Obama and His Sickening Double Standard Justice

Obama's sickening double standard: If it's a crime committed by a government official serving in the Obama administration (or Bush administration), even torture in violation of US and international law -- no prosecution. For anyone else, especially whistleblowers who reveal to the American public any official US government misconduct, prosecute to the maximum of the law --

The Snowden Obama Amnesty Double Standard | MSNBC: " . . . we needn’t look back that far for more examples of the Obama administration “looking forward” on possible violations of the law when they’re done in the interest of the intelligence community. Obama officials leak to journalists all the time when they’re trying to shape coverage, but they’re only prosecuted if, like former NSA executive Thomas Drake, their disclosures anger the intelligence community. Obama’s intelligence chief, James Clapper, admitted to misleading Congress when asked a direct question by Oregon Democratic Senator Ron Wyden about whether the NSA “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.” It’s against the law to lie to Congress . . . The smart money is on Clapper never having to seek asylum in Russia to avoid prosecution. . . ."

Hope and Change? LOL!
