Bush says Amnesty report 'absurd'
What? You disagree with me? Well FLAG, FLAG, FLAG, FLAG, FLAG! Why do you hate freedom? </conservative>

US President George Bush has dismissed as "absurd" an Amnesty International report that said the US was setting back the cause of human rights.

The human rights group described the US Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba as "the gulag of our time".

There have been allegations that guards at the camp had desecrated the Koran, prompting protests in Muslim countries.

But Mr Bush said on Tuesday: "The United States is a country that promotes freedom around the world."

"I'm aware of the Amnesty International report and it's absurd, it's an absurd allegation," the president said during a press conference in the Rose Garden of the White House.
First Herr Cheney, now Shrub Fuhrer. Kos (as usual) offers more perspective.

What amazes me is that anyone is actually surprised at this.

I'm almost getting tired of being pissed off at Bush/Republicans/Right-wingers. They're just so... WRONG. And I mean objectively wrong, really. The only way you can see them as right is to be brainwashed. Of course, half of America has been brainwashed, so it almost seems normal.

I'm just too tired of it all to say anything more about it.

SHOULD READ: But Mr Bush said on Tuesday: "The United States is a country that [WHEN IT BENEFITS US] promotes freedom around the world [FOR RICH WHITE STRAIGHT CHRISTIAN MEN AND CEO's]."
