This is fun. An Italian judge has order the arrest of CIA agents in connection with a kidnapping of an Egyptian Imam. This is evidence that the global community is backing away from the American Holy War Against Terrorism.
“Our belief is that terrorist suspects should be investigated through legal channels and brought to a court of law - not kidnapped and spirited away to be tortured in some secret prison,”
Yep. One cannot fight terrorism by becoming a terrorist, yet that is what our country has become in the eyes of the common global citizen. Governments are slow to change, but when enough of the world’s citizens state their outrage at human rights abuses and psychological warfare by the Americans, those bodies must follow. Expect to see more anti-American backlash in the next few years while our Moron-in-Chief remains doggedly on his path.
I don’t pretend to hope that what a judge in Italy does will have any effect on our administration’s Unilateral Policy of Defiance, at least not more than a quiet chuckle. Our collective arrogance is beyond such paltry displays. No, we’ll continue to bully our way and commit atrocities in the name of democracy, continue our tailspin of deceit and defiance.
After all, America was built on the attitude of “no-one is going to tell me what to do.” We have all kinds of “rights” in America, even the right to be wrong.
