Sen. James Inhofe thinks it’s no big deal when the U.S. tortures people: “Many of them probably have American blood on their hands. And here we’re so concerned about the treatment of those individuals.” There’s just one inconvenient hitch: Up to 90% of Iraqi detainees arrested by mistake, Red Cross says.
It’s official. America has jumped the shark.
I don’t know if the nation’s jumped the shark, but Inhofe’s certifiable. In his cite for this story, Kevin Drum links back to Inhofe’s equally preposterous (if less morally bankrupt) claims about global warming.
Well, I’ve noticed that other bloggers have juxtaposed Inhofe’s claims with the Red Cross report.
