    Thank you very much for posting this.

    I wish everyone with a “support our troops” sticker on the back of their car could watch the helicopter footage. Some of them, no doubt, would be cheering “our side” on, for the brutality has become, as Assange noted, little more than a video game and a source of bragging rights. A few viewers, one would hope, would be horrified. But guess what? They’re all too busy watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

    The quotes from U.S. authority figures are simply chilling. When disclosure of the truth is seen as “political warfare,” we have descended to a cognitive and moral nadir. The rest of the world is starting to see this, but we are not. What is it going to be like to be a citizen of the most hated country in the world? And who would have seen this coming just thirty years ago, when there was a more obvious Evil Empire to loathe?
