The denial is simply amazing. I don't know what Cheney is smoking but I gotta get me some of that!

I'm not mad keen on Amnesty, they are not above financial chacanery and the like, but they do not lie about human rights (they don't need to). T'be honest though, can anyone say they are surprised by Mr. Cheney's denial?

Thought not...

The bottom line on all of this is that, if the detainees were being treated properly, why is it so hard for the Red Cross to obtain access to them?

In addition, the mere fact that they have been detained for so long without due process, without any charges being brought, etc., is in itself improper treatment.

I remind anyone who believes that foreign nationals do not deserve the protections of US law that the Constitution refers to "the rights of the people" and "no person shall be", not to "rights of citizens" and "no citizen shall be". The point here is that a right is a human right, not a privilege of a member of the state. The Constitution does not state it explicitly, but I doubt they were depending on tricks to clarify the meaning. I would wager that they felt their meaning was clear.

Nicely done, Joe! The arrogance eminating from Cheney on this is simply amazing.

Allowe me to point out the plain bloody obvious: the American People, fed on news pap as they are, may believe this, but the rest of the world sees Amnesty International as being far more credible than the US government.

Think about that for a moment. Your country has squandered whatever moral credibility it had.

Thank you, Bush.

Wait... Amnesty International isn't part of the US government?

I'm shocked! Shocked, I say!

Cheney isn't in denial. He's a bald faced liar and it sounds like Larry King is on the payroll.
