Despite of all wishes to the contrary, whatever good intentions that may remain, the incompetence and mismanagement, the lawless prosecution of the war, the torture and rendition, our cavalier disregard for civilian casualties, collateral damage and basic civilian infrastructure, the hiring of third world citizens to fill the ranks of the US Armed Forces. The tolerance of severe criminal behavior (to include murder and torture) by no bid contractors, all of these things and more, there is none that can compare with the betrayal of trust to the rest of the world by the American people in the name of defending a sitting president or seeking bipartisan solutions with the perpetrators of the crimes.
