Senator Dick Durbin

Dick Durbin on the Senate floor on Tuesday comparing our troops to the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge:

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.

Is this the same Dick that compromised one of our nation's most sensitive secrets -- so sensitive that its unauthorized disclosure reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security of the United States?

Is this the same Dick that disclosed information so sensitive that had one of our guys in the military intelligence community done the same, he would, as a minimum, lose his security clearance and his job and would most likely be "re-assigned" to the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth to spend about 10 years doing, shall we say, less intelligent work?

Is this the same Dick?

Why yes, it is that Dick.
