If you read anything today, read this post by Scott Harper.

He concludes:
Now comes the test of our democracy–will we close the door and walk away, or demand to know what’s been done in our name and hold those who guided any abuses to account for their misconduct? President Obama tells us there’s nothing to see here, just move along. But this will be a test of whether we have a citizenry worthy of that name.
How is the citizenry to act, if not through their elected representatives? And how would Congress act, hearings, special committees, a special prosecutor? Or perhaps impeachment, DNI Blair and President Obama can now both be seen as accessories after the fact.

But I fear the citizenry is not worthy of that name, they stand by silently as trillions of dollars are looted from them without even being told where the money went, why would they speak up about the torture of others? If you cannot or dare not speak up for your own interest, you won't speak up for others.
