Something I don't understand - RE: wikileaks/U.S

Hi all,

Last night as I was watching the late night/early morning news I learned that wikileaks had released content on Guantanamo Bay detention center, to which official spokespeople downplay the occurrence trying to convince people that the reports of torture were just speculation or untrue allegations (or some crap). However one of the inmates that made claims about torture sees this release as evidence...an inmate who was released.

Detention facilities in Australia aren't any better, one of ours was pretty much totally destroyed by residents after claims they were abused by Federal Police. The matter of illegal immigrants/refugees is a touchy political issue in Australia with the two major parties holding different stances on how to deal with it. Whatever the policy is now, it isn't working.

Also in the news was the escape of prisoners in Afghanistan...where smug U.S officials say the area is corrupt.

But wait...weren't wikileak cables that caused a massive stir last year just "things everybody already knew" like tension between the USA and Russia?

Why aren't these spokespeople treated like Julian Assange when they say things in front of cameras like areas in Afghanistan are corrupt?

  1. I dont know why justice does not work. It's probably the same reason why evil dictators don't have their car blow a tire and run then off a cliff like what happens to normal people. Random accidental death never happens to those who need it most.

  2. I agree with Jeremy. Corruptions does run deep. We can't trust government. Guantanamo Bay sickens me to my very core.

    Also. That picture is so true, it makes me sadface =[

  10. It's pretty bad how all these things are happening all around the world and most of what you hear on the news are sometimes really very accurate. It's just unfortunate that we can't know more because of the suppression of news.
