Once again, Senator Inhofe;
"I'm probably not the only one up at this table that is more outraged by the outrage than we are by the treatment," the Oklahoma Republican said at a U.S. Senate hearing probing the scandal.
"These prisoners, you know they're not there for traffic violations," Inhofe said. "If they're in cellblock 1-A or 1-B, these prisoners, they're murderers, they're terrorists, they're insurgents. Many of them probably have American blood on their hands and here we're so concerned about the treatment of those individuals."
"I am also outraged that we have so many humanitarian do-gooders right now crawling all over these prisons looking for human rights violations while our troops, our heroes, are fighting and dying."
The first of 2,500 detainees to be released from the jail at the centre of the abuse scandal were freed yesterday after the American military admitted that the majority of them were being held unnecessarily.

Now Senator Inhofe has nothing to say to that because it contradicts his position and therefore it doesn't exist. Now on to the price of oil...
