daver | Every U.S. soldier takes an express and solemn oath to "support and defend the Constitution." That oath, however, is a sham because the troops do not support or defend the Constitution. Instead, when it comes to war the troops follow another oath they take - to obey the orders of the president, and they do this without regard to whether such orders violate the Constitution.

Cole offers an overview of the system, and Bogira relates the daily happenings in an urban criminal courtroom. more... 0 Comments
