The Injustice Of The Justice Department

I’m appalled but not surprised that the Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder is working assiduously to put Julian Assange and WikiLeaks “in the frame”. As a recent article in the Boston Globe states, “Justice Department officials have been struggling to come up with a way to charge Assange with a crime.”

This, of course, is the same Justice Department that has successfully struggled to come up with a way to ignore the crimes committed by members of the Bush administration against our Constitution, our laws and a non-aggressive sovereign nation. If ever there was a rogue government that violated our nation’s laws and core beliefs it was this bush-league bunch of troublemakers, and if we ourselves won’t shine the cleansing light of truth on their dirty deeds, then thank heavens there’s a WikiLeaks to do it for us.

At the end of the day, it will be deeds done in the dark that cripple our moral authority and make a mockery of our Constitution. Attorney General Holder will do us all a favor if he points his dogs in a different direction, pursuing those who, operating under a cloak of secrecy, used their positions of power to validate and legalize wide-ranging acts of criminal behavior.
