Does Reflect Our Values...

All the damn politicians keep saying about the torture scandal that the actions of these people, " do not reflect our values" or that they are not representative of "the America I know." These statements are a load of bunk.

These acts do not reflect our ASPERATIONS. But they perfectly reflect our VALUES, because one's actions are always perfectly representative of one's values. The unctuousness and plain deception of these statements ABOUT our values, ring hollow to all who are they supposed to reassure. We need to act IN ACCORD WITH our asperations as a people by making all who are culpable pay a heavy price for their actions, all the way up the chain. Only then will our denials ring true.
