Strange Brouhaha

Friday, January 19, 2007


The new guidelines for the trials of the Guantanamo "detainees" allow for the use of hearsay evidence and coerced testimony, the last part of which is a polite way to refer to "stuff we tortured out of them." But it's okay, because evidence obtained by torture after December 30, 2005 is out. So we're still a civilized nation.

And in other news, I heard the following on the radio yesterday. See if you can connect the dots. The Decider's "Government" (motto: Fuck You If You Don't Like It) says there's no point in opening diplomatic talks with Iran if they don't halt their "nookyalur" program. Defense Secretary Robert "The Russians Shot The Pope" Gates then says "We won't attack Iran as long as the diplomatic option is on the table." I think I already provided a translation on Sunday.
