Keeping to the party line

You have to admire the Bush people, they keep it simple. So far a lot of the criticism I've seen in print about the prisoner/human rights thing has latched onto the word "gulag." An unfortunate piece of wording by Amnesty International. God bless them Bush people. They can latch onto the smallest thing and then convince the world that the group in question is full of America haters. Here's the comment from the Secretary of War Rumsfeld: '"Indeed, that's why the recent allegation that the U.S. military is running a gulag at Guantanamo Bay is so reprehensible," he said.' I wish a spokesperson for Amnesty International would get in front of a camera and say "We apologize for calling America's concentration camp a gulag."

I just got done checking Tom Tomorrow's webisite one of the commentators makes the same point in a much better way.
