Personal Quotes (1)

"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans have 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. Sadly, this is not the case. This was the actions of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners." Speech in the United States Senate, June 14, 2005.
