Vultures Row: Dear Mr. Durbin

Dear Mr. Durbin

Yesterday during a debate on the BUDGET, you said:

"When you read some of the graphic descriptions of what has occurred here [at Guantanamo Bay]--I almost hesitate to put them in the [Congressional] Record, and yet they have to be added to this debate. Let me read to you what one FBI agent saw. And I quote from his report:

On a couple of occasions, I entered interview rooms to find a detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor, with no chair, food or water. Most times they urinated or defecated on themselves, and had been left there for 18-24 hours or more. On one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. . . . On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night. On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room, and had been since the day before, with the detainee chained hand and foot in the fetal position on the tile floor.

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. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."


Go a head and spin this, but you can not with any moral credibility, claim that wet underwear and air conditioning is the same as:

The Killing Fields of Cambodia where 2,000,000 people were murdered

The Soviet Gulags where t is estimated that around 50 million were murdered between 1930 and 1950.

The Nazi Concentration camps of Hitler where an estimated 8 million people were murdered.

This is not the same. Using such despicable analogies only serves to show how desperate the left is. They can not win on ideas, they can not win at the polls so they go to the far left. When a liberal starts to loose an argument he has to either try and change the topic, confusing the issue, or he has to call someone a Nazi. It's wrorse than the Matt Damon puppet in Team America.

Prehaps the "poor unfortuanate victems" of abuse in the PRISONER OF WAR camp at Guantanamo Bay, might rather spend time in the Maricopa County jail of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
