Torture Double Standard

I am adamantly opposed to torture. That's one reason why the Iraqi invasion was more than justified.

The American mainstream media however, in its never-ending quest to unseat the Republicans, if not the whole Republic, has decided to present an extremely one-sided view of the subject. While we hear endlessly about the Abu Ghraib atrocities, we hear or see almost nothing about the multitudinous Islamic atrocities. Here's a story about it, but don't expect to see this story in the New York Times or the LA Times. We can't rile up the natives, don't you know.

Oh, and if you're still suffering under the delusion that the media isn't heavilty biased in an anti-Republican and anti-American direction, this is a good place to start.
