Has any political organization debased itself as more energetically than the Republican Party in recent memory? You should be utterly appalled at the neo-partisan parasitical officials who have spread like cancer in the body government. Winner takes all, win at all costs. Party politics has even replaced conservative policy. You know, wedge issues that negatively affect us directly, or from their unintended consequences. Laws passed to win elections.
The story I bring to you today, speaks pretty much for itself. In the New York Times article, “Ex-Prosecutor Tells of Push by Pentagon on Detainees,” I felt a sinking feeling in my gut and a deep sense of loss for this country.
“The former chief prosecutor Col. Morris D. Davis of the Air Force took the witness stand on behalf of a detainee and testified that top Pentagon officials had pressured him in deciding which cases to prosecute and what evidence to use. Pentagon officials had interfered with his work for political reasons and told him that charges against well-known detainees “could have real strategic political value” and that there could be no acquittals.”
“Colonel Davis was one of the Pentagon’s most vocal advocates of the Guantánamo military commissions, (and is now) one of the most visible critics of the system. Colonel Davis said Brig. Gen. Thomas Hartmann of the Air Force Reserve, directed him last year to push war crimes cases here quickly…trying to give the system legitimacy before a new president took office… and said, 'If we don’t get some cases going before the election, this thing’s going to implode.”
So what is the administrations real purpose here: a serious attempt to stop the next attack on U.S. soil, or get more Republicans elected? You know the answer.
These people are so inhuman.
