Republican response to secret U.S. prisons

November 11, 2005

Re "GOP Leaders Urge Prison Leak

Inquiry," Nov. 9

A week after the news of our secret "gulag" prisons came out, Republican leaders in Congress are calling for a leak investigation.

These are the same people who have stalled for more than a year an investigation into whether President Bush lied us into a war.

And, of course, the White House also stonewalled the Rove-Libby investigation. How do you spell hypocrite?

How interesting to hear Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) calling for an investigation into the leaking of CIA prisons in Europe, and the IRS' investigation of a church sermon not aligned with this administration's "conservative" agenda.

I trust the concerned half of America went to the polls Tuesday to change the balance because this compassionate conservatism, combined with a thumb on the scales of justice, is making for monotonous reading -- day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.

Priorities are obscenely perverted when some people worry more about someone blowing the whistle on our secret prisons than on the presence of secret American torture prisons themselves.
