    Anyone else notice how the defenders of the American realm want so badly to divert from the topic at hand, heaven forbid we talk about the most transparent regime in American history (not).

    That is certainly a real problem, especially on our A.M. radio.

    The real trick, however, is to take off the anti-American blinders long enough to compare ours against those countries that face similar terrorist threats or even just other countries in general.

    Hardly, for a Brit it's the equivalent of looking at your junk in a crazy mirror. Our little peter looks enoooormous in comparison with how bitty a little diddy it really is.

    That's all a bunch of BS. The US press is just as free as any in Europe. This is nothing more than a publicity stunt by the tiny French organization. They're using Snowden, Assange and Manning in attempt to gain publicity. Typical Euro sucking off the US for relevance.

    C'mon Eco, I'm sure you can come up with something other than ad homs. Try again, you never know, third time lucky?

    It's obvious. This little Euro organization is sucking off the US in attempt to gain publicity and support from the wackjobs that think treason against the US is free speech. They can eat a **** and die.
