A WikiLeaks cable shows that when Spain considered a criminal case against ex-Bush officials, the Obama White House and Republicans got really bipartisan. In its first months in office, the Obama administration sought to protect Bush administration officials facing criminal investigation overseas for their involvement in establishing policies the that governed interrogations of detained terrorist suspects. A “confidential” April 17, 2009, cable sent from the US embassy in Madrid to the State Department—one of the 251,287 cables obtained by WikiLeaks—details how the Obama administration, working with Republicans, leaned on Spain to derail this potential prosecution.
First, and most importantly, the theological point- putting your hope in people- in any people- is foolish and ultimately sacrilegious. And second, and less importantly, the political point- boy all those who voted for the ‘Change’ candidate must feel pretty foolish about being duped by the falsehood and hypocrisy which is only now coming to light.
Politicians are like leopards- they can’t change their spots, much less anything meaningful like policy when policy feeds their power and bolsters their sense of self importance. Change? Ha. The talk of fools and liars.
Others may be dismayed at WikiLeaks but I’m glad all the filthy depravity is being exposed to the light of day. As Jesus himself declared, nothing done in secret remains in secret and what is whispered in the corner will be shouted from the rooftops. Shout away WikiLeaks, shout away.
