” 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.
