Dirty Wars by Jeremy Scahill.
Just finished watching the docudrama tonight. I don't know if "disgusting" or "repulsive" in any way approaches the sense of horror left in my
gut - but "resignation to utter hopelessness" may be the worst part of it.
I don't know what angered (and disheartened) me most -- The sheer disregard of those on Capitol Hill for their responsibility to the
populace/citizenry/Law-of-the-Land...or the masses celebrating the news of Osama bin Laden's demise.
How can they get away with - "we'll tell you if we want to..." and "...who gives a damn about the law?"
How can a government enforce law/s...but does not have to abide by them?
Years ago I was abruptly introduced to the notion - "it takes a criminal to catch a criminal"...which was the rationale used in law enforcement (and
other) circles to justify using criminal tactics...to catch their prey.
How can the criminal also stand as accuser, judge and executioner?
This is not new to me... It has simply revived an unsettling depression I don't know what to do with.
Thanks so much!
