Bush & Co. defend Guantanamo

We are apparently embracing freedom at the notorious prison camp, and Amnesty International’s report is “absurd.”

“It’s an absurd allegation. The United States is a country that promotes freedom around the world,” he said, adding: “We’ve investigated every single complaint against the detainees. It seemed like to me they based some of their decisions on the word of — and the allegations by — people who were held in detention, people who hate America, people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble — that means not tell the truth. And so it was an absurd report.”

Because they should have asked… him?

Cheney also weighed in.

“Frankly, I was offended by it,” Cheney said. “For Amnesty International to suggest that somehow the United States is a violator of human rights, I frankly just don’t take them seriously.”

…really? The United States isn’t a violator of human rights, ever? Also, when people are lying, don’t they tend to use words like “truthfully” and “frankly” repeatedly to try and convince their audiences that they’re telling the truth?

    our enemies, or those we accuse of being enemies, are not ‘human’, therefore they don’t have any “human rights”. DUH! get with the program.

    fertilized eggs, though, now those are the humans with the human rights!
