Death Squads are unAmerican

There was a time in my younger days when we all shared the same assumptions about our country.

We're the good guys who won World War II without stooping to torture and by respecting the Geneva Convention. Our parents told these stories with pride. But now the Cheney-Bush Administration wants to repeal rights of Habeus Corpus won in the fracken medieval days!

We've known for months of reports that US-trained death squads may be active in Iraq. This should be the final act of stupidity and ideological incompetence that denies any benefit of the doubt for waging a surge, escalation or anything above looting to this crowd.

Time chose to address this issue in their own understated and deferential way. AlphaLiberal is thankful for the attention to the issue. No doubt this deserves mention to the rest of the nation in some type of news magazine. hint, hint...
