    What, you were expecting a diary about how horrible the US is?  Sorry to disappoint you.
    I remember during the height of the Iraq war, a story on the tv news announced that The US Army found a torture site in DIRKADIRKADIRK. My first question was"I wonder if it's one of ours?"

      because many around here seem to crave stories that have the potential to demonize Obama...a trend that seemed to begin right around the time Edward Snowden became a household name.

        Ahh, the good ole days. Snowden was the toothpaste Obama couldn't get back in the tube. I don't hold it against the O man.

          in JackND's careful usage, seeming to crave stories that have the potential to demonize Obama back around 2008, i find his Ah-HAH to be a bit ... silly.

          To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

        strange how snowden's name just popped up again (after the non sequitur reference in the diary), even though the behavior of russian security forces at sochi has nothing at all to do with him.

        strange how anyone would try to connect the concept of "police whipping protestors" to criticism of obama, as if bho commanded municipal or state police forces.

        strange how the diary's rhetorical stance implies that folks around here point to putin's russia as a shining beacon or something.

        strange, strange, strange.

          cute how deeply into the weeds you're going just to resent my observation.
