Three years of solitary confinement for PFC Manning before a hint of a trial.
Despite human rights organizations making complaints and demands. To the US, that is not torture.
Obama signed the NDAA section 1021 which provides for the indefinite
detention of US citizens with neither trial nor representation.
So they can stuff Snowden in a box for the rest of his life and say
it's perfectly legal, which by their legislation and interpretation, it
The US also said they wouldn't scramble fighters to get a
29-year-old hacker, then force down the plane of another country's
president for 12 hours, hoping to find Snowden on board, creating an international incident. Obama said he'd
protect whistle-blowers then arrested them all.

Obama said "transparency and the rule of law will the the touchstones of this administration."
Extra-judicial executions of US citizens suspected of terror or
terrorist ties! Fuck the rule of law or telling people about his kill
lists. Oops, kill lists, another reason to trust our executioner in
When they say they won't torture him, they mean we're planning to torture him. They say the opposite of what they fully intend to do, like all politicians.
Obama Promises, Including Whistleblower Protections, Disappear From Website
