‘How do you expect the M.P.'s to get it straight ...’:
Two good quotes from Ted. The first
came during a prison-abuse hearing in which a general and Pentagon civilian gave conflicting statements about command at Abu Ghraib. Ted: "How do you expect the M.P.'s to get it straight if we have a difference between the two of you?" ... The second
is in reaction to the beheading of Nick Berg. Ted: “This vicious attack is a painful new reminder that al-Qaeda is determined to strike and kill Americans.'' ... Now I know Ted has said some damn silly things lately, i.e. war plots hatched in Texas etc. I also know the Bushies will come at anyone and everyone who dares to quote Ted favorably. But anyone want to dispute the substance of the above quotes? Not that they’re overly profound. ...
What did the president say last year about terrorists concentrating their efforts in Iraq? ‘Bring ‘em on’? No, that’s Kerry line. But it was something like that. Well, we now have a top al-Qaeda murderer, who used to be cornered in Afghanistan/Pakistan, beheading Americans in Iraq instead of Afghanistan/Pakistan. This is called ‘success.’ ...
The Catholic church
is condemning abuses and cover ups. The Catholic church. ... FYI: WaPo
continues its top-notch coverage of Abu Ghraib: A general is pointing the finger in the direction of two other Army generals in Iraq.
