    His right to free press, one of those pesky details in that damn piece of paper...

    You've done a good job here diverting people from the topic, haven't you?

      I didn't say that he was. I pointed out that the diarist falsely claimed that no one had ever accused him of being more than a propagandist.  I also pointed out that there is credible evidence to support their case. It may  be that he wasn't, as I conceded above, although there is evidence that the government's position is in fact correct.  

      •  Again, what "credible evidence", if they had it (1+ / 0-)

        why didn't they take it to a grand jury and INDICT him?

        Clearly they didn't have the "evidence" you wish to believe they had.

        DUE PROCESS OF LAW.

        That is the issue here.

        If they have nothing to hide, then why aren't they showing us, the American people what they do have?

        If they have nothing to hide, then release the damn "secret court rulings", "secret documents", "secret evidence" and "secret legal interpretations".

        Obviously they have something to hide and they're guilty until proven innocent.  Guilty of treason, IMO.

          Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. You can disbelieve him if you wish, but in doing so, you have to imagine a giant conspiracy between Mr. Abdulmtallab, his attorney, the US DOJ, The government of Great Britain, the then Government of Yemen and the New York Times. Possible, but unlikely. Simpler answer is that Capt. Underpants was telling the truth.

          •  ROFL, what a short attention span you think I (0+ / 0-)

            have.

            The Downing Street Memo's?  You'd have me believe verifiable liars, such as the British Government and their co-conspirators, the US government?

            If our government had evidence of his crimes, all they had to do was go to present their evidence to a grand jury and obtain an indictment against him.

            It's that simple.
