  •  Extraordinary Rendition Global Torture Scheme (5+ / 0-)
    Fifty Countries Involved

    And nobody has reported, in all this time, nor probably can even with the FOIA as the CIA extended budget monies are considered extremely top secret and any pages given would be all blacked out in redaction, how many billions were paid out or promises made to countries to participate. That also goes for countries not participating in the extraordinary renditions but fell in line to support that administration in it's so called 'coalition of the willing' and either sent only a few troops or with most none at all, especially related to Iraq, as they quickly abandoned the main missions for even sending the military into that region with the drum beats pointed at Iraq, and the country cheered on that abandoning with flag waving patriotism(?)!! All rubber stamped and on the countries credit card, many of those still in congress, as that rubber stamping and the deficits from had started well before 9/11!!

      •  The Veterans should always come before (8+ / 0-)

        the warpigs. That teevee ads are pleading for dough to help the Vets really pisses me off (not the ads, the fact that there has to BE ads, dammit).
        After serving your country for a pittance, your comfort for the rest of your lives should be taken care of by the government. It's a fargin no-brainer.

        I ♥ President Obama and have his back.
        Hands off SocSec, Medicare and Medicaid. NO subsidies to rich Corps.
        Rich pay more, bloated DoD steal less. End war on Afghanistan 01/01/14.
