13. I was just thinking about him today while writing about Bradley Manning. And I was also

thinking of Pat Tillman and Kevin Benderman and many others who began to see the corruption and the lies and how it is those who tell the truth who seem to suffer rather than being rewarded, while those who lie and cheat and violate all of our laws, torture etc. seem to thrive. What does this say about this country?

We SAY we respect those who are honorable, who take their oaths seriously, but not one person who has done that, including the one who revealed the torture at Abu Ghraib, has ever been honored by this country.

They have gone to jail, or committed 'suicide' or have died under strange circumstances as Tillman did.

Thank you for remembering the real heroes. It really is up to the people.
