...to keep US safe...really. And anyone who disagrees must be a crazy person.
In America Bizarro World Today, John Kiriakou is in prison not for torturing anyone, but for revealing information on torture to a reporter. Thomas Drake, a former NSA official who provided classified information about mismanagement at his agency to a reporter, endured a four-year persecution by the government that the federal judge in his case called “unconscionable,” before prosecutors dropped all 10 felony charges and settled for a single guilty plea on a misdemeanor.
For potential whistleblowers there is a new directive which forbids employees from discussing “intelligence-related information” with a reporter unless they have specific authorization to do so, even if it’s unclassified.
Forget about prosecution or accountability for the application of torture, the "Justice Dept." has ruled out any possible prosecution of those who followed orders they were told were legal.
Looking ahead to 2016, Hillary won't change a thing: "What difference does it make?"
They will keep you safe, if you are willing to forget about your rights, and anyone who disagrees must be a crazy person.
