Meet the new boss -- worse than the old boss (and I mean Saddam Hussein), and oh, yeah -- you'd better count your fingers after you shake his hand.

No good deed goes unpunished, not in this administration.

Whistleblowing about theft, arming insurgents, and outrageous ripoffs of government money (more theft) gets results -- the person who points it out gets crushed...


One after another, the men and women who have stepped forward to report corruption in the massive effort to rebuild Iraq have been vilified, fired and demoted.

Or worse.

For daring to report illegal arms sales, Navy veteran Donald Vance says he was imprisoned by the American military in a security compound outside Baghdad and subjected to harsh interrogation methods.

There were times, huddled on the floor in solitary confinement with that head-banging music blaring dawn to dusk and interrogators yelling the same questions over and over, that Vance began to wish he had just kept his mouth shut.

He had thought he was doing a good and noble thing when he started telling the FBI about the guns and the land mines and the rocket-launchers — all of them being sold for cash, no receipts necessary, he said. He told a federal agent the buyers were Iraqi insurgents, American soldiers, State Department workers, and Iraqi embassy and ministry employees.

The seller, he claimed, was the Iraqi-owned company he worked for, Shield Group Security Co.

“It was a Wal-Mart for guns,” he says. “It was all illegal and everyone knew it.”

So Vance says he blew the whistle, supplying photos and documents and other intelligence to an FBI agent in his hometown of Chicago because he didn’t know whom to trust in Iraq.

For his trouble, he says, he got 97 days in Camp Cropper, an American military prison outside Baghdad that once held Saddam Hussein, and he was classified a security detainee.

Also held was colleague Nathan Ertel, who helped Vance gather evidence documenting the sales, according to a federal lawsuit both have filed in Chicago, alleging they were illegally imprisoned and subjected to physical and mental interrogation tactics “reserved for terrorists and so-called enemy combatants...”


I think this could arguably come under the heading of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Some call it -- as the old right wing rabid book was titled -- some call it treason.

I'm one of them.


But there's more. Lots more. Read on at the site.

So when I call this administration a bunch of thieving, murdering, conscience-less sociopaths, I don't think it's hyperbole at all -- I'm NOT exaggerating.

These sleazy back room thieves who talk about the values of the Old West?

Right -- in the Old West, every one of them would be hanging from a rope somewhere out on the range.

They really don't want the Old West's form of justice.

For that matter, they don't want ANY form of justice. Just plunder (and guess who's getting plundered?)

These people make the heretofore historically monumentally corrupt Grant and Harding presidencies look like Boy Scout Jamborees.

Fuck them all and the tainted Supreme Court Justices and the Go-Along members of congress (Republican and Democrat) they rode in on.

Despicable scum.
