So I Sat…..

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I sat in my garden with today’s NY times as I had done just before the Iraq war started but this time the headlines read  —

SENATE PANEL FAULTS CIA OVER BRUTALITY AND DECEIT IN TERRORISM INTERROGATIONS –
REPORT REJECTS CLAIM ON HUNT FOR BIN LADEN –
FAILURE OF OVERSIGHT IS OUTLINED, AGENCY DEFENDS PROGRAM –
PORTRAYING A BROKEN -AGENCY DEVOTED TO A FAILED POLICY –
AT BIRTHPLACE OF FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT, A PROTEST TORCH IS PASSED

Finally finally…..  I smiled as I looked into the sky I heard –

My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing, land where my father died….. from every mountainside let freedom ring.

We are watching the system of US democracy in action – checks and balances….

Thank you, Senator Diane Feinstein.
