The Insanity of Government Policy
In the name of “fighting Al Qaeda or associated forces” or those who “support” those bad guys, the U.S. government has authorized:
- Assassinating people anywhere in the world without due process or even a legal charge . . .
- including U.S. citizens living on American soil
- Torturing people . . .
- including Americans living on American soil
- Labeling virtually any American as a “terrorist“
In other words, the government has shredded our constitution and destroyed our freedom and liberties in order to fight Al Qaeda and associated forces.
Does that mean that American military and law enforcement personnel should arrest, indefinitely detain, label as “terrorists”, torture or assassinate those in D.C. who are authorizing the support?
Note: The U.S. also provides substantial military and financial assistance to Saudi Arabia, even though a 9/11 Commissioner and the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 say in sworn declarations that the Saudi government is linked to the 9/11 attacks.
