Senate Minority Whip - What a Dick (Durbin)
So, what has become yet another liberal mouthpiece (Time Magazine) publishes a classified log of interrogations. These outlined the determined effort to get vital intelligence from the 20th would-be 9-11 hijacker, Mohammed al-Khatani, by using such gestapo-like methods as extended isolation, sleep deprivation and being awakened in the middle of the night for questioning. Oh yeah, Christina Aguilara music.
Add to that 3-square proper islamic meals, a Qur'an (Koran) and all necessary time and gear for prayer. This man, who aspired to assist in the murder of over 3,000 innocent people, has turned extremely useful intelligence while being exposed to such "inhumane" tactics.
Cut to DICK Durbin. The second most powerful and influential voice in the minority party of the Senate - hence a huge national figure and legislator. This Senator from the great state of Illinois took it upon himself last Tuesday to react to this news by comparing Guantanamo Bay to Nazi Concentration Camps and Soviet Gulags (among other things).
"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime -- Pol Pot or others -- that had no concern for human beings."
Okay, so here's a scorecard of murders for all four of these terrible places:
- Soviet Gulags: 15 - 30 Million
- Nazi Death-Camps: 6 Million
- Khmer Rouge Pol Pot: 2 Million
- U.S. Guantanamo Bay: ZERO
In my view, this is nothing short of aiding and abetting the enemy. Senator Durbin, like so many others on his side of the aisle, has joined the ranks of the treacherous. No doubt Howard Dean has called to congratulate him.
I can only hope that the good people of Illinois wake up to this outright slander of their own sons and daughters in uniform.
