Because freedom can't protect itself
When are they going to seek accountability for the people who HELPED with September 11?
B/c I call having someone set on fire and burned out of existence so effectively that they can't find his remains 'torture.'
I hope people are interested in finding all the people who DID help with that b/c they need to be called to account as much as if not more than ANYbody.
Thank you. I am and have been a victim of horrific torture and more for 20 years. I began to write about some if it, hoping to illustrate that citizens in this country also, if they are too "influential", honest, becoming too wealthy (very), and are perceived as too "powerful", especially as a 35 year old woman, as I was, can become a target of murder. If that fails, we have a brutally well oiled machine of torture and terror that is used against our citizens. I am 55 and it has changed, but never ended.
I am, I believe, coming towards a solution or end to this.
You defined torture as burning alive and I agree.
I my way, though, I have been walking through fire for 20 years and the fact is, it all seems to happen for political reasons, monetary gain, or in the case of Guantanamo Bay, I don't know what to call it.
I know though, that there must be something wonderful and more happiness ahead and at least, I am alive. :))
