Response to H2O Man (Original post)

16. We've been out in the streets seeking justice for the victims of this corrupt system...

and, as tired as I am, I can't help but feel a twinge of rising irony since this latest report on all the torturing has hit the airwaves.

Where is the justice for all of those many victims of such horrific treatment at the hands of the good ole U.S. of A. "Intelligence" and its military?

For days before the release of that thousands-paged indictment, the MSM was chuck full of officials moaning and groaning, worrying greatly about possible repercussions, the safety of Americans abroad, and the security of the multitude of American "interests" around the world. Not once did I hear any talking-head mention the word "Justice" for those who've been murdered and tortured, not before the Torture Report was released and not now after, even tho they've all been so busy reading it and analyzing it and gaping their shocked mouths wide.

You've asked what I think and while I've no idea, legally, who might be brave enough or competent enough to do it, it must be done...seeking justice for those wretched crimes that were committed by our own government. I'm already preparing letters to send off to the two women who represent me in Washington (toning down my absolute disgust has been hard, but they've both heard from me several times before on the subject of Torture over the years and I know that they're sympathetic to my feelings, so I believe each of them might understand), telling them that now is the time to take decisive action to see that such criminals are rightly punished.

I've often felt thru my life that dealing with our government was similar to being alone in the wilderness, but you have my voice, if needed.

Not in my name.
