26.  They decided instead to put their careers ahead of people's lives.

That sentence is so simple,which is why I appreciate it so. (the triangulaters on DU have hundreds of words to exculpate them)

My husband and I have said the same in the last two days. I, however, think this was obvious during the cave in about habeas corpus. If anything was ever clear to me, it was then. Especially when I actually KNOW something about the prisoners being held in Guantanamo bay for years-being tortured-and many many of them innocent. How can you put your job over knowing that someone innocent is in hell right now without a chance of parole ever? That line applies to the soldiers too. For GOD's sake-they signed up for the NATIONAL GUARD-two weekends a month-to protect America-not fucking Iraq.

I don't know how they live with themselves. They think there is always tomorrow, but it's lives right this minute ending. I noticed there is something saying they are trying to amend the MCA just today. But Good Luck-their history shows they will not give very much to stop an innocent from being tortured or killed. I cannot imagine having a job and living with that-especially considering the lives of privilege they enjoy and then stomaching the florid language and high esteem they all have for each other.

Honorable is not a word I would ever throw their way.
