  •  our identity as a nation of laws (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Nightprowlkitty, James Kresnik

    We cannot continue to style ourselves as a nation ruled by law, if we continue to make a public and international spectacle of our antics to AVOID investigating serious crimes that have been highly publicized and to AVOID enforcing U.S. and international law with regard to those crimes.

    By ducking and avoiding, by censoring the evidence and using legal double-speak to dodge the issue, we present an image of an outlaw nation that respects neither it's own laws, or the international laws to which it has agreed to hold itself accountable -- most certainly not a nation to be held up as a model for other countries to strive to emulate.
