"You Know Full Well"

| | Comments (0)

you know full well that the abuses [like those in Abu Ghraib] are widespread, in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo, and that they result from policies and statements issued from the top

Let's see. We have no evidence that the abuses are widespread. We have no evidence that the abuses we do know about resulted from policies or statements from the top, as we have seen no policies or statements from the top that say such abuses are OK (and the only policies and statements any of us HAVE seen, in fact, are in direct opposition to such abuses).

And yet apparently I am "profoundly ignorant" for saying "no, I do not know that at all." Because I, you know, don't say I "know full well" something for which there is no evidence.

Again I say: reality-based community, my ass. slashdot.org
