Sen. James Inhofe,Republican of Oklahoma, has had enough of the crying and moaning over torture of Iraqi prisoners. It’s real simple, he says: The guys who were mistreated had it coming. As quoted by CNN and Reuters:
“I’m probably not the only one up at this table that is more outraged by the outrage than we are by the treatment. I am also outraged that we have so many humanitarian do-gooders right now crawling all over these prisons looking for human rights violations, while our troops, our heroes are fighting and dying,” he said.
“These prisoners, you know they’re not there for traffic violations,” said Inhofe.
“If they’re in cell block 1A or 1B, these prisoners — they’re murderers, they’re terrorists, they’re insurgents. …. Many of them probably have American blood on their hands. And here we’re so concerned about the treatment of those individuals.”
