LIMBAUGH SEES NOTHING WRONG WITH TORTURE

Over the last 10 days dozens of pictures have been seen on television and in the newspapers depicting the torture at
Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Were also told that there are hundreds of pictures and videos that show a great deal more than
whats been released, and that we may never see them because of how horrific they are.
The torture, at the hands of a few U.S. Army personnel, which has included rape, sodomy, attacks by dogs, homicides,
and other forms of torture, seem to delight Rush Limbaugh, while the rest of the world finds them disgusting.
Here are a few quotes from Rush Limbaughs radio show, which by the way he seems very proud of because I got these quotes
from Rushs web site www.rushlimbaugh.com.
"This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation (a reference
to the secret club at Yale University that both George W. Bush and John Kerry were members)
I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional
You [ever] heard of need to blow some steam off?"
"I'm sorry, folks. I'm sorry. Somebody has to provide a little levity here. This is not as serious
as everybody is making it out to be
Now these quotes would be fine if it was just some ignorant boob speaking to another ignorant boob, but this boob has
15 million followers who parrot his every word. Rush even calls his followers dittoheads.
In the last few days, Rushs quotes have been aired on several news broadcasts and in newspapers that feel that the
torture that has taken place at Abu Ghraib is disgusting and wrong and not what America is truly about.
Rush Limbaugh has been trying to backtrack, and say that these quotes were taken out of context.
The truth is Rush Limbaugh rushed to a judgment that showed his true nature, and instead of saying that he was wrong,
is trying to lie his way out.
