    Great ‘toon, Ted. On the other hand, I can’t help but wonder if wars are won & lost on whose mediocrities are marginally more competent. If that’s the case, we’re doomed…

    Don’t worry, folks. The spying won’t stop because no one wants it to. Rest easy. Or not.

    Mr Rall complained that the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” lied when it said that torture had been instrumental in the killing of Osama. But the movie was just repeating the official White House version, sort of.


    The US has never, and can never torture anyone, it says so in the Constitution. If the US government uses electrodes to the genitals or thumbscrews, or the Chinese Water Treatment, that’s just ‘enhanced interrogation’, NOT torture, ruled perfectly legal by Executive Order, Congressional Resolution, and the Supreme Court.


    Now that Snowden has revealed that the US reads all e-mail. and the AP has revealed that the US knew about a possible planned plot to blow up an airliner, the terrorists have started using couriers (according to the New York Times), and the only way to find these couriers is first, to round up anyone who is turned in to US forces by one of their thoughtful enemies for a few $ thousands (median income about $15 per month) and then subject these couriers of terrorist information to ‘enhanced interrogation’ until they confess. There no proof or evidence that is as irrefutable as a confession under ‘enhanced interrogation’.


    But think of the thousands that have to be spent rounding up these couriers and subjecting them to ‘enhanced interrogation’, when, had it not been for Snowden and the AP, the terrorists would still send e-mails and SMSs which are automatically collected at no additional expense to the US.


    These traitors have cost the US money, and the US is so broke that it is threatening to default on sovereign debt in its own sovereign currency, something that has never happened since there have been sovereign nations and sovereign currencies.

    Remember, the terrorists want to destroy our freedoms! If we destroy our freedoms first, that means we win!

    Well at least it isn’t the 10,000th “drone” cartoon from Rall. I’m getting pretty sick of seeing those!

    If you go against the govt you will not have it easy. “Zero Dark Thirty” was just another pro war pro torture pro imperium kind of movie. Not as over the top as “Triumph of the Will” but someone is getting help that way.

    @Debt Free

    False comparison, your only kind. Drones are murdering people who have not done anything to us. But on the bad side they have survivors who swear vengeance against the USA. So this is a weapons generator for the Empire builders.
