In What Moral Universe Is This Acceptable? Clinton, Cruz, Trump, and Child Refugees

Democracy Now: "She's Baldly Lying:" Dana Frank Responds to Hillary Clinton's Defense of Her Role in Honduras Coup

The echoes of Chile, Allende, Pinochet are strong. It seems likely to me that Clinton's mentor and friend Henry Kissinger was consulted on the Honduran coup, and perhaps the CIA helped bring it about, as well.

The Guardian, today: Trump, Cruz aides advised Guatemalan candidate vowing televised executions.

Remember all those child refugees on the US southern border? Remember? Three of our major Presidential candidates contributed to making them refugees.

The Guardian: "Flee or die:" violence drives Central America’s child migrants to US border.

In what moral universe is this acceptable? For the USA, Clinton is far and away the best candidate. But as far as I can see, she ought to be up on war crimes charges, right beside Kissinger. And Trump and Cruz, given the chance, would likely do even worse.
