I know of Jenny O that she opposes torture with as much revulsion as I do. Plenty of us had lots to say about Saddam Hussein, Tienanmin square, East Timor, Idi Amin, as well as having lots to say about our own disreputable government that is currently imprisoning children in concentration camps. I for one have only recently been doing it on this forum, so BeardedBruce can hardly comment on my consistency.
The point to me is that the American Government has been claiming the moral high ground over the rest of us for years, while refusing to ratify many just causes in matters of the environment, land mines and a meaningful world court. With the dreadful revelations coming out of the Washington woodwork, one can hardly be surprised at the anger of people at discovering that the world's chief policeman is as corrupt as the rest of the world's self appointed coppers.
In this day and age, the glib throwing around of the term "Hypocracy" about any who's opinions diverge from ones own is more a comment on the speaker than his subject. Address the issues please, BeardedBruce, rather than dumping on the messengers.
