A Torture Inquiry

July 6, 2010

Hello loyal readers- I hope everyone had a lovely 4th of July, whether it was a holiday (because you’re state-side) or a regular Monday (everywhere else in the world).  I participated in drinking beer, going to a demolition derby, and watching fireworks.  I think that the majority of the people at the demolition derby were all those “real ‘mericuns” Bush deux and Ms. Political Celebrity Palin keep going on about.  It was quite a collection of folks, to be sure.

Today is a short post, expect a longer one later this week, but I just wanted to bring your attention to an article I found on the Guardian this afternoon, because chances are you aren’t going to hear a lot about it in our mainstream media.  I would love to be wrong, but with a media that doesn’t seem to be bothered by the fact that wanna-be Speaker Boehner has absolutely no governing plans should the unthinkable occur in November, I won’t be holding my breath.

New Prime Minister David Cameron announced that there will be an inquiry into Britain’s role in torture and rendition since 2001.  Amazing.  And responsible.  And a sad reminder to us the complacency our current administration is demonstrating with the prior administration by not undertaking similar investigations. 

Keep in mind this is on the heels of the release of the Bloody Sunday inquiry.  Responsible governance indeed.
