Speechless

Sometimes I’m just speechless. First, read this, excerpt below.

The Bush administration is preparing plans for possible lifetime detention of suspected terrorists, including hundreds whom the government does not have enough evidence to charge in courts, The Washington Post reported Sunday.

As part of a solution, the Defense Department, which holds 500 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, plans to ask the U.S. Congress for $25 million to build a 200-bed prison to hold detainees who are unlikely to ever go through a military tribunal for lack of evidence, defense officials told the newspaper.

Then I want you to read the response of a fellow blogger. Boy, he sure sound angry, doesn’t he?

If we imprison people, forever, without a trial, we are no better than Saddam or Kim Jong Il or any other evil bastard. We lose any moral high ground we have ever had, and we prove our critics to be correct. There is no middle ground here. I am absolutely disgusted that this is even being contemplated. We are the United Fucking States of America, and we do not imprison people forever without a trial.

Another liberal? Nope, none other than Lee over at Right-Thinking From the Left Coast.

Sometimes its good to know the wingnuts can think for themselves.

  1. Welcome to Orwellica, where “freedom” is restriction, where “prosperity” is stagnation, where “morality” is fag-bashing. Where faith means more than the real deal.

  2. I just saw “Totally Bill Hicks” a couple of days ago: ten years on and nothing changed: Bush is still president and the USA is still in Iraq. He mocked the land of the free even then. It’s getting scarier every day.
