You’ve heard the arguments:
- If we audit the Federal Reserve (which has violated the Federal Reserve Act and other laws), that is a “line that we don’t want to cross,” and it would be “problematic for the country”, according to Tim Geithner
- If we indict those who committed torture (which violates U.S. law and the Geneva convention), then the U.S. will face a terrorist attack, according to a group of senators
Doesn’t this sound a wee bit like the old protection racket scam?
“We wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt, now would we?”
