The US government are appalled that Sattar Beheshti has been reportedly tortured and killed in Iranian prison. I agree, I’m appalled and disgusted, however I can say that without being a hypocrite because I have neither tortured nor killed anyone. I’ve never tried to harm someone because they have certain political views nor have I attacked whistle blowers. The US government on the other hand, particularly Barack Obama has been the most prolific persecutor of employees with a conscience. Bradley Manning is a perfect example of what the US government do to it’s employees who feel a moral obligation to reveal the truth, however embarrassing it may be. The British armed forces are strongly suspected of harming detainees whilst in their custody and I have no doubt that the US armed forces are even more complicit.
