MORAL RELATIVISM: US AND THEM


Senator James Inhofe (R-OK):
I'm probably not the only one up at this table that is more outraged by the outrage than we are by the treatment. The idea that these prisoners -- you know, they're not there for traffic violations. If they're in cell block 1-A or 1-B, 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.

Random Muslim Indonesian:
Even hostages, under the teachings of Islam, must be treated humanely. If others did otherwise, it doesn't mean we should do the same.

Random Muslim in Qatar:
As a Muslim I can only say, we are not allowed to touch an innocent civilian!

Scott McClellan, White House Spokesman:
[The decapitation of Nick Berg] shows the true nature of terrorists. They have no regard for innocent life...There is no justification for the taking of innocent human life.

International Committee of the Red Cross:
Certain military intelligence officers told the ICRC that in their estimate between 70% and 90% of the persons deprived of their liberty in Iraq had been arrested by mistake.

Where is Elizabeth Dole now?

Libby Dole: "Public servant, charming perfectionist."
