Back in the USSA!

Scott Carson over at blog asks this important question.

Does it bother anyone that the US government is using former Soviet gulags in Eastern Europe to torture the people they kidnap? That our leader, Dick Cheney, is actively pressuring the senate to exempt the CIA from the new torture ban as his stooge threatens to veto?
That's interesting. Especially as Charles Johnson had such a hissy fit when Irene Khan called Guantanamo 'the Gulag of our time'. Where's his outrage now when his own beloved Bush regime is aping the Stalinist regimes of the Cold War? Nowhere to be seen. Then, he was outraged that a Muslim woman made the remark. Now? Nothing. In light of recent findings, Guantanamo is the tip of a very large network. Will Charles find time to mention this? Only if the Daily Kos take the piss out of him for it.
