79. "(ii) gross mismanagement, a gross waste of funds, an abuse of authority, or a substantial and ..."
Edited on Tue Jun-08-10 01:24 AM by bananas
That covers a lot of shit, man.
What side are you on?

Seymour Hersch told us about stuff at Abu Ghrab that hasn't been prosecuted,
videos that were provided by whistleblowers.

Daniel Ellsberg has called for people to come out and blow the whistle on things they've seen.

When someone does wrong, they should apologize and make amends.
What side are you on?

edit to add:
Do you have a conscience?
Some people don't - I'm not judging you - some people don't.
