“The important thing here to understand is that the people that are at Guantanamo are bad people…
I mean, these are terrorists for the most part. These are people that were captured in the battlefield of Afghanistan or rounded up as part of the al-Qaida network.”
-Dick Cheney, June 12, 2005

“Um.. As far as I know, aren’t they ALL supposed to be terrorists? I mean, I know its tough to tell since they aren’t actually any, you know, trials or anything to determine guilt, but I’m pretty sure that they are supposed to all be terrorists. What are the other ones? Jaywalkers?”

"Techniques used against Kahtani included inflicting a 'sissy slap' with an inflated latex glove, forcing him to 'bark to elevate his social status up to that of a dog,' and rejecting his request to pray, Time said, citing the log.
Interrogators also played music by Christina Aguilera to keep him from dozing off, Time reported."

"How can they say that there's no torture? They made him listen to Christina Aguilera. I repeat, THEY MADE HIM LISTEN TO CHRISTINA AGUILERA! Dear God, haven't the Geneva Conventions got anything in them to stop that kind of abuse?"

"'My view is FOX News is a propaganda outlet for the Republican Party and I don't comment on FOX News,' Dean said. That was in response to vice president Dick Cheney calling Howard Dean 'over the top' on Fox News on Sunday."
-ABC News, June 12, 2005

“Even we at Fox News manage to get some lefties on the air occasionally, and often let them finish their sentences before we club them to death and feed the scraps to Karl Rove and Bill O'Reilly. And those who hate us can take solace in the fact that they aren't subsidizing Bill's bombast; we payers of the BBC license fee don't enjoy that peace of mind.
Fox News is, after all, a private channel and our presenters are quite open about where they stand on particular stories. That's our appeal. People watch us because they know what they are getting. The Beeb's institutionalized leftism would be easier to tolerate if the corporation was a little more honest about it.”
-Scott Norvell, London Bureau Chief for Fox News, May 20, 2005
