Presently Derailed

The phrase "going off the rails" has been repeatedly used in the wake of the just released torture reports that implicates the C.I.A. in brazenly violating U.S. laws and international conventions. Though true, what's also going off the rails is not looking at present-day national or localized policies, such as the arbitrary, indiscriminate and reckless armed drone policies that are also immoral, a lack of accountability (and being ordered to do something illegal, as "Nuremberg" showed, is not a good defense), the militarization of police forces, and generally speaking, in not cleaning house by democratically and thoroughly changing the government from past and present-day incumbent "one-party" rule.  The nation is presently derailed.
