Compare and Contrast
Senate Condemns Iraqi Prisoner Abuse

The Hyperbole:

"On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked, 'Who would prefer that Saddam's torture chambers still be open?'" said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. "Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management: U.S. management."

The Reality:

Tortured screams ring out as Iraqis take over Abu Ghraib

Note these paragraphs from the article:
"The witness said that even in the thieves' section prisoners were being treated badly. "Someone was shouting 'Please help us, we want the human rights officers, we want the Americans to come back'," he said."

"And Khalid Alaani, who was also picked up in Ramadi suspected of involvement in Sunni terrorism, said: 'We preferred the Americans. We asked to move with them to Baghdad airport because we knew the treatment would be changed because we know what the Iraqis are. When the Americans left everything changed.' "

So why would Sen. Kennedy say such a thing ? Because for him and those like him that put Party before country the real enemy in the global war against terrorists is George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove and 53% of the American people that put them in power.
