Circumventing Democracy To Commit Torture

Circumventing Democracy

How easily the democratic process can be circumvented!

And no Deep Throat to leak "enhanced interrogation techniques" to the Washington Post of the NYT?
Time to cultivate those inside sources.

In fact our custodians of democracy in the three branches of government, are least likely to uphold it.

It takes All the People All the Time to safeguard Democracy.

May I also add that the US is least qualified to lecture any other sovereign nation-state on Democracy, or engage in any activity outside of its borders, to promote it.
