True Lies – America The Forgetful Monster

So, I’m watching this week’s ep of Crisis and the anguished Chief Of Staff exclaims, anguishedly:

“THEY KIDNAPPED CHILDREN?? WHO WOULD DO THAT??”

And I just sat there and thought:

YOU WOULD. YOUR MURDEROUS GOVERNMENT.

You did that when you kidnapped children into Guantanamo and tortured them.

Really, the break between US TV / film and reality is fucking astonishing.
