A Hypothetical on Hypocrisy
I had an interesting -- and admittedly cynical -- thought hit me this evening while watching the latest news about the would-be Detroit airplane bomber.
From the reports, it appears this young Nigerian alleged wannabe terrorist was in considerable pain from third-degree burns after his botched bombing attempt aboard the Delta airliner. What if it turns out that the current powers that be ordered painkiller withheld from the terrorist until he talked. What if? Just imagine.
If such a thing indeed happened -- and I am only surmising -- do you think that the hue and cry from the media and the left will be as vociferous as it was against the Bush Administration for waterboarding Al Qaeda terrorists?
Just asking. And I'm waiting for the leak from within.
