USA Today: Man steals millions and walks free! Another man who exposed war crimes is sentenced to death? CORRUPTION!


No comment. Just a great story from the daily must-read site, ZeroHedge.

Guest Post: Assange Or Corzine?

Assange Or Corzine?
Priorities are a bitch.
The United States won’t prosecute Corzine for raiding segregated customer accounts, but will happily convene a Grand Jury in preparation for prosecuting Julian Assange for exposing the truth about war crimes.
From the New York Times:
A criminal investigation into the collapse of the brokerage firm MF Global and the disappearance of about $1 billion in customer money is now heading into its final stage without charges expected against any top executives. After 10 months of stitching together evidence on the firm’s demise, criminal investigators are concluding that chaos and porous risk controls at the firm, rather than fraud, allowed the money to disappear, according to people involved in the case.
But nobody knows how much dirt Corzine has on other Wall Street crooks. Not only may Corzine get away with corzining MF Global’s clients’ funds, he may well end up with a whole raft of seed money to play with from those former colleagues and associates who might prefer he remain silent regarding other indiscretions he may be aware of.
But the issue at hand is the sense that we have entered a phase of exponential criminality and corruption. A slavering crook like Corzine whostole $200 million of clients’ funds can walk free. Meanwhile, a man who exposed evidence of serious war crimes is for that act so keenly wanted by US authorities that Britain has threatened to throw hundreds of years of diplomatic protocol and treaties into the trash and raid the embassy of another sovereign state to deliver him to a power that seems intent not only to criminalise him, but perhaps even to summarily execute him

The shyster Corzine even admitted to taking the money in his testimony in front of Congress. Laughably, he said the money he stole wasn't taken "improperly".

America is a very corrupt country.

Andy "In Japan" is right. Here is more proof: Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta pronounced Bradley Manning guilty. Technically, he can not get a fair trial after this so has to be let go (regardless of one's opinion of his "crime").

Scott Horton was talking about this (and the Assange situation) with a member of the Icelandic parliament. She expressed some shock upon learning what those Obama/Panneta said publicly about Manning, even though she is aware of other US govt crimes.

Most Americans will completely ignore the real crime here, say "it's a complicated issue" and go back praying to Saint Obama for a mortage bailout (aka welfare checks). The US is going to get even more corrupt w/ a population like that!

Tell your Japanese friends to visit Canada, not the US. Visit the US only to see how everything that Mike, Andy, Russia Today, LRC, etc. say about it is 100% true.

My personal belief is the what is so upsetting in the US, isn't the corruption involved, but how blatant it has become in the last few years.

Although Canada has many positive traits compared to the US, it definitely has some negative ones. I know of no other country with the possible exceptions of N. Korea, or Turkey, that rival or perhaps surpasses, the level of nationalism of the US.

It seems many Canadians are remiss to remember how many offensive wars that their nation has fought.

Also, with the possible exception of the UK, I can't think of many other countries that are more tightly bound to the Uncle Sam's war machine.
