Instead of going after the crimes that have been exposed, authorities are going after the ones that have exposed the crimes instead. The general tone of most authorities is that the general public does not need to know these types of things – things such as:
The gunning down of innocent civilians and Reuters journalists
Iraqi security forces burning, beating, electrocuting, and raping helpless prisoners
66,000 civilians that were killed in Iraq
Clinton ordering for people to spy on UN officials
Obama Killing the Bush Torture Probe
US pressuring German to not prosecute CIA officers for Torture and Rendition
Germany caving in to US pressure
Yemeni President lying about US strikes
US Shipping arms to Saudi Arabia and then lying about it
India torturing Kashmir
UK training Bangladesh “Death Squad”
UK shielding the US with regard to Iraq probe
Pope refusing to cooperate in sexual abuse investigation
China behind Google hack
US plants spys in Pakistani military
US continues in Afghanistan even while knowing it’s not going to end well.
US knows that we are losing in Afghanistan and doesn’t pull out – endangering civilians, military, and other
This…along with many more is just a small glimpse at how our world governments care not for justice or upholding the law. It seems that perhaps the only ones that can be convicted of a crime are those who are not in positions of authority.
At what point will we begin holding our governments responsible and accountable for these illegal actions and stop ruminating on the people exposing them (wikileaks)? At what point is enough enough?
