Raven is outraged. Again.

“Get a load of this: in the newspaper they are quoting Dick Cheney’s reaction to the torture routinely applied to Iraqi prisoners by occupation forces.”

Okay, Rave, I’ll bite. What was his reaction?

“He said the important thing to remember is that the soldiers didn’t try to conceal that they were torturing Iraqis.!”

Oh my….Actually, I am not surprised. I suppose that’s why all the photos and videos of the torture sessions were made—so that the invasion forces could parade their hijinks in front of the international community?

“Hmmm. And I had assumed they made the videos to sell to porno distributors in the States. Poor misguided me….”

Nothing like a stupid cynical leader to establish the priorities.

Listen to this, Rave:

'"There is no question that these pictures … make our work much more difficult," Secretary of State Colin L. Powell acknowledged in an interview with Agence France-Presse news agency Friday.

"These images are very destructive to our foreign policy efforts," he said, including the effort to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.'

"Apparently, one picture is worth more than a thousand words. Powell seems blithely unconcerned with the fact that the pictures, the images were photographic evidence of aberrant BEHAVIOR." Raven is outraged.

Yeah--it's like the guy who murders his wife and then complains about the inconvenience of being caught. Being caught was a mistake. Killing his wife was not.
