Since when did the American Civil Liberties Union become the Iraqi/Afghanistani Civil Liberties Union?
I don't recall them ever being concerned with the abuses of Iraqi/Afghanistani liberties by the Taliban and Saddam. I don't remember them ever issuing press releases about the public flogging of women who let their burqas slip in public. Or about Saddam's use of plastic sredders for discipline. Mum was the word.
So, what's different now? Exactly what has changed that would all of a sudden get their juices flowing for the protection of these people they didn't give a flying fuck about before?
I got this tickle in the back of my head, but I just can't bring it forward...
