In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

If only the US would do the same

Not just 'would' but the need to do, for our own now greatly damaged standing as a once leader country on this planet but also for the generations here now and coming for they will be dealing with what we've created and then enhanced, our legacy to them, certainly not what was built and left for us!!

The necessary reckoning on rendition and waterboarding

The UK has taken great strides in exposing its complicity with illegal detention and torture. If only the US would do the same

16 November 2010 - The British government's settlement agreement to pay compensation to former Guantánamo detainees over claims that they were unlawfully captured and abused while in custody is a meaningful, though not complete, government statement on its complicity in extraordinary rendition and torture. Coming so soon after George W Bush's boast that he enthusiastically authorised torture, the British move highlights the absurdity of the American political and legal processes that so easily prevents any accountability for such blatant misconduct and lawlessness.

Tuesday's announcement of a financial settlement with former Guantánamo detainees is an important step for the UK government in admitting its role in the Bush administration's unlawful detention and interrogation practices. Prime Minister David Cameron has been explicit in his condemnation of torture and unlawful detention, as has President Barack Obama, as not only immoral and illegal, but ineffective and counterproductive. He should be commended for his strong stand against torture. {read rest}
