Overt ops
The bald obliteration of “due process” for the weak – starting with brown foreigners early in the GWOT Era, moving through dusky American men and uniformed American women of all races, now to the glaringly white Manning and distressed homeowners of any color – has paralleled the destruction of any system of consequences for elite malfeasance. Billions of dollars in Iraq funds can go missing; powerful officials admit to guilty foreknowledge of settled crimes; billionaires replenish their piggie banks at the Treasury after a bender; pliant agencies scramble to upend four hundred years of settled law so to legitimize outright forgery. But these twin trajectories aren’t ironic; they are the point.
