Here’s what Dick Durbin said, for the record:
(6-14) Durbin: “If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime–Pol Pot or others–that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.”
Columnist Phil Kadner has the quote in Daily Southtown. So does Sun-Times and Chi Trib. And needless to say, so does Aljazeera. It’s a quote read ‘round the world. Howard Dean should watch his back; Durbin of Illinois is coming on hard.
