Obama has never been charged with human rights violations even though he, as commander in chief of the US armed forces, has legal and moral responsibility over the now infamous torture sites at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib. Neither were George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair ever charged with committing acts of torture or other human rights violations.
Our resistance must begin with our rejection of this order, a morally courageous turning away from the bribery of a system that defends its wealth and privilege at the cost of its humanity.
