ntil now, in America, it has never been a crime to create and fly an air balloon. Or even to fabricate a story which hurt nobody else.
But now that Richard Heiny has been put through the legal wringer for this non-crime it may become a crime in America, to blow your nose in a napkin.
At the same time, we have an ex-president and VP who are decidedly guilty of hideous crimes against humanity, not to mention treason; and by their own confession they brought America to a new low of moral and ethical standing in the world. And neither Bush nor Cheney have been brought to trial.
What is wrong with this picture?
The World Court in The Hague, The Netherlands, has indicted both Bush and Cheney. They are clearly guilty in the opinion of one of the country's most important trial lawyers: Vincent Bugliosi. Bugliosi is so convinced of their culpability, he wrote a book proving his assertion. And he spoke before Congress explaining his reasoning. And yet for some reason that nobody can figure out, Obama is shielding not only the guilty president and his partners in crime, but the equally guilty and complicit agents of the CIA who obviously took pleasure in torturing suspects at illegal holding centers.
All of this fits perfectly with the idea of mainstream media carefully directing the focus of attention for Americans to keep their eyes on. There is little doubt in my mind that the Sherriff's department which insisted on holding and indicting this innocent man was inspired by some big bucks under the table, from those whose interest it is to keep America focused on non-essentials while the real criminals sneak away.♦
