Isn’t it amazing

…how much government data gets “lost” in one form or another, but that these circumstances are never to the citizens’ benefit?

Remember how the tapes of the CIA’s torture campaign were “destroyed” under suspicious circumstances, despite orders not to destroy them? It appears something similar has happened in the UK, where files on the UK’s role in CIA rendition efforts have been “accidentally destroyed.” I’m wondering if anyone can read that claim without rolling their eyes.

 

H.L. Mencken was right:

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself…  Almost inevitably, he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable.”
