DEPENDS ON WHAT HER DEFINITION OF ‘THEY’ IS

“They tortured people in Iraq, they (the Iraqis) have no weapons of mass destruction. Could somebody explain to me whether you think they’re idiots or geniuses?”

-Canadian Member of Parliament Carolyn Parrish

    She from Quebec or something? Don’t want to make a remedial English mistake like ambiguous pronoun usage when you’re insinuating that other folks are morons.

    Acceptable if English is your second language, I guess, but otherwise…

    If both “they”s refer to the former regime, or to the Hussein brothers, then I can understand the question.

    I didn’t spent a lot of time ther, but I had the “pleasure” of visiting Abu Ghraib about 8 months ago. I didn’t get the opportunity to catch anyone in the act, but I did see the cells and the torture facilities that were used before the Coalition arrived.

    Nasty places, those. They are standing unused now, and I hope one day they are available for viewing, in the same manner that certain facilities in Germany are now. We would do well to remember that the unimaginable is not the impossible.
