Foot + Mouth + Democrat = Durbin

Hat tip: American Thinker
Senator Dick Durbin (Moonbat - IL) again shows demonstrative proof the the left is detached from reality:
When you read some of the graphic
descriptions of what has occurred
here—I almost hesitate to put them in
the 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

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.
He's complaining because the climate control wasn't to the prisoners WISHES? The music was played too LOUD? And then his final assertion is that we would be forced to think that this was a result of Soviet gulags or Nazi death camps. No, Durbin, you little sociopath - I, armed with a firm grip on reality, can differentiate. Lets see if you can.

Torture? or Torture? or Torture?

How does abu Ghraib measure up to that? Or GITMO? You want me to believe that US Soldiers turning an A/C unit off is TORTURE? I didn't even have A/C until last year! My neighbors blare their music too loud and I'm supposed to think of it as actual TORTURE? The fact that some dickhead pulled his hair out isn't convincing evidence when you take this into perspective.

Someone needs a reality check...Senator.

UPDATE: I forgot to include this little gem.
Polls show that Muslims have positive
attitudes toward the American
people and our values. However, overall,
favorable ratings toward the
United States and its Government are
very low. This is driven largely by the
negative attitudes toward the policies
of this administration.
Muslims respect our values, but we
must convince them that our actions
reflect these values.
Where? I wanna see these polls!
