Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Obama - George W Bush on steroids?

A couple of quotes from an interesting article in the Guardian:

"Obama did not reverse what Bush did, he went beyond it. Obama is just able to wrap it up in a better looking package. He is more liberal, more eloquent. He does not look like a cowboy," said James Bamford, journalist and author of numerous books about the NSA including 2008's The Shadow Factory.

 A clause was added to the National Defence Authorisation Act that had such a vague definition of "support of terrorism" that journalists and political activists went to court claiming it threatened them with indefinite detention for things like interviewing members of Hamas or WikiLeaks.

So...

Let's see...

I have donated money to WikiLeaks.   Does this mean those insane self-appointed Rulers Of The Universe, the Yanks, can now "rendition" me to some god-awful place and keep me locked up indefinitely, or torture me till I recant my assertion that Obama is an insane megalomaniac who's lost all touch with reality?

Well, I contacted the CIA via their Office of Public Affairs website, and they replied, saying they had no interest at all in you; that they suspected you were just trying to score a free holiday on a tropical island at their expense; and that, in summary, you were an insane blogger who had lost all touch with reality. :-)
