Did You Know...

The Chicago Tribune’s Jill Zuckman pokes at the entrails.

Hugh Hewitt analyzes The Durbin Effect:

The willingness to slander the servicemen and women responsible for the custody and interrogation of the detainees at Gitmo and around the globe did not begin with Durbin and it will not end with Pelosi.

True that. Kevin at MediaSlander has the latest example.



Some are still not satisfied with Durbin’s statement…

Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), said Mr. Durbin’s apology “was not sufficient” and contrasted the Democrat’s reaction to that of Sen. Rick Santorum, Pennsylvania Republican, who was criticized by the ADL for likening the use of the filibuster on judges to Nazi tactics.

“Senator Santorum apologized,” Mr. Foxman said. “Senator Durbin’s explanation is not an apology, and I think an apology is in order.”

Update II: National Review warns about the next Gitmo gambit.

La Shawn Barber points to this post-mortem
