Dick Durbin is a moron: Part 5,942

Everyone's been talking about Sen. Dick Durbin's (D-Ill.) comments. Here they are:
When you read some of the graphic descriptions of what has occurred here—I almost hesitate to put them in the RECORD, and yet they have to be added to this debate. Let me read to you what one FBI agent saw. And I quote from his report: "One a couple of occasions, i entered interview rooms to find a detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor, with no chair, food, or water.
Hey Dick, he's chained to the floor. What does he need a chair for?
On another occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold.
Wait a damn minute. We're AIR CONDITIONING these violent extremist scumbags?
On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees.
That's more like it.
On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room
To Dick, that's torture. Sounds like high school gym class to me.
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.
Who knew Soviets, Nazis and Khmer Rouge had rap music and air conditioning?
