1. Private Contractors under investigation for abuse
I wonder how many Iraqis were tortured who were not part of any resistance and just got caught up in sweeps of neighborhoods?

Rumsfeld will not resign just because people
make a political issue of it.

3. Lindsey Graham: Have you seen the video, Mr. Secretary?
No, no, no. Rummy hasn't read the report, hasn't seen the video.

Sen. Graham then said, "I want to prepare the public, because the worst is yet to come."

Jesus.

Lindsey has either seen the video, or has talked to someone who has.
He knows. He knows that the shit hasn't even begun to hit the fan yet.

Thank you for preparing us, Sen. Graham. You're more of a Democrat than Holy Joe is, that's for sure.

There will be an awful lot of reservists getting righteously pissed off if no officers or no contractors get nailed on this. Rummy knows that, too.

He's referring to the video. Holy crap.

I've never liked Graham, but damn if he isn't doing a good job up there.

"Have you seen the photos? Have you seen the video? Did it dawn on you when you saw the photos, what was about to happen?"

79. Unfortunately we have a Constitution that requires civilian control....
over the military. We cannot permit the military to try themselves in situations such as these. They answer to us - through our representatives. That is the law.

can't answer any direct question. Doesn't know who's in charge of the Contractors. Franks is answering all his questions.

Graham up: Saying more photos coming and worse to come. General Smith, when did you see the photos...when did you see the photos? Graham being stuff...that's a new one. Myers didn't want the photos on ABC but had not seen them. Myers said, many people in the Pentagon knew about the photos but he had not seen the photos. They felt that maybe the photos would not be pubished...Karma..Karma.

78. This is bullshit
Edited on Fri May-07-04 12:56 PM by No2W2004
The only thing Rummy is upset or sorry about is that those damn pictures got out. He didn't give a damn about the report in Jan. It became a problem when the pictures were gonna be out.

82. OK, so let me get this straight. According to Rummy,
the fact that the abuses were taking place wasn't a problem.

The fact that there was VISUAL PROOF that the abuses were taking place is a HUGE problem.

I mean if you listen to him that's what's obvious. He's only upset or agitated when he talks about the fact that he didn't realize there were pictures out there. The fact that this was goign to be a huge PR problem is the ONLY THING HE CARES ABOUT.

He is PURE EVIL.

:argh:

94. Yup....
He's more upset that they got caught. I've always got the feeling that Rummy could give two-shits about the hearts and minds of the Iraqis (and the Americans too).

84. Rumsfeld really thinks the problem is that the photographs were
leaked. It hasn't hit him yet, and may never, that the problem is the abuse. He is really stuck on how this would not be an issue but for the public release, which makes him one sick person. Isn't this kind of justification an indicator of a psychopath?

"Oh my. There are just soooooooooooo many things . . .
. . . thousands of things. I don't take notes on what I do." We just don't know what we should tell the pretzeldent.

For gawds sake. If this didn't rate as something to tell his pretzeldentness . . . what the hell would? BTW, I don't believe they didn't tell him. They did. Rummy's just trying to pretend that there is a chance that he didn't tell him. After all, he doesn't take notes.

TYY

91. Dole: the actions of a few don't reflect an evil in the rest of us..
Edited on Fri May-07-04 12:55 PM by Postman
(paraphrase)

couldn't the same thing be said about the 911 hijackers?

Yet the US invades Iraq with innocents killed, based on lies, because of the actions of a few.

97. Elizabeth Dole sucks.
She is going to spend her 6 minutes reminding everyone about the wonderful military leadership! LOL!

I guess she hasn't realized that it is a fucked up mess over there because of the leadership.
