  •  Are you okay with torture not being prosecuted? (5+ / 0-)

    Do you not see how evil it is that crimes against humanity are not prosecuted, but a decent person who blew the whistle on torture is being persecuted/prosecuted to the fullest extent of whatever law they can throw at him?  Is the punishment commensurate to the crime here?  Nothing for torture and possibly life for blowing the whistle on torture?  It's outrageous that they stamp secret on their crimes against humanity and that people accept that these crimes should remain hidden.  

    I always wondered how the Nazis got away with committing such horror.  They made it illegal to harbor or transport their victims.  Most people obeyed those laws for fear of the consequences.

    Now I can see how it happens.  Too many cowardly sheep turn a blind eye to crimes against humanity, not enough Private Bradley Mannings brave and decent enough to help those who are suffering by uncovering the crimes against humanity.

    History will not look well on this period of US History.
