The Beacon’s Light Has Burned Out

There used to be a time when the United States stood for something.  When the U.S. Constitution meant something.  After WW II, there were trials in both Germany and Japan about the way the Nazis and the Imperial Command treated both citizens and captured enemy soldiers.

Hence, the Geneva Conventions were born.

We have lost our way.

It was the first time the camps’ top commander testified at a Guantánamo military commission. Rear Adm. David B. Woods said he had a team of Defense Department contractors examining confidential, privileged attorney-client mail for “safety, force protection and good order.”

Reading attorney-client confidential/privileged mail?  Beyond the pale.

What have we sunk to ? ? ?
