Torture: Return Serve

The Vietamese commander who detained, questioned, beat and tortured John McCain wants to set the record straight:

"But I can confirm to you that we never tortured him. We never tortured any prisoners."
This is positively Bush-esque in its brazen distortion of reality: whatever the facts, torture is something that others do. Despite being pro-torture now that he is no longer being tortured, McSame wants voters to believe he's against it.

It didn't take long for someone to return serve on the Bush-Cheney junta's perversions of the reality of torture. It should be hilarious to watch "conservatives" contort and pretzel their way around this.
