* you might remember that back on july 14:
"Congress has demanded that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld hand over a raft of documents to Congress that could substantiate allegations that U.S. forces have tried to break terror suspects by kidnapping and mistreating their family members. Rumsfeld has until 5 p.m. Friday to comply."two fridays later? crickets.
This from my interview with Sibel:
"The military in Iraq were bringing the children of the detainees - 3 years old, 5 years old - and they would beat up and torture the children in front of the detainees - and they'd threaten the detainees that they would keep torturing the children until they talked! So Sergeant Provance reported this stuff and he was disciplined and put on administrative leave."THEY WERE FUCKING TORTURING 3 YEAR OLDS! and the stupid somnolent american media can't even follow up a simple story.
Here's Justin at TPMM:
This congressional subpoena for Donald Rumsfeld struck me as uncommon. I made some calls, and what do you know -- it is uncommon.What on earth does it take? apparently neither torturing children, nor an 'uncommon' subpoena for the SecDef, nor the combination of the two. perhaps if we can find a Rapture twist we'll get a 30 min CNN special.
I've spoken with two Capitol Hill authorities (who wouldn't be named), and neither could remember more than one or two congressional subpoenas issued to the Bush administration.
