From CNN.com: "Lawyer: Red Cross Found Saddam Being Abused"

You have GOT to be kidding me. What worthless liberal drivel!

Jordanian defense lawyer Mohammad Rashdan showed CNN the documents, which were filled out after the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) visited the captured leader on January 21.

Rashdan showed one page of the ICRC report, on which various boxes can be checked to indicate the physical condition of a detainee. "Good health" and "slightly wounded" are marked to indicate Saddam's condition.

"Why would he be slightly wounded a month after his arrest?" Rashdan asked during an interview with CNN. "He's being abused, just like the prisoners of Abu Ghraib were abused."

However, the attorney had no proof of any abuse. Rashdan has never spoken to or seen Saddam, despite making several requests to do so, he said.


Come ON! SLIGHTLY WOUNDED is now abuse?! Give me a break. Oh, but it gets better...

Rashdan also complained that he doesn't think the United States will be able to provide him and his client with a safe meeting place when they are finally able to get together.

"They cannot even protect their own troops from insurgents. It's a disgrace," the attorney said.

"How can they provide me with a chance to sit down and talk to him without dangers of all kinds looming around us?"


Gee. Iraq = Terrorists running around trying to kill US Troops. US = Relatively safe place in the world.

What a frigging idiot and media whore. The FACT that CNN.com had this headlined as "Lawyer: Red Cross Found Saddam Being Abused" makes me ill.
