    ...to me in this speech (emphasis mine):

    But I do have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things: the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice; government that is transparent and doesn’t steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere.

    I just hope he means what he says here and is willing to apply it in a practical sense to our own government...and our own recent past. I still believe our success and the success of our president ultimately hinges on accountability and a willingness to tell the truth about our time in the darkness.

    Watch this film! It will blow your mind! Media asked real questions then.
