According to several media reports, a suspected terrorist at Guantanamo was forced to wear a bra, dance with another man and behave like a dog.
The Gods of Liberalism Revisited
The lie hasn't changed, and we still fall for it as easily as ever. But how can we escape the snare?

Gee, lots of drunken GIs I knew overseas (myself included, back when I was living for the Devil) did that from time to time--and weren't forced to!
Seriously, while such behavior (on the part of the GIs that forced the prisoners) might be classified as "unprofessional," I'm sure our POWs in Vietnam and in Asia during WWII would love to have traded "tortures" with the Gitmo prisoners.
And our guys who were POW weren't a bunch of regressives who went around intentionally blowing up innocent civilians.
Compare this "torture" of a terrorist to a terrorist victim in London (one of the fortunate ones who survived to see his family again).

With friends like Specter, who needs enemies?
From the NY Times:
WASHINGTON, July 10 - Senator Arlen Specter, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, suggested on Sunday that President Bush could name Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who is retiring from the Supreme Court, to the position of chief justice if it opens up.
"I think it would be very tempting if the president said to Justice O'Connor, 'You could help the country now,' " Mr. Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania and a pivotal player in any confirmation hearings, said in an interview on the CBS program "Face the Nation." "She has received so much adulation that a confirmation proceeding would be more like a coronation, and she might be willing to stay on for a year or so."
Both Mr. Specter and Mr. Leahy said they were familiar with an account of a meeting that two senators, one from each party, had had with Justice O'Connor weeks before her retirement, in which they discussed a campaign to elevate her if Chief Justice Rehnquist does step down. Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, described the same meeting to The Chicago Tribune last weekend, suggesting that Justice O'Connor had not objected. No one identified the senators.
"I did hear about it," Mr. Specter said, "that there had been senators who had made that suggestion to Justice O'Connor, and that the response that I heard was that she said she was flattered. That she didn't say no."
This RINO needs to do Republicans one single favor and just switch to the Democrat party.
