Was actually empty missile tubes and there never was 1 Patriot missile in Poland. Ha ha ha ha!!!
I wonder how much $$$$ we scammed out of Poland over that little boondoggle??!!!

While partially being right you have to read between the lines as to what this article, and it's authors are saying.
Now read this part...
Do you believe that it is in Americans' interest to allow a small group of U.S. leaders to unilaterally murder, maim, imprison and/or torture anyone they choose anywhere in the world, without the knowledge let alone oversight of their citizens or ]the international community? And, despite their proven record of failure to protect America -- from Indochina to Iran to Iraq -- do you believe they should be permitted to clandestinely expand their war-making without informed public debate? If so, you are betraying the principles upon which America was founded, endangering your nation, and displaying a distinctly "unamerican" subservience to unaccountable authority. But if you oppose autocratic power, you are called to support Wikileaks and others trying to limit U.S. Executive Branch mass murder abroad and failure to protect Americans at home.
I am highlighting that part simply because it clearly conveys part of the reason the authors posted this.
The international community SHOULD NOT be able to oversight, or know everything the U.S. does.
Do you people actually believe that every government is completely open to it's people?... that they don't have secrets?...
I am not saying that AMERICANS should just do what the government says, or believe it all, but neither do I agree with the author of that article in their claim that the "international community should be able to know, and oversight what the U.S. does"...
This to me is merely another campaign to indoctrinate people into believing that every country, including the U.S. should be part of a One World Government, where a group of people will have knowledge, oversight and CONTROL over all the nations in the world.
There are some things that should really be a secret, but only things that REALLY have to do with national security, and not the excuses the government, and in fact all governments are doing the same, which end goal is to restrict freedoms and have more control, which in itself the changes the Obama administration is doing is towards making the U.S. part of this One World Government so many other U.S. presidents have also talked about.
You think the people who wrote that article have in mind a different goal from that of the rich elites?... No, they all are proposing a One World Government.
