A "PAIR" LOCATED IN VA.
To my surprise, someone else has a position on Durbin. Sheila sent this in from Senator George Allen of VA. And she didn't have to call him for his position:
I didn't even have time to try to contact Sen. George Allens office, they sent out an email early today that covered several topics including Durbin:
"Earlier this week, Senator Dick Durbin, the Senate Minority Whip, likened the actions of U.S. soldiers at Guantanamo Bay to those of “Nazis, Soviets, in their Gulags,” and regimes that had “no concern for human beings.” Senator Durbin’s disparaging remarks on the floor of the U.S. Senate were reprehensible. To compare our brave and honorable American troops to the Nazis and other brutal, murderous regimes is outrageous and irresponsible. It is appalling to me that a U.S. Senator would disparage our men and women in uniform in this way. This hateful assertion can be demoralizing to our brave troops and their families praying for their loved one’s safety back home. Moreover, it must bring glee to terrorists and those who are enemies of America. The patriots serving in Guantanamo and elsewhere around the world are truly some of the finest that our nation has to offer and I’m so proud of the way they represent America. I believe Senator Durbin should ask for forgiveness from the troops and their families for his absurd, deplorable analogy.George never minces his words...:-)
Good for George Allen.
