Seeing is Believing

The Associated Press
Lawmakers: Guantanamo Conditions Improve

There are a couple of choice quotes in the article.

"'The Guantanamo we saw today is not the Guantanamo we heard about a few years ago,' said Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Calif."

The IOpian View: Nor is it the Guantanamo you heard about last week Rep Tauscher. Notice this is a deflective technique that evades admission that Durbin was a bit over the top. So apparently somehow things have been fixed since a 'few years ago' so which Gitmo was Durbin referring to ?


"Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, is one of many Democrats who have called for an independent commission to investigate abuse allegations and have said the facility should close. She said she stood by that position, but acknowledged, "What we've seen here is evidence that we've made progress."

The IOpian View: This implies that something was wrong to begin with. Could be that Gitmo has been chugging along just the same for years and she has finally gotten off her ass to go down there and see for herself only to find reality appears nothing like the members of her party describe.

Now. If we could get Admiral Kennedy to sail the SS Chappaquiddick over to Irag and have a look for himself...
