The tragedy of this is that we are not all surprised. Some of us are shocked and appalled, but not surprised. This is not the land of the free and the brave we saluted in school assemblies. This is the shadow world, the world foretold by Orwell. This is the seamy underside that underlies all war, that taints and poisons the future.
If I see the war criminals, Bush, Rove, Rumsfeld, Cheney, in prison before this generation passes, I will believe in America again.
