Sen. McCain: Gitmo Ignoramus

Michelle Malkin posts idiot statements of Sen. ("You must be a Senator, only a Senator could believe something that stupid") McCain, from his cameo on Meet the Depressed:

Sen. John McCain made these charges on Meet the Press yesterday: "The weight of evidence [in Guantanamo Bay] has got to be that we've got to adjudicate these people's cases, and...if it means releasing some of them, you'll have to release them. Look, even Adolf Eichmann got a trial." (By the way, check out the Knight Ridder reporter's editorializing: "McCain is emerging as a voice of conscience and nuance on the stay-or-go Guantanamo issue." Blecch.)

I have some questions for the Senator. What would you thought had Jane Fonda called for you, and your POW (are they still) comrades to be adjudicated, i.e., put on trial?

Senator, are the terrorists soldiers? Soldiers are not to be tried, uh, adjudicated, are they? What's that, no, they are not soldiers. Well then, can we try civilians? What's that, uh, they are not civilians either?

Well then, what are they? I'll tell you what they are Senator. They are the Thugees come again. And the flayers of human beings, the flayed-human skin caped Aztecs, worshipping at the citadels of death and torture. They are the Japanese in Nanking, spearing on bayonets babies flung into the air. They are surely the Nazis, burning people alive and hanging parts of legs and arms off bridges.

What would you have given Senator, for some AC in Hanoi, and an arrow on the floor pointing towards Annapolis?
