Hey, Abu Ghraib Isn't Auschwitz,
It's Way Past Time To Get Over It!

How much longer is this "Prison Abuse Scandal" story going to last? I would say until November, minimum. It's pretty clear that the media and the Democrats intend to pump this thing until they are successful in crippling the White House, the Pentagon and our efforts in Iraq. Those who never wanted us in Iraq to begin with are gleefully seizing upon this as their opportunity to get us out of Iraq and to get Bush out of the White House in the process.

Do they have any idea of the damage they are doing, or are they so callous they would endanger the American people to achieve their ends? Do they hate Bush more than they love their country? After what we saw on 9/11, I am stunned that anyone, much less people who are in positions of responsibility could the deny the incredible danger posed by Islamic terrorism here, and around the world.

Victor Davis Hanson is so right, we are defeating ourselves in ways that our enemies could never imagine. Every day this psychotic self mutilation is allowed to continue, we willingly hamper our own efforts to do what needs to be done. Our enemies, on the other hand, are liberated by our internal struggles.

We have more important things to worry about than a handful of disturbed young soldiers acting out homoerotic fantasies and dressing Iraqi prisoners in women's underwear. Try those responsible, throw the book at them and be done with it. All of this self-critical introspection is very admirable, but there are untold numbers of people in this world plotting to kill us, American civilians, at this very minute. Let's pull our collective heads from our collective anal canals and focus on the task at hand.
