Because freedom can't protect itself
Your talking about torture???? I will tell you torture. The National Institute of Health is going to pay with US Tax Dollars to teach Chinese prostitutes how to drink responsibility on the job.
How about some accountability on that.
That is $2.6 million US tax dollars.
Sorry got a little upset.
"Kudos" to the ACLU. The world deserves "the whole truth and nothing but the truth." If "torture" was condoned, what else has been deemed permissible. (Domestic surveillance activites are "out of control" and must be exposed.)
Please refer to the following two articles. We need to keep connecting the dots...
"The Illegal Spying Game, played over and over" by Glenn Greenwald of salon.com
"Marine admits illegally passing state secrets":
From the Daily Kos, regarding Lt.Col. Darrel Vandeveld: “The retaliation Vandeveld feared began even before he testified, and it was fierce and personal. Frakt told the court that the chief prosecutor had directed Vandeveld to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, ordered him to stay at home, and prohibited him from coming into his office pending his official release from military service.”
This is the way it works. If anyone complains or speaks out about torture (or the domestic surveillance efforts that have yet been revealed to the general public), one is asked to submit to a psychiatric evaluation. The goal is to discredit and marginalize any opposition — to silence those who do not agree with state-supported terror and torture. It’s shameful.
ACLU. ACLU. Go ACLU.
Thanks for all your hard work, your dedication to our principles, and sticktoitiveness. (Funny my spell checker doesn't like that word.)
Aloha to you all.
Amrit Singh, the ACLU lawyer digging up torture cases by American soldiers, is a daughter of Prime Minister of India.
Her dad Manmohan Singh in the meantime is using kids in villages to clean up mines in India and terrorizing poor tribals. His police is raping tribal women and beating up children. Why can’t she show some light of civilization to her own dad? Or may be civilized people do not live in India and that is why she immigrated to USA.
