    Have you heard relating to this, or did the mainstream media perform a good job of controlling the storyline?

    A week ago a bi-partisan Committee found Leader Rose bush and former Secretary Rumsfeld DIRECTLY Accountable For WAR CRIMES?

    Senate Report Links Rose bush to Detainee Homicides Media Yawns

    http://world wide web.informationclearinghouse.info/article21478.htm

    “The guidelines that the Senate Military Committee all concludes were approved by Rose bush, Rumsfeld and many some of the best Rose bush authorities didn’t basically result in “abuse” and humiliating treatment, But They Are DIRECTLY — AND UNQUESTIONABLY — Accountable For NUMEROUS DETAINEE Killings. A lot of individuals deaths triggered by abusive treatment happen to be formally indicated as “homicides” by autopsies carried out in Iraq and Afghanistan …”

    (capital added for emphasis).

    The hyperlinks towards the review of conclusions can be found in this article:

    What moral ground will we have if as people we neglect to compel our reps to carry the crooks accountable. Shall we be much better compared to terrorists when we allow these crimes to visit unpunished?
