Excuse me, but ...

Glenn Greenwald writes:
... Barack Obama sent the bust [of Winston Churchill] back to Britain because "his Kenyan grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, was imprisoned without trial for two years and tortured on Churchill's watch, for resisting Churchill's empire."
Well I'm OK with that. Making a point about injustice is a worthwhile endeavor.

But, I have to ask, Obama. Is it only injustices to your father that matter? What about all those individuals that the US captured and/or kidnapped and imprisoned without trial and tortured for resisting US actions. This is still going on. The US is doing some of the same things that Churchill did? Haven't you noticed?

Great post, Obama pegs the hypocrisy meter yet again.
