So THAT'S How They Felt When They Hoisted Up "Bring The War Home" Banners

CNN, Soon To Give Masthead Credit To "Pentagon Press Release"
The race to the bottom with Fox continues. This article was linked by a headline that read "Stop-The-Vote Violence Kills 5 In Iraq." How exactly is the "stop-the-vote" violence of today different than all of the violence of a few weeks or few months ago? Will CNN soon replace the word "insurgents" with "puppy-kicking goodness-hating monsters with fangs and scales"? Were there any supermodels hurt in the helicopter crash? Answers, please.

Daily Kos Addresses CT's Long Running Embarrassment Senator Joseph "Jomentum" Leiberman recently took a break from waging a war against sugar and video games to give his full-support behing the recent nomination of Frederick Chopin Rice, citing that lawmakers shouldn't look so much to her past resume of failure and deception as they should give American policy "the benefit of the doubt."

The linguist told her to tell the detainee that she was menstruating, touch him, then make sure to turn off the water in his cell so he couldn't wash. Strict interpretation of Islamic law forbids physical contact with women other than a man's wife or family, and with any menstruating women, who are considered unclean. "The concept was to make the detainee feel that after talking to her he was unclean and was unable to go before his God in prayer and gain strength," says the draft, stamped "Secret." The interrogator used ink from a red pen to fool the detainee, Saar writes. "She then started to place her hands in her pants as she walked behind the detainee," he says. "As she circled around him he could see that she was taking her hand out of her pants. When it became visible the detainee saw what appeared to be red blood on her hand. She said, 'Who sent you to Arizona?' He then glared at her with a piercing look of hatred. "She then wiped the red ink on his face. He shouted at the top of his lungs, spat at her and lunged forward" - so fiercely that he broke loose from one ankle shackle. "He began to cry like a baby," the draft says, noting the interrogator left saying, "Have a fun night in your cell without any water to clean yourself."
