Response to H2O Man (Original post)

Tue Dec 9, 2014, 07:32 PM

27. Sure, H2O Man. And we know the difference between "ought" and "is."

The President has already issued the "Get Out of Jail Free" card to the responsible persons, and he has absolved them on more than one occasion. What future Chief Executive will do other? Even the most progressive heroes on the Left are silent on this issue. The extent of their remorse is to say "Mistakes were made, now let's carry on." I would be shocked if any but the most low-level scapegoats are made to answer for this crime.

Since our government has shown time and again that it is unresponsive to public pressure, and since the bulk of our citizens don't even care enough to apply that pressure through the ballot box, what odds that we will see any form of justice done? Innocent men still languish in the prison at Guantanamo, and only Uruguay seems to care. Do you really think the majority of Americans really care that suspect terrorists were tortured? And even if they do care, do you think they'd go to any inconvenience to do something about it? Aside from posturing and crocodile tears, I expect this report to be a nine day's wonder at best. Besides, Congress has to vote again to repeal Obamacare, and surely another Benghazi investigation is in the works.
