the rich and powerful are not held accountable
there is no justice.
The only question is just how much can you get away with (depending on how filthy rich you are)? The answer is TOO MUCH.
Justice is a fiction. Random at best, and certainly not blind.
Benjamin sums up the sad predictable reality:
“Without a rigorous investigation into the alleged efficacy of U.S. torture, we’ll never know. A torture commission would have looked into this very issue. With Obama’s blessing, Congress could try to appoint a nonpartisan group of experts to carefully evaluate whether the torture program was an effective way to gather valuable intelligence or, as interrogators suspect, simply made desperate prisoners say whatever they had to say to make the pain stop, yielding a few gems among a flow of muck. But Obama hasn’t advocated a commission or any other vehicle to look into that, and today seems disinclined to do anything other than move on.”
