CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – The Marine commander who built the Guantanamo Bay prison said Thursday the U.S. lost the "moral high ground" with its brutal treatment of prisoners, and the facility should be closed as quickly as possible.
Maybe this Marine General should be sitting down with some Republican Senators and Congressmen to explain his views on the matter. Not that they'd give a shit -- Rush Limbaugh gives the GOP and conservatives their marching orders these days and lord knows the pill-popping, limp-dicked one certainly outranks Maj. Gen. Lehnert in the small minds of the right-wing hierarchy when it comes to knowledge and credibility on the subject of torture.
Oh - and not that it needs to be stated - don't expect this story to be covered at all on Fox News. Their cheer-leading support of torture has been nothing short of a bread and butter ratings boons with the rubes.
