follow the yellow brick road

fuzzy turtle has pointed me in THIS direction Congressman: Ghraib abuse a 'sex ring,' not torture

Congressman Christopher Shays (R-CT) said in a debate Wednesday night that the abuses at Abu Ghraib were part of a "sex ring," but not torture, RAW STORY has learned.
"It was outrageous, outrageous involvement of National Guard troops," Shays indicated in a debate, "who were involved in a sex ring and they took pictures of soldiers who were naked, and they did other things that were just outrageous. But it wasn't torture."
Shays has since indicated in interviews that though he does consider it sex abuse, and believes sex abuse is torture, he believes it was "more about pornography than torture."

(click on the link there is a VIDEO of him actually SAYING this)

did the entire republican party drop one too many tabs of acid in 1969? it's sounding MORE and MORE like that to me every day. they are NOT living in reality. they are NOT seeing the truth. it's right there in front of their eyes. i can only wonder what mr shays thought of when he was in sudan (i've written to him and he never answered me. i guess i'm glad he never answered me. yet it frightens me he has some responsiblities for reporting on what he saw in sudan).
