What Ever Happened to Abu Ghraib? 

George Soros made a big speech to the National Press Club that spelled out for the millionth time the case against Bush ... the part I liked was

President Bush likes to insist that the terrorists hate us for what we are - a freedom loving people - not what we do. Well, he is wrong on that. He also claims that the torture scenes at Abu Graib prison were the work of a few bad apples. He is wrong on that too. They were part of a system of dealing with detainees put in place by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and our troops in Iraq are paying the price.

I like seeing an accepted mainstream source bring up Abu Ghraib in this context. Why isn't Kerry saying things like the above? Do the Kerry people think that the Abu Ghraib atrocities were such a repugnant downer that to even mention them tarnishes the messenger?

Anyway Soros is kicking off a big new tour and ad campaign ... here's the press release.
