    After 6 years creating a tome that would challenge a weight lifter at a cost of millions the people get a conclusion everyone already knew that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, Tenet, Rice and CIA agents and contractors were involved in War Crimes for 6 years and the U.S. Congress knew it, so much for the Rule of Law and checks and balances.
    All the babble about this very expensive investigation is a waste of time and money since Holder has already stated he will not prosecute these war criminals; the worst criminals in U.S. History.
    The question is; "Why did the U.S. Congress bother creating this proof of war crimes if they had no intention of prosecuting these war criminals?!"
    These soulless degenerates have been bragging about their war crimes since they committed them because they knew that America's legal systems had become as corrupt and degenerate as they are so all those Americans who believe in right and wrong must begin burning those useless law books until these war criminals are prosecuted and hung!

    Connie, yeah certain people get away with everything; but again like some members say : "It is all "god's will" and all your "crimes" are forgiven if you donate enough to your church; Bush and Cheney etc. have a reserved place in "heaven" for sure. I guess the "devil" blesses the USA, not any imaginary "god" thing I guess.

    I don't see the God connection on this one. It is more about greed and the power of the Military-Congressional-Industrial complex. The neocons who sold this torture campaign and outsourced the dirty work to contractors to keep their hands clean have profited handsomely from this war and other wars. Their brains are wired differently, and the various neurons in their brains that are in charge of "empathy" do not have the synapses (connections) that greed and the lust for power have. People ask who approved all of this? I point the finger at one man: Dick Cheney, and he does not strike me as a religious man.

    I agree with you Schmidt, Dick Cheney is not religious man, As many of our leaders both Democrats and Republicans fall into this category , greed. ,power, a false sense of superiority that these individuals crave, all could be greatly reduced if we (the voters) use the power of the Ballot Box

    Your response reminds me of the famous Jean-Paul Sarte quote: "When the rich wage war, it's the poor who die."

    It is interesting how you talked about their brains being wired differently. I fully agree with your point. The far right has hijacked the Christian religion and militarized a growing number of individuals who are convinced that we are witnessing the end of days.

    Dick Cheney is not religious and if he is then he is a walking contradiction of everything Christians supposedly stand for, but he fully understands how to use it as a tool to 'control the masses,' if you will. That's a toxic combination and one that worries me as we move into the future. If so many 'ordinary' Christians can be brainwashed into believing that God wants us to spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year on our war machine while watching millions of homeless people go hungry on American streets then I honestly don't know what can be done about it. Religion has always been used as a tool to suppress and force people to bend to a Governments will, but it's beginning to get out of hand in this country and I'm a little worried that it's going to be very difficult to correct that.

    It's not the religion that encourages people to do the worse to society, it is the "People" who use the religion as a crutch to prop up their evil agendas around the world. If world leaders would only subscribe to the heart and believe in the scriptures of the "Whole Text", than we would see a better world in harmony with humanity. No, it is the greed, lust, and power that people seek to intimidate and enslave others for their personal folly of doing whatever they like in promoting evil. It's not the religion, as a correction, while there may be sources of religion that prove to be counter to humanity, most all God-centered religions are not the problem. As religions, which encompasses agnostic, atheist and anti-God belief groups, these are where people need to be careful of the "hidden agendas" that sway public reactions. Even though there are many sides to this problem of who do you trust, religion by far exceeds all in mercy, forgiveness and patience for peaceful society. Religions do more good in the world than what may be perceived as bad. I am not without believing religions have there problems because religion is mankind and God is mankind's obedience to His Glory and advice. People will always do what they desire because of their desires because of "Free-Will". But God's Will is forever standing. What will be, Will Be by Alpha & Omega, the Beginning & the End. It's not the religion, it's the people in how they use the religion, wrongly, of course.
