SENATOR DURBIN SAYS THEY'RE NO DIFFERENT THAN HOLOCAUST DENIERS:

No Gitmo torture, Senate panel told (Rowan Scarborough, July 14, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

A military investigation of interrogations at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, found no torture occurred, but one high-value al Qaeda operative was subjected to "abusive and degrading treatment" when he was forced to wear a brassiere, do dog tricks and stay awake for 20 hours a day.

"We looked at this very, very carefully -- no torture occurred," Air Force Lt. Gen. Randall M. Schmidt testified yesterday before the Senate Armed Services Committee. "Detention and interrogation operations across the board ... looking through all the evidence that we could, were safe, secure and humane."

At least with the Nazis it was the torturers who were cross-dressers.

It wasn't an interrogation, they were merely seeing if he could meet J Edgar Hoover's requirements for a job as an Arabic interpreter at the FBI.

Director Mueller has demonstrated that being a patriotic American who speaks fluent Arabic is not in and of itself sufficient for the post.

Well those poor guards at Gitmo and Abu Graibass simply were making up for what they missed by not attending private boarding schools.
