brucie,

they are human, too...


from your last clicky-"One sign of how badly the case was handled: the FBI publicly apologized to Mayfield, something the bureau almost never does. Mayfield appreciates the mea culpa. "I commend them for stepping up to the plate ... and admitting they made a mistake," he says. "I'm from the Midwest, and an apology goes a long way."


And now you can tell me how often OTHER countries have admitted they had made mistakes. I think that there is a bias against the US, in that we are held to a set of standards that no other country is, yest criticised for not treating all the other countries as our equals. If we are MORE RESPONSIBLE, then perhaps we should get the rights that go along with responsibility.
