Sen. Durbin a Hypocrite on Guantanamo

Today on Wolf Blitzer's show, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) painted a rosy picture of detainee treatment at Guantanamo Bay. Contrast his comments on CNN with his comments on the Senate floor last year:

"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."
