ACLU Makes More Anti US Claims

In the latest salvo from the ACLU, this piece from the AP is just another example of the continuing war of words that has gone on regarding "prisoner abuse". Yet the piece notes:

"In response to a recent Newsweek story, later retracted, that U.S. officials had confirmed allegations of Quran desecration at Guantanamo Bay, Pentagon officials have said repeatedly that they have turned up no credible, substantiated claims that U.S. military guards had deliberately treated the Muslim holy book with disrespect. "

How can this sort of statement come from the ACLU, if the claims are unsubstantiated?:

``The United States government continues to turn a blind eye to mounting evidence of widespread abuse of detainees held in its custody,'' said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. ``If we are to truly repair America's standing in the world, the Bush administration must hold accountable high-ranking officials who allow the continuing abuse and torture of detainees.''

Romero is way out of line. Maybe the next terrorist attack will involve his friends or loved ones.

I'll be back
