The Therapy Sessions
Tuesday, May 11, 2004
Good old Teddy...
Teddy Kennedy can always be relied upon to make an ass out of himself:
"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.' "
Well Teddy, your Arab friends - ripping a page from their 14th century public relations playbook - have decided to go on a charm offensive:
An al Qaeda-linked Web site posted video Tuesday of an American man in Iraq speaking briefly before being beheaded by his masked captors.
The Abu Gharib scandal shows Americans at their worst: minor physical and psychological torture, similar to a bad hazing incident in a college fraternity. For that, the perpetrators will endure national shame and some probable time in Leavenworth.
On display on Al Jazeera are the people we fight, proudly displaying a degree of depravity to which Americans will never sink.
Once again, America is urged to follow rules that the Arabs ignore.
After viewing this murder, my faith in the US and its cause is restored.
We are fighting the right people. At the right time. And in the right place.
This war is the most important war we have fought since World War II, and we must win it.
Ted Kennedy can go to hell.
