The US military continues to demonstrate to the world how we support democracy, liberty and civilized values. This latest outrage is worse that Abu Ghraib (if possible), in that Afghan civilians have been murdered in cold blood by US military personnel.
The terminally corrupt, lying powers that be may tell us that such is "the action of a few bad apples"... but as with Abu Ghraib, the orders to abuse, beat up and torture prisoners most likely came from the top of the chain of command at the Pentagon, and, as usual in the military, a few grunts were scapegoated for following these illegal orders, and paid for it severe penalties... ie shit rolls downhill. This shows the heart of Washington DC culture at work....

Naturally, the US corporate media thug enablers ignore these atrocities... hey, its less attention on the kind of trivia and crap that the majority of the slack-jawed, doe-eyed public are so addicted to.
How many people here support this kind of thuggery? Probably nobody, barring a couple of the usual suspects. How many power brokers in Washington DC support this? Probably most of them, (privately on the golf course, or in their exclusive boys clubs).
