This never happened. Hey, look, over there…social security needs strengthening!
In the wake of yesterday’s disavowal of any sort of Defense Department responsibility for anything and everything relating to that ol’ Abu Ghraib fiasco from way back when, we encourage our readers in Missouri to become more intimately acquainted with their very own Senator Jim Talent (R). Look closely, folks…let the idiocy soak in. Bask in the impressive display of anti-logic. Get sodamnedclose that you’re tempted to hit the guy in the face with a bunch of rolled-up newspapers dating back to last year, hoping he’ll maybe take that opportunity to finally see what exactly introduced the term “Abu Ghraib” into the public lexicon:
“I don’t need an investigation to tell me that there was no comprehensive or systematic use of inhumane tactics by the American military, because those guys and gals just wouldn’t do it,” said Senator Jim Talent, a Republican from Missouri. “Everything about the culture and the training in the military and at home works against that. That’s why the terrorists are attacking us — because we’re not the kind of society that would do that.”
This has nothing to do with anything, but Sen. Jim Talent is up for re-election next year, Fall 2006.
