  •  Americans simply don't care anymore (4+ / 0-)

    regardless of the letter after their name, if there' some thing 98% of Americans agree on it's that no American leader should ever be held responsible for war  crimes, torture, illegal invasions, all these things, as well as elevating America's elite into a special class immune to the law and thus shit-canning the whole concept of equality before the law, are perfectly okay in the name of "pragmatism".

        thing; Kissenger's deals with VN, South and Central America and the ME were for short term goals sacrificing long term successes. He was the George Allen of diplomats "The Future is Now". Shortsightedness is not pragmatism or if it is, it is the stupid sort of pragmatism, like putting your walls into the fireplace because there is a snowstorm outside.

      who care deeply and passionately about justice for crimes both domestic and international committed by the Bush Administration. Not just evidenced by the fact of related diaries. I, for one, will continue pushing for investigation, prosecution and whatever comes after. We can't reclaim the moral high ground without doing the messy, unpleasant work required to earn back our right to stand there. We've let it slide and this is where it led. It is absolutely unacceptable to me as an American that crimes this egregious that have been commmitted against me and in my name be left unanswered to rot and resow themselves for another generation to reap. Americans believe in justice and that we're good and honorable. We have an obligation to live up to that belief and not give in to an expedience that is merely laziness or cowardice and that sets up another wave of even worse crimes in the future.
