Daniel Ellsberg: "We're in a dark time . . . . "
Daniel Ellsberg talks about the end of habeas corpus, a Republican-controlled Congress that has abdicated its Constitutional responsibility to provide oversight, and an unrestrained President who is practicing sadistic authoritarianism.
In this short excerpt from a speech given by Ellsberg, he reminds us of what we've known since before the last national election in 2004: The Bush administration has been engaged in the torture of detainees (Abu Ghraib), illegally, and now the Bush administration has the legal cover of Congress to continue to torture.
We, the people, can't be bothered to protest the actions of what is being done by our government in our names.
