I was just flipping channels on my TV a few minutes ago and stopped when I came to a report being aired on my local ABC affiliate here in south Jersey, which showed an except from what I presumed to be one of the Sunday political talk shows, in which senator Richard luger was putting what I can only term a positive spin, not only on the latest wave of violence in Iraq, but on the latest allegations of rape of an Iraqi girl and the subsequent murder of the girl and her entire family as well.
Mr. Luger talked about how the US is making significant progress with regard to the violence and killiings in Iraq (delusional much?) and when questioned about the recent rape charges simply said they were “troubling” and immediately launched into a rah-rah speech about we’re doing the right thing over there. My mouth dropped open!
I’m so disgusted by what I just heard that blood is pounding behind my eyeballs right now. The report was in progress when I came to it, so I hope someone has the interview recorded or can tell me where I can find it. I just need to confirm that I actually heard what I believe I did and am not jumping to conclusions.
What I’d like to know is what the Hell is wrong with these people? Are the republicans so totally blinded by party loyalty that they’ll find a way to justify and dismiss even the most evil of acts? How long will this administration get away with saying white is black?
