Justice Dept. Breaches Trust with Troops

Thanks to Rob's Blog for writing a blog that highlights how the Justice Department has undermined a lawsuit against Iraq filed by 17 American former POW's and 37 POW families from the first Gulf War.

Now that U.S. government is implicated in a policy condoning torture, there is no interest in letting Americans who were tortured by Saddam Hussein use international courts to address their grievances.

Rhetoric about the U.S. securing justice and freedom for people around the world rings especially hollow when we vigorously deny it to the people who sacrifice the most for our country.
