Lincoln Chafee issue continued...

Jacob -

Lincoln Chafee was the only rep to vote against the war in Iraq and you would like to call him a war criminal??

I think you are missing something.

To which I replied:

Lincoln Chafee voted against the Executive Branch ONLY when he knew his vote would make no material difference.

Did he vote against funding the troops when they were indiscriminately killing innocent Iraqis?

Where was his outrage against the Abu Ghraib issues?

Where was his outrage against the Guantanamo torture?

Where was his outrage against warrantless wire tappings of Americans?

Where was his outrage against Bush's refusal to appear under oath before the 9/11 commission?

Where was his outrage against the perpetrators of the Valerie Plame scandal?

Should I go on?

Lincoln Chafee may have voted against the war, but he supported it to the hilt in every other way.

He, like almost every other Senators, including Hilary Cliton, are war criminals - and that goes for non-Senator Madeline Albright as well.

We foreigners do not have short memories related only to the past and next episodes of Idols!
