Star-Trib: “Durbin should not have apologized”

Filed under: — Different River @ 4:01 pm

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has an editorial asserting that Dick Durbin was wrong — to apologize, that is!

Durbin apologized if his remarks had been “misunderstood.” They weren’t, and Durbin should not have apologized.

Instead, the senator should have hit back hard, just as the Amnesty International did when its comparison of Guantanamo to the Soviet gulag was attacked.

In other words, their point is: Durbin was right, American troops really are Nazis, and Guantánamo really is just like the Gulag.

Next they’ll be telling us that Columbus’ detractors should not have apologized; the world really is flat!

Mitch Berg has a more complete analysis.
