Unreal - the Jayson Blair DBM strikes again!! This item originated a few years ago but has been used over and over again to grossly distort the position of Gonzales and the WH on treatment of detainees in the WOT. The DBM has made it sound like the WH was dismissing ALL of the Geneva Conventions as "quaint" when the full quotation so dishonestly omitted by Isikoff (scumbag) and Newsweak shows that Gonzales was talking specifically about some GC provisions that truly are "quaint" and certainly have little or no application to holding terrorist prisoners at Gitmo. Once again the DBM has been shown to be flagrantly dishonest, in effect another set of "527" groups working on behalf of the Demagogic Party.

[Gonzales]: "In my judgment, this new paradigm renders obsolete Geneva’s strict limitations on questioning of enemy prisoners and renders quaint some of its provisions requiring that captured enemy be afforded such things as commissary privileges, script (i.e., advances of monthly pay), athletic uniforms, and scientific instruments.”"

Oh...and is this the same ISIKOFF....that has written the book Hubris with David Corn??

I wonder how much he "left out" of that book that would make it even worse for Armitage, Powell and Fitzgerald?

He and Newsweek obviously have a habit of this..

Thank you SO much for the ping!

Thanks for the ping and your commentary. So many literally dishonest and dishonorable people abound in the world of news media. And they are totally free to print their misinformation with the understanding that the masses are not educated enough to discern between their deceit and verifiable facts. Such is the world of freedom. The bitter two edge sword.

Amazing how the left wing blogs and MSM mediots keep posting and printing the same garbage which has been proven to be nothing but liberal wet dreams and lies posing as news.
