The answer is, "It's apples and oranges: Americans aren't supposed to do medieval shit like that, John." What is the question?

Give up?Give up?

The question is, "Where is the outrage? The same people screaming about American abuses at Abu Ghraib are now conspicuously silent about this outrage directed against an American."

That was supposed to be the difference between us and them, John. The outrage comes from the fact that we hold ourselves to a higher standard than terrorists do. If your small brain still doesn't understand the distinction, please send me e-mail.
