Squeaky flatulence

On NPR today, it was reported that the Red Cross had told the military about incidents of torture in military-run prisons long before the current scandal. Clearly, nothing was done about it. What surprises me most about the U.S. public's reactions is that people are not incensed over the lies of the government and military. Let us assume, for a moment, that the fascist Republican right is, in fact, right, and that captured Iraqis really all deserve to be tortured (even though over three-quarters of them are said to be completely innocent of any wrong-doing). Personally, I don't understand the logic of why innocent Iraqis deserve to be tortured while someone who kills and eats their victims (e.g., Jeffrey Dammer) somehow deserves no torture whatsoever, but let's leave that aside for the moment.

Assuming that torture is okay, aren't we still left with the problem of who in the hell is in charge of all of this? We're told it's a few bad apples. Then we're told that it isn't just a few bad guys but is in fact endemic, but it's really okay anyway. Then we're told the people in charge didn't know about it. Then we find out they did.

Evidently, these "words" spouted forth from our so-called leaders are in fact no more meaningful that the squeaking of flatulence. If We, the People want information on what OUR REPRESENTATIVES and OUR MILITARY are doing, where are we supposed to turn? In the end, we have to rely on reports from the foreign or the indie press.

The bad apples aren't the privates in some remote prison in Iraq. They're the idiots in the White House. And it's time to toss that rotten fruit in the bin before it stinks up our house as well as the neighbor's.
