Tortured Logic

Last week, during Armed Services Committee hearings on the Abu Gherib prison scandal, the Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe made it clear that he was mad - furious, even. But not for the reason you might expect.

"I am probably not the only one up at this table that is more outraged by the outrage than we are by the treatment. These prisoners, you know they're not there for traffic violations," Inhofe said. "If they're in cellblock 1-A or 1-B, these prisoners, they're murderers, they're terrorists, they're insurgents."

Oh, I see.

More on Inhofe a little later.
