To the Point

An empty shell as president, a torturer running the secret government, Education run by a privileged amateur, and the EPA pivoted to environmental destruction for pay, I’d say America is actually sporting a government that is representative of the American government.--Upthepeople/CommonDreams

Every Picture Tells a Story, Don't It?

The Pentagon on Friday was forced to release nearly 200 photographs of bruises, lacerations, and other injuries inflicted on prisoners presumably by U.S. military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The record-dump was the result of a Freedom of Information Act request and nearly 12 years of litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which fought to expose the Bush-era torture.

The images, the group says, prove that there was "systemic abuse of detainees." And while troubling, attorneys say that even more problematic is the roughly 1,800 photographs that the government refused to disclose.--Common Dreams.

I don't know about HC's victimization by the "vast right-wing conspiracy" seeking to undo her political career, but here is more evidence of an actual conspiracy to cover up the war crimes of Junior and his cronies.

BTW, while Bernie is no peacenik he did vote against the congressional authorization of Dubya's outrageous war.

At least he has that going for him.  Clinton most definitely does not.
