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!!
DeJa-Vu: “With no shared sacrifices being asked of civilians after Sept. 11", Decades and War From, All Over Again!!

US & UK Seek Truths on CIA Torture & Rendition Policies

Fight to get to the truth on torture - in the US and the UK
• US Congress struggling to get data on CIA rendition programme
• UK parliament faces tougher battle

12 March 2014 - The contrast could scarcely be more stark.

In the US, the chairwoman of the US Senate intelligence committee, Dianne Feinstein, berates the CIA, accusing it of cover ups and intimidation. She accused it on Tuesday of removing information from computers relating to the senate committee's inquiry into the CIA's detention programme - to be blunt, torture.

"I have grave concerns", said Feinstein, "that the CIA's search may well have violated the separation of powers principle embodied in the United States Constitution".

Here in Britain, there is no such equivalent lawmakers' committee to call into account MI6, or MI5, or GCHQ. The membership of the parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) , currently chaired by Sir Malcolm Rifkind, a former Conservative defence and foreign secretary, has to be approved by the prime minister and judging by its performance it is essentially a creature of the executive.

So much for the separation of powers here.
