The Animal They Want Us To See

In another empirical factoid bolstering Greenwald's assertion that the Bushites will stop at nothing to advance their warped agenda, Norman Podhoretz suggests that recently released captive, Jill Carroll, is suffering from psychological trauma when she reports on the good treatment she received at the hands of her captors. ...

These Bushites will stop at nothing to paint the insurgents, terrorists, etc. as animals, unworthy of every human considertaion. It should be noted that Carroll is simply carrying through on her desire to report on the human angle of both sides of this "war." She took extraordinary risks to get out the story that the MSM in general refused or were incapable of reporting. That insurgents or others fighting the US occupation could conceivably be exhibiting human motives is, of course, anathema to a US regime that hopes to portray its opponents--domestic and foreign--as subhuman.
