The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

Unacceptable

I'm going to try and be coherent, but I'm so upset I'm having trouble writing.

I just turned on my PC at home and read:
Leading Human Rights Groups Name 39 CIA ‘Disappeared’ Detainees .

The article tells us:
In the most comprehensive accounting to date, six leading human rights organizations today published the names and details of 39 people who are believed to have been held in secret US custody and whose current whereabouts remain unknown. The briefing paper also names relatives of suspects who were themselves detained in secret prisons, including children as young as seven.
(bolding mine)

As young as seven? This is not what the US is supposed to be. This isn't us, or rather it wasn't us.

If you read the article you'll see we're not talking about some bogus, no-name radical left wing organizations. We're talking Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, etc.

Almost as disturbing is the fact that while something of this magnitude is made public today, what have we been hearing about ad nauseam? Paris Hilton is out of jail. The current administration is allowing unconscionable human rights abuses to occur and the media is feeding us Paris frickin' frackin' Hilton.

Yet there are people who still claim the mass media is a "tool of the left"! Bullshit.

What more can Dubyuh and this administration do to destroy everything this country is supposed to represent? How can anyone still support this administration?

I don't know how this is going to end, but it has to end.
