Today a low level soldier was sentenced to three years in prison for her role in the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal. How dumb as a country are we to think that justice has been served to those who are truly responsible for this latest installment in America's sordidly shameful national history.
It would be the same as heaving a sigh of righteous relief that a lowly prison guard was punished for the crimes committed at Auschwitz, while his boss Heinrich Himmler continued
to sit smugly in the comfort of his fortified Berlin office creating yet more atrocities. Why are we so unquestioningly supportive of our own guilty Himmlers, that we dutifully work two days a week for in DC?
In the photo above a baton-wielding US soldier orders a naked detainee, covered in feces, to walk a straight line with his ankles handcuffed.
Your tax dollars at work.
This empire will not last too much longer.
