the fun just never ends

there is a saying i've read among users of livejournal -- "teh stupid, it burns!"

by this point in the reign of the bush administration, we've learned that "teh stupid" is often the norm. but sometimes dubya comes up with stuff that makes you wish they'd script him all the time.

today he admitted that the CIA does indeed have secret prisons overseas. the AP story reports that "Bush said 14 suspects -- including the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks and architects of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole and the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania -- had been turned over to the Defense Department" and moved to gitmo for trial.

then, as justification for its existence, i suppose, the prez offered that the CIA program "has helped us to take potential mass murderers off the streets before they were able to kill."

huh ... wouldn'tja think that the architect of the 9/11 attacks and the planners of the cole bombing and the attacks on u.s. embassies already qualify as mass murderers? and haven't they, then, been quite well able to kill indeed?
