Senior US Democratic lawmaker offends Dutch counterparts with historical remarks (The Associated Press, October 27, 2007)

Dutch lawmakers who visited the Guantanamo Bay military prison this week said they were offended by a testy exchange in Washington with a senior congressional Democrat.

The lawmakers said that Tom Lantos, chairman of the House of Representatives' Foreign Affairs Committee, told them that "Europe was not as outraged by Auschwitz as by Guantanamo Bay."

Heck, they aren't outraged by their own ongoing Nazi practices.
