What is the worst thing you could possibly do in our society? The universal answer for everyone in our society would be anything involving harming a child. Everyone that is except the military brass at the pentagon.
According to a 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation, over 250 military and civilian personnel used a credit card or Paypal to purchase kiddie porn from foreign sources. You read that right. Employees that make their living off of your tax dollars were downloading kiddie porn while on the clock. According to this article, http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_upshot/20100903/us_yblog_upshot/pentagon-declined-to-investigate-hundreds-of-purchases-of-child-pornography 9 of the 264 employees that downloaded the porn have Top Secret Sensitive Compartmentalized Information security clearances. That is the highest security clearance you can possibly have. What is the Pentagon’s reaction to this, in a word nada.
Of the 263, 212 were not investigated at all. According to documents obtained by the freedom of information act, the investigations were closed due to different priorities. The investigator’s main job is to weed out traitors, not stop kiddie porn. What planet do the people who work for the pentagon reside on.
If I use my work computer to download kiddie porn, I am fired. The same goes for everyone else on this planet except people who work at the pentagon and for the department of defense. They literally can do anything they want! They can lie about why we kill people and why we go to war. They can lie about where your tax dollars go. They can even lie about their people downloading kiddie porn and no one seems to care.
We are so full of fear in this country that we just blindly run to these people to protect us. We don’t care what they do or how much money it costs, we just want to be protected. As long as they say they are protecting us, they can literally do ANYTHING. It is insanity and it will never end until we the people stand up and say enough.
General Mccrystal was just cleared of any wrong doing this week. This is the guy that was in charge of our troops in Afghanistan and trashed President Obama in Rolling Stone last year. Here is an excerpt from that article:
“In private, Team McChrystal likes to talk s- about many of Obama’s top people on the diplomatic side. One aide calls Jim Jones, a retired four-star general and veteran of the Cold War, a ‘clown’ who remains ‘stuck in 1985.’ Politicians like (John) McCain and (John) Kerry, says another aide, ‘turn up, have a meeting with (Afghan president Hamid) Karzai, criticize him at the airport press conference, then get back for the Sunday talk shows. Frankly, it’s not very helpful.’
This all in Rolling Stone and he is brought back in after a year of “teaching” at Yale. What all this tells me is that the fox is clearly guarding the hen-house. Obama is not in control of this mess. There is no longer a Commander-In-Chief. A bunch of unaccountable military yahoos are running our foreign policy and they delight in thumbing their nose at our elected officials. Afterall if any politician says anything about it, they just have their defense contractor buddies pull their funding for their next campaign. So everyone plays ball because if they don’t, you can bet their opponents will get tons of cash.
Clearly the system is totally broken. When the military has zero accountability, democracy is always an afterthought. Look at what is currently going on in Egypt. The military that took over is now jailing bloggers and killing protestors. Corrupt leaders are only part of the problem. You can bet if we were to ever rise up, the military would be right there using live ammo on unarmed crowds because that is all they know. They kill. It is their job. It is time we took our country back from these thugs. The only way to do this is through non-violent non-cooperation. There will be terrible losses in that struggle, but how much longer will we allow them to soil our name and steal our tax dollars. What do they have to do to make us finally say, enough?
