I would say that right no we are seeing the effect of eight years of Bush II and Obama's shameful decision  to follow in the Cheney Bush 'anti terrorism' policy. This means having a disregard for human life that is not White. Even American citizens are fair game if they are the wrong kind. And we see the Chinese saying we should get our house in order before proceeding as the world's moral police. Putin sees this also. Can we criticize  Putin's actions in Russia's near abroad when we still sanction Cuba?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    and you should know what constitutes a good diary.

    Well, this is not a good diary.

    Moreover, its central point is a fallacy (affirming a disjunct). That somebody in the US did something bad doesn't mean that I, for example, cannot criticize Putin.

    •  *correction... (0+ / 0-)

      denying the antecedent, not affirming a disjunct.

      If we are infallible, we can criticize others.
      We are not infallible.
      Therefore, we cannot criticize others.

      If Queen Elizabeth is an American citizen, then she is a human being.
      Queen Elizabeth is not an American citizen.
      Therefore, Queen Elizabeth is not a human being.
