me i've a letter to write to congress

  • try doing that in China
