"Go fuck yourself"
Vice President Dick Cheney, on the Senate floor, 2004
Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) called the U.S. treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay comparable to the inhumane tactics used by Nazi, Soviet and Cambodian concentration camps. Hyperbole is lost on Republicans when it is used against them. Durbin said he regretted his comments, which as On The Mark pointed out here, is not the same as apologizing for the content of what he said.
However, there are major issues with the way the U.S. is handling prisoners these days. If the U.S. government suspects one of plotting against it, one can be held indefinitely without legal counsel, which on that level seems comparable to the above mentioned concentration camps.
The point here is to get the Guantanamo Bay issue out of the newspapers and not attempt to solve the problem at hand -- typical of the Republicans.
