If these massacres of Afghan children, rationalized as potential terrorists, do not make you ashamed of being an American, citizen, then nothing will!

That’s it, two replies. Truly, we are a fucked up people.

There are many articles of importance which receive scant comments. I would like to think it is a case of overwhelming degredation and simply too many abhorrences to absorb in this “crazy” planet we reside, rather than apathy.

People accuse Presidents of war crimes , but the problem is that these Presidents work in guildlines with the support of Congress and in effect consent from the people.

If true----it’s not terrorism----THESE ARE WAR CRIMES! If they lined up kids or anybody and executed them it is a war crime.

Then there was a video of Special Forces killing a teenage POW and Trump pardoned the killer.

I only saw this on DN and here—the real issue is why isn’t this story front page news???

Hey Afghanistan, apparently we didn’t get the message when the trade towers were leveled. Feel free to take out as many U.S. buildings as you see fit.
I guess we don’t know when to quit poking a pointy stick at people.
Will we ever learn?

The same reason this isn’t:

Trump’s recent acts of trying to bring the troop home, suing Facebook and Twitter if they continue editing, and trying to lower drug prices have met with little news coverage and lots of industry fight back. He is not an obedient globalist which is the reason why almost the entire media on a daily basis featured negative stories about him and no criticism on Biden, a candidate with dementia…but obedient.

This is oh so CIA; the Mafia has more integrity. The South Vietnamese government with the help of Uncle Sam tried this; it didn’t turn out too well, they are history.

I knew a special forces vet; who said he hated doing CIA missions. For one thing they violate the special ops rule of leaving none of their people behind. With the CIA, if things go sour you just never existed.

Truman made two huge mistakes. The first nuking the Japanese when they wanted talk surrender; and the second creating the CIA. The latter he acknowledged was a mistake at the end of his term. Kennedy wanted to smash them into " a thousand pieces"-they smashed him.

Because the Fourth Estate is the obsequious, fawning parasites that are the mouth piece for the Fourth Reich. Only front page news if it fits their nefarious agenda.

Unless your name is Drumpf. Tax avoidance, not death.

Truman knew he had really screwed up when they assassinated Kennedy, and wrote an Op-Ed in the Washington Post one month to the day of Kennedy’s killing. He spoke about how the agency had gone beyond their intelligence roll to become operational, and called for them to be restored to their original role, or be terminated. The piece ran in the morning edition, but was pulled for the afternoon edition (WP owner Philip Graham was pro CIA). The story of all of this in the link below in Truthout, reprinted from Consortium News writer Ray McGovern, an ex-CIA senior analyst, who’s job was to give Presidents their daily intelligence briefings when he was at the agency.
