Could Soros be behind the demonization of the CIA? At his Open Society Institute website he has this blurb about his documentary. This man is evil, but could he possibly have this much influence on Obama? I say, yes.

Torture on Trial, a documentary video produced by Link TV,
examines how detainees held in U.S. military and CIA custody as part of
the "war on terror" were subjected to interrogation methods that
amounted to torture, how these methods came to be authorized by
high-level Bush administration officials, and the mounting demand for
accountability for torture. The half-hour program premieres on Sunday,
May 3, on Link TV at 10:00 p.m. ET, and can be viewed online at LinkTV.org.
Torture on Trial
features interviews with two investigative journalists who leaked
details from a confidential International Committee of the Red Cross
report documenting the physical abuse of detainees held by the CIA in
secret "black site" prisons—Jane Mayer, staff writer with The New Yorker and author of The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How The War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals,
and Mark Danner, U.C. Berkeley journalism professor. The report
describes in graphic detail how detainees were slammed against walls,
placed in excruciatingly painful positions, subjected to waterboarding,
and deprived of sleep for prolonged periods.
The program also
features interviews with two leading human rights activists, Elisa
Massimino, executive director of Human Rights First, and George
Hunsinger, founder of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture.
Additionally, the program features interviews with Retired Col.
Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin
Powell, and Maj. Matthew Alexander, a U.S. Air Force interrogator, who
offer military perspectives on how the use of torture is
counterproductive and harms U.S. interests. They also urge a full
airing of this tragic chapter of American history so that these
mistakes are not repeated.
Torture on Trial was supported by a grant from the Open Society Institute's National Security and Human Rights Campaign.
