2 GOP Chairmen at Odds Over Hill Abuse Hearings
The Washington Post
The House Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Duncan Hunter (R-Calif), is attacking Republican Sen. John Warner for wasting the time of U.S. Commanders by calling them to testify about Abu Ghraib. "House Republican leaders have argued for doing as little as possible in response to the scandal, complaining that administration critics are exploiting it for political ends."
This reaction, coupled with Tom Delay's reprehensible comments, reinforce the unfitness of these people for government. All criticism of the king is treasonous:
House Republicans responded within minutes. "This morning, in a calculated and craven political stunt, the national Democrat Party declared its surrender in the war on terror," said Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.). "Out of sheer, brazen partisanship," House Democrats have "undermined our troops." Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Tex.) said Democrats "are basically giving aid and comfort to our enemies."
