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.
