So I have avoided pointing out the histeria in Dick Durban's speech on the Senate floor, because it was TOO easy. But now, since I am alluding to it in another article, I felt it appropriate to bring any lagarts out there up to speed. Below is Durban's speech with my comments in italics. Durban is quoting from an FBI report that the FBI can find no record of… to point out that our soldiers are treating the terrorists like the Nazis would… …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. John Stewart answered this one brillantly on the daily show. He pointed out that chaining someone to the floor so that someone had to crap on themselves would have been the nicest thing the Nazi's had ever done. He went on to taunt that Nazi prisonners would have rejoiced at "Shackles Day" On one occasion, the air conditioning ( AC is something our troops do without in the deserts of Iraq ) had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. This happens across America every day… wives made to shiver by their husbands turning the AC down too low… perhaps this is where the military torturers learned this vile technique On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees… Didn't these guys live in the Desert? Temperatures in Iraq reach 120 degrees in the summer while in Afghanistan, where most of the Gitmo detainnees are from, it can reach 124. 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. Oh my goodness, loud rap music! That certainly parrallels the gas chambers and mass graves of the Nazis. — Seriously though, was this like Snoop Dogg or 50 Cents? Because that would make a difference. 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. — Dick "Tough on Terrorism" Durbin, Patriot UPDATE: The FBI "report" (it is now rumored to be an email) has been discredited… anyone having memogate flashbacks?
