International Criminal Tribunal - U.S. Torture?
What Johnathan Turley says, with heavy heart and disbelief we've gone this far as a Country, should be brought into public discussion and possible implementation, as our Representatives seem to be hell bent on going along with the administrations shredding of the Constitution and the Laws of this Country!
This is not only about crimes that might have been committed by the administration and others, In Our Names, this is about the possible destruction of our Constitution and Moral Standing as a Democracy, by our highest leaders and our representatives as well as others we employ that work for and under the Laws that we as a Nation demand be followed by all and condemn others for breaking the International Laws we helped establish.
The book by Jane Mayer mentioned in the Video: The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How The War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals
We are all responsible for what we allow those we hire to lead and work for us do, especially when against our Laws and International Law and we let it go Unchallenged, we become the participants of those actions and as guilty as those who might have committed illegal acts!
I wasn't there, and neither were anyone else alive today in this country, when our Constitution was hammered out, we're not privy to the discussions, as a group and privately.
But I do know what I've been taught to believe we are as a Nation! I've been around a long time, and have heard us condemn others, over and over, for their Human Rights Violations and suspected International and Internal Criminal Activities. I've watched as our Government Agencies, CIA, Intelligence, have gone against the rule of Law and our own Condemnations of others!
I served in this Countries Military and in a Conflict when our Government was Lying to the Country, I participated in the destruction of another's country and it's people based on those lies, that this Country still hasn't come to terms with!
We are repeating that time and those lies as well as our actions have been compounded ten fold, if not more, and this time is even more dangerous for us and this planets people because of our actions and those lies!
We are bound by our Constitution and Moral Obligation to hold all who developed and expanded those lies and actions to be held Accountable, for as a Nation they are Us!
Have I, and by extension All Of Us, been living an even bigger Lie as to what this Country believes it is as we've Allowed the handful of those we employ do the total opposite of those beliefs, I Hope Not!
