With the release of the CIA Report on Torture today, the American peoples are getting a definitive watered-down view of the Bush Administration's criminality and barbarism. There is also something else afoot: a reflection on America's moral values. The report outlines how the CIA supposedly lied to and deceived the Bushites about what was going on etc. Hogwash! They knew what was going on and their trolls were merely providing them with the news they wanted to hear which justified the torture program. Remember, this program was a financial windfall for Bush's cronies inside and outside the CIA. Have you forgotten about Blackwater (now called Z or whatever) and the companies hired to produce surveillance software to spy on all those terrorist Muslims (like the one that hired Ed Snowden).
So don't be fooled about the report's lies on accountability. The war criminals of the Bush Administration have gotten away with "murder" and resulted in thousands of American soldiers dying for those lies along with hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. To this the pundits and talking heads try to claim that the report damages America's moral values. I ask what values are they talking about. What can be pointed to in America that has a moral foundation. Our leaders lie about everything that matters to the people, deny people the opportunities they deserve, are willing partners with corporations in robbing the people by not paying their taxes, and never hesitate to lobby for more wars. Morality my ass, the report does one thing very well and that is expose a little of the truth about America.
Comments to think about.
