Liar, Liar, pants on fire

http://news.independent.co.uk/world/...p?story=650029

Bush has pledged to tear down Abu Ghraib. But the facility is actually expanding.

This disgraceful place should be shut down. I'm horrified and outraged. Suppose the French had rebuilt the Bastille?

Let `em go free so they can kill more Americans and their own people.

Why beat around the Bush? We have no intentions of releasing them, nor do we have any intentions of making them not guilty in a "trial."

Get out yer guns and kill 'em all!

What would you do with the American invaders in Iraq?

The ones who have used napalm to kill thousands.

If you vote Democrat, you hate America. It's as simple as that. I'd like to thank Herr Rove for pointing this out to us.

umm...hold them in a way compatible with basic human rights? I didn't know an abuse scandal and a huge public embarrassment for the American forces was necessary in preventing insurgents from "killing more Americans and their own people."

How is it we make such leaps of logic?

So you either torture them or set them free. These are our only choices?

Yeah. Put the people on trial for whatever crimes they've committed, and let those who've suffered at their hands decide on the best punishment for them.

But this sort of place doesn't really help matters, especially since America gets all upset when other countries do the same sort of thing. Consistency is good.

Uh, the original post suggested that Abu Ghraib be torn down, not expanded.

This has nothing to do with how insurgents are treated.

So then what did Bush mean by saying he was going to tear it down? Wasn't it due to the treatment of prisoners?

Bush was probably trying to be Reagan ('Tear down this wall, Mr Gorbachev'). And failing miserably, as usual.

Bush is a fratboy who likes to wear cowboy hats to remind the public of a President who played cowboys in movies. Pretty funny, when you think about it.
