Well, here Fox is apologizing for torturers by claiming that some other people do bad stuff, too, so what's a little rape, water boarding, and abuse of children when those people are the same color as the other, unrelated people doing bad stuff?|
Thursday update: the pictures from Abu Graeb prison are disturbing. They have rightly provoked outrage. Today we have a picture -- aired on Al Arabiya -- of an American hostage being held with a scarf over his eyes, clearly against his will. Who's outraged on his behalf?Oh, this makes me mad to no end. I mean, really, really pissed off. And they have the gall to call themselves "patriotic." They have no idea what that means.
It is important that we keep the Abu Graeb situation in perspective. The story is beginning to live on its own momentum. The facts of the story may develop into the need to do much more in the days ahead. For the moment, however, the focus appears to be changing to finger pointing within the administration and how it plays out as an issue in the presidential campaign.
