Honduras probe 'quashed' by US authorities? Brad Will investigation too?

Is this what happened to those in the US Government who did speak up about Brad's murder? Their inquests quashed.

What's happened to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt)? Though he was not exactly an courageous or outspoken - let alone principled - voice for accountability.

He urged that another investigation - besides the one by Physicians for Human rights which pointed to Mexican government-backed paramilitaries - be conducted, though we saw no need for it. And when that 'independent, expert' investigation by fmr. RCMP officers - who didn't speak Spanish, didn't interview witnesses, and then put out a cover-up report, which parroted the Mexican government's story - was completed, we stopped hearing about Brad Will from the Senator.

Was the Senator happy with the cover-up report by 'experts' recommended by the Canadian Embassy in Mexico? We don't know because he didn't say a word about it while, based on it's false allegations, an innocent man rotted in prison for 16 months.

Is Senator Leahy (D-Vt) happy with the current course of the investigation into Brad's murder by the new Governor of Oaxaca, Gabino Cue Monteagudo? On December 1st, 2013, it will have been 3 years since the governor took office. On October 27th, 2013, it will have been 7 years since Brad Will was murdered in broad daylight.

I am disgusted by the laid back response of our government to this murder of a US citizen.

Those who share my outrage that a person - and our friend and family member - has suffered this fate prepare to express your outrage. The seventh anniversary of his murder should not pass in silence, while 'our' government that snoops on every single communication - foreign and domestic - pleads unable to demand - let alone obtain - justice.

Prepare. I'm in. Let us (all) know . . . or pleasantly surprise us.
