Why i'm only scared of the US and not terrified

because there are still millions of people like Bob Park living there. The current What's New:
WHAT’S NEW Robert L. Park Friday, 8 Sep 06 Washington, DC

1. MINORITY REPORT: CIA HELD DETAINEES IN SECRET FOREIGN PRISONS. I
thought for a minute I was watching Tom Cruise, Chief of the Pre-Crime
Division in Spielberg’s dark futuristic thriller. No such luck; it was
Commander-in-Chief George Bush: “Were it not for this program, our
intelligence community believes that al Qaeda and its allies would have
succeeded in launching another attack against the American homeland. By
giving us information about terrorist plans we could not get anywhere else,
this program has saved innocent lives.” Either that or they made it up.
The phrase “saved innocent lives” was used 11 times in the speech delivered
before families of terror attack victims. “The United States does not
torture,” Mr. Bush explained. “It’s against our laws, and it’s against our
values.... However, if prisoners stopped talking, the CIA used a set of
alternative procedures.” How’s this for an “alternative procedure”: inform
prisoners of the charges, treat them humanely, try them openly to expose
their crimes to the entire world. This is America.
