How immoral does one have to be to support a system that regularly kills people who are later found to be completely innocent?

Is Google now an arm of the U.S. State Department?
On 3/18/15 we received a note from Google Adsense informing us that all ads for our site had been disabled. Why? Because of this page showing the horrific abusescommitted by U.S. troops in Iraq at Abu Ghraib.
This page has been up for 11 years. During all that time Google Adsense has been running ads on our site – but as Washington gets ready to re-invade Iraq, and in bombing, killing, and abusing more civilians, they suddenly decide that their “anti-violence” policy, which prohibits “disturbing material,” prohibits any depiction of violence committed by the U.S. government and paid for with your tax dollars. This page is the third-most-visited page in our history, getting over 2 million page views since it was posted.

John McCain meets with known kidnappers and sends them US arms and tax money in 2013.
I have established the fact that Kayla was kidnapped by the FSA, and they had the sole opportunity to kidnap her. It is a fact that Syrian civilians never had access to weapons. The only people who had weapons prior to spring 2011 were the police, army and security forces. However, once the Syrian revolution began, the weapons came pouring in from Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The FSA had access to the best weapons, all supplied by the United States of America, their payroll checks coming to them from the King of Saudi Arabia.
However, as much money as you give the typical FSA fighter, he just wants more and more. This is why the FSA have repeatedly kidnapped wealthy people and demanded ransom for their release. This has become a well documented side income for FSA. It has been proven that the FSA sold other western kidnap victims to ISIS. The motivation of the FSA in selling Kayla Mueller to ISIS had nothing to do with Radical Islam, or their hatred of USA, even though USA is their sponsor in Syria, it only was about money. Money makes the world go around, and FSA greed is what killed Kayla Mueller, among others.

“I stopped telling war stories at these events because no matter how bad and awful it sounds, you can still see the look in kids’ eyes that say, ‘That is the rite of passage, that is how I become a man. I have to go there and live through that horrible shit to know that I am an adult.’”
“A lot of people were fighting us because they did not want to be occupied or because they had family members who were hurt or killed and they wanted to get some sort of vengeance. By the end of my tour, it was really hard to justify killing them. We should not have been there in the first place.”
“I think about all of these soldiers coming out of the U.S. military and helping them get jobs and education and hearing about what they aspire to do and be in the world. And I wonder about all of the Iraqis, Syrians and others that we killed in that country and what they aspired to be.”

Lynching in America makes the case that lynching of African Americans was terrorism, a widely supported phenomenon used to enforce racial subordination and segregation. Lynchings were violent and public events that traumatized black people throughout the country and were largely tolerated by state and federal officials. This was not “frontier justice” carried out by a few marginalized vigilantes or extremists. Instead, many African Americans who were never accused of any crime were tortured and murdered in front of picnicking spectators (including elected officials and prominent citizens) for bumping into a white person, or wearing their military uniforms after World War I, or not using the appropriate title when addressing a white person. People who participated in lynchings were celebrated and acted with impunity. Not a single white person was convicted of murder for lynching a black person in America during this period.
