"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Saturday, May 08, 2004

Via Juan Cole, Muqtada Al-Sadr taunts us:
"What sort of freedom and democracy can we expect from you [Americans] when you take such joy in torturing Iraqi prisoners?" asked Sadr, demanding that the US guards who have been charged with abuse be handed over to Iraqi courts for trial. Referring to Mr Bush's apology on Thursday, the firebrand cleric said: "Your statements are not enough. They [the guards] must be punished in kind.
He added: "And it wouldn't have been so bad if people like Nancy Pelosi hadn't made such a big deal out of it."
