The Death Of Transparency


You've all seen the Hollywood movies where the NSA, CIA, FBI and INTERPOL are hot on the trail of the world's most wanted fugitive with a kazillion satellites, spies and black ops personnel. Using every known form of technology and super secret gizmo known to mankind (and of course, those only known to them), they slowly tighten the noose around our good guy, hero fugitive... Will he avert their evil, ever tightening web, their deadly drone missle, their ability to sever him completely from both real and virtual worlds?

Actually- this aint no joke. The Obama admin is going after Wikileaks cofounder Julian Assange (he who made public Manning's Collateral Murder Video) both guns ablazing! We're talking kidnap, rendition- whatever it takes! They want his ass and they want it bad. And  they have more human rights negating  tools, "laws," and weaponry on their side than even W touted previously. This two faced, compromised, son of a bitch deluxe who promised us a more transparent government has only further tightened the noose around an already beaten, demoralized and somehow still Hoping citizenry. Whistle blowers are now the ultimate evil of evils, and he's out to punish each and every one to the max- he's not cutting any backroom deals here, he won't bargain his already sold out soul on this one. Uh, uh- this one's for keeps. Obama has finally found something he won't compromise, something he truly believes in- his prerogative to silence those whose truth can influence without money.

That's pretty much how I see it.

Ditto, this behavior is very disappointing. I thought Obama would walk the talk.

I never expected much, not much at all- but never expected this...
