How the hell does the American government get away with this? I suppose these whistleblowers who trying to prevent weapons from falling into the hands of Iraqi insurgents should be glad they were interrogated by Bush's thugs and weren't sent to Syria to be tortured.

Small potatoes. The purpose of being in the middle east is to force conformity with the western world.

What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. - Bertrand Russell
