WikiLeaks Bombshell: US Knew Arab Regime Tortured Citizens!!!

Wow. this is the big deal? And what was the US supposed to do if they investigated claims that the Iraqi government tortured its citizens? Invade? Yeah, I bet Julian Assange, the hysterical Left, and their Islamist allies would love that.

It's the problem with America haters like Assange, Chomsky, and Osama bin Laden: it's a worldview where America is always in the wrong, no matter what we do.

When we act, it's evidence of US Imperialism. When we don't act, it's evidence of the US not caring about brown people.

We're damned if we do, we're damned if we don't.

Which makes their underlying theory of cause and effect not a theory at all. First because it's not falsifiable. Second, because all affects are attributed to the same cause.

I think the part of the story that pisses me off the most is that Assange promised us last time he'd do a better job of vetting the documents in order to protect the lives of soldiers and civilians. So, what did he do? Gave al Jazeera complete access to them.

Yeah, I'm sure no one in al Jazeera would ever give that information to, say, their cousin Achmed in Fallujah.
