Obama's Support of Suleiman Should Be The Top Story Among The So-Called Left In America Today.
Please read this article and ask yourself if you wouldn't be outraged if Bush and Cheney were supporting Suleiman today? Don't you think the left blogosphere would be on fire right now if the same scenario were occurring under a Bush Cheney regime? These are important moments on so many levels. Perhaps most important for us to watch and learn who will demand sanity, human rights, liberty, and who will avoid it in silence, denial or spin themselves into dizzying new lows trying to avoid the crux of the matter at all costs.
No single story, or lack thereof, among the center and left blogosphere sums up why I am both no longer a Democrat and demonstrates why I sincerely believe our system is completely broken. Who among our countries leadership is expressing outrage at Obama's support of Suleiman? I suspect it's less than a handful among 536 leaders in the White House, Senate and House today. How and why anyone would make excuses for someone who thinks support of Suleiman is somehow reasonable or a good idea, no matter how bad the options is just beyond me.
Sociopaths, torturers, don't stop of their own accord. They wont suddenly respect borders or rule of law out of the kindness of their dark little hearts. Leaders like Bush and Obama will someday bring it home unless we utterly reject them for hiring such behavior abroad now.
Where's the outrage, where are the droves of self-respecting individuals abandoning the Democratic party in shame and disgust today? What will it take?
