    I thought you would show the links from El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Philipines, Vietnam, and all the other places we have delivered Corporate friendly dictatorships, or tried to. You know, just own up to some of our/cia scumbag operations.

    Own up? Well I'm not in the CIA so there's nothing for me to own up to. Nor did I suggest that the "torture" started with Bush. You did that. I don't mind a little waterboarding for the faithful. And some people in this world simply need killing.

    "Own up," because what our gov't does is done in our name. That would be your name and mine and Grandma's.

    I've spent a lot of time in Central America over the past 20 years and it's a very good thing the Communist dictatorships are gone. I'd hired a female architect at one point and her Nicaraguan parents had named her "America" in honor of the country that brought them democracy.

    The United States has done a lot of good things in this world and I'd hold there record up next to any other country. Don't believe all the rubbish people say about the country or the people.

    I like how we're the unauthorized persons. Yeah, all this national secrecy stuff is pretty BS.

    Ours. And we can't possibly allow the people of the United States to get a peek at all these secret documents... which mostly contain evidence of them reading our secret documents.

    This is the type of **** that happens when you expose this POS authoritarian government - you end up in China - The land where Mao is still held in extremely high regard with force and where Stalin is considered a comrade..
    Why is Snowden a patriot and not Manning?

    Are you saying we should water board the religious? Kind of extreme.

    The country has a reputation for defending freedom of speech, unlike our plutocratic dictatorship.
