James Steele: America’s Mystery Man
A 15-month investigation by the Guardian and BBC Arabic reveals how retired US colonel James Steele, a veteran of American proxy wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua, played a key role in training and overseeing US-funded special police commandos who ran a network of torture centres in Iraq. Another special forces veteran, Colonel James Coffman, worked with Steele and reported directly to General David Petraeus, who had been sent into Iraq to organise the Iraqi security services.
That the BS level can be more than head-high even as politicos gabble on about democracy being dropped on Iraqis by the hour is rather amazing. Most half-intelligent critters would’ve said ‘there is some shit I will not eat,’ but our freshly-enriched politicos just eat it and keep going.
Bombing’s for their own good, dontcha know?
“24/7/365, a bomb’s falling somewhere to keep you alive.”
It’s a Good Thing all our politicos guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity aren’t locked up. In spite of all the new prisons built to hold pot-selling criminals in for victimless crimes, there wouldn’t be enough cells, even if we turned out those patsys. So it goes.
