Torture White House

Let's play 'Who Said That?!'

"These so-called ill-treatments and this torturing... were not, as assumed, inflicted methodically, but were excesses committed by individual leaders, subleaders, and men who laid violent hands on internees... It is obvious that there were elements among them who would ill-treat internees, but this ill-treatment was never tolerated."

"Who Said That?!"

Was it:

A) White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales in Congress today?


B) Nazi Auschwitz Kommandant Rudolf Hoess during the Nuremberg Trails?

The answer... after this.

By Kevin Siers, North Carolina, The Charlotte ObserverCartoon by Kevin Siers, The Charlotte ObserverIf you answered, A) White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales in Congress today, you'd be close... But wrong.Rudolf Hoess said this about concentration camp abuses and torture, but doesn't it sound eerily familiar? Only the use of the word "internees" instead of "detainees" really gave it away.
