  4. Change? I don’t think so. Same old secrets and lies. We are still in Iraq and in Afganistan and oh how we love to torture. I had to snicker when I heard today that the troops will be in danger if the photos are published. Couldn’t they come up with something better than that. If the troops are in danger from that why not bring them all home? The joint chiefs and the CIA have gotten to you Mr. Obama. Next will you authorize Mr. Cheney to be charved in granite? Wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
