Senate Condemns Iraqi Prisoner Abuse

There's our senate, taking a courageous stand on a controversial subject! I have been unable to sleep for days wondering whether the Senate would be for or against prisoner abuse. And unanimous no less!

If it were just 100 pompous fools staging a festival of sanctimony it would be annoying. No, the inimitable (an increasingly intolerable) Teddy Kennedy insisted on vomiting this bile soaked sentiment:

"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."

Does this pathetic excuse for a Senator, ever think about what he is saying before he spews forth these despicable statements? Does any Democrat have the character to stand up and denounce this man when he makes statements such as this? What those soldiers did was indefensible, but to compare their actions to the unspeakable torture and mutilation that was routine under Saddam is grossly offensive. Just as the soldiers involved should be held responsible for their actions, Teddy Kennedy should be held accountable for his irresponsible, repugnant rhetoric.
