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!!

Rendition and Torture: Review State Secrets

Supreme Court Asked to Review State Secrets, Torture Case

December 8, 2010 - The Supreme Court is being asked to review a lawsuit a lower court had dismissed against a Boeing subsidiary accused of helping the CIA transport detainees to secret foreign prisons where they were allegedly tortured.

The appeal to the high court concerns a September decision by the San Francisco–based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which cited the Obama administration’s evocation of the state-secrets privilege as grounds for dismissing the case. The lawsuit was brought by five foreign nationals who claimed the CIA, working with other governments, operated a so-called “extraordinary rendition” program to gather intelligence.

Ruling 6-5, a panel of the Circuit Court had ruled it was bound by a 1953 Supreme Court precedent requiring judges to dismiss cases if litigating them might expose government secrets and imperil national security. {read rest}
