Subject: RE: BS: CIA torturers (God Bless America)
OK, get precise - but the sense in the UK is that we're not only not accepting the crime, we're not accepting the cover-up, and we're not accepting anyone who goes along with it. That means the whole US political system from top to bloody bottom is seen as an utter and complete fuck-up, from GWBII who did it with the backing of his minions to Obama who's allowed him to get away with it with the backing of his minions. You have no end of International Treaties and on the strength of this not one of them is worth the paper they're written on. Tens of thousands just hit the street to protest, rightly, abuse of a racial minority, but there's narry a squeak from anyone about the world being led by a penny-ante bunch of shysters. It's that bad, a complete diplomatic disaster which will result in the Western world being held hostage for the next generation or longer.
The UK s starting to shift on this, and if the US wants to retain its "special relationship" with the country who gave it its military mojo back, then it has to get off its fat complatent arse and start to clean the shit out of a considerable number of bodies.
