No Rest for the Wicked

Well, the Bush Administration is at it again. As part of their Domestic Terror Agenda, they're blocking bids for compensation by former American Hostages of the Iranian government.

But last week the State Department objected when Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) tried to address the issue in a House bill that would maintain sanctions against Iran for its links to terrorism, forcing the lawmaker to withdraw his proposal.

"We have 52 of our finest Americans who were held hostage," Sherman said. "They go to court, and you know who appears against them? The State Department."

Awesome, huh?

They did the same thing to US soldiers detained and tortured at Abu Ghraib during previous wars. Why? They didn't want to start a precedent. What does that mean? They don't want Iraqi's we've tortured to come to us looking for a handout either. That is the moral low-ground if you ask me. We should be compensating torture victims. Especially those we torture.

Pretty awesome of the administration, isn't it?

Read the article I linked to. It has some meaty stuff about the Bush Administrations Hypocrisy Agenda on the second page.

It seems as though the State Department has been busy, proving the old adage that there really is No Rest for the Wicked.
