    Subject: Consequences
    Date: Feb 24, 2008

    The issue here is not Henry Kissinger. The attrocities commited in the name of the anti-cummunism war are too many to ignore (Plaza de Mayo, Via Grimaldi, East Timor...). The issue is the lack of oversight by the democratic process. Kissinger lied to Congress and concealed information. There was no consequence to this. Negroponte did as well, and so did Oliver North and the list goes on and on. This is a rule rather than an exception and there are no consequences for this. Does this mean they are above our democratic system? According to the analyst who reviewed the de-classified CIA files, the agents who reported on operation PBSUCCESS lied to the president. How can elected officials make educated decissions when they are being lied to? Kissinger argues that if the International Court were recognized it would be open season on the United States. I would agree with that except if they are not even accountable for lying to our elected officials, where are the consequences for abuse of power? Are we to accept that there should't be any? There have to be harsh consequences for lying to Congress.
