Not that they'll actually do anything about it
But apparently some Republican senators are disgusted by the latest images of brutality to come outof Iraq. From MSNBC.com.
“I don’t know how the hell these people got into our Army,” said Ben Nighthorse Campbell, R-Colo.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., called the images “appalling,” saying they “go beyond” what much of the world has already seen in photos broadcast and published earlier this month.
But Tom DeLay, as usual, fails to see what the big deal is.
But House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, while acknowledging that the materials showed “pretty disgusting sexual acts,” said there was no need for more investigations. “The American system is working,” he said. “... Our enemies are incredibly more evil than what is depicted in the pictures.”
Hey Tommy Boy--to paraphrase Chris Rock, just because our enemies are fucked up doesn't mean we get to be fucked up. That's ignorant.
Or as your fellow Republican Lindsey Graham put it, "When you are the good guys, you've got to act like the good guys."
This guy is taking on Tom DeLay in his home district. The odds are heavily against him, but every second and every penny DeLay has to spend in his home district is time taken away from his opportunity to eventually become Speaker of the House. And the possibility that he could be third in line for the Presidency one day is too scary to imagine.
