Bolton Nomination In Peril Over Gitmo Allegations

Could the bushy moustache and wire-rimmed glasses be hiding the notorious Sergeant A?
The long-fought battle to confirm John Bolton as UN Ambadassador took a stunning turn late last week from an unlikely direction, with the release of a blockbuster report from Time magazine.

Time's report, detailing the interrogation of a prisoner at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility by a "Sgt A", has Democrat Senators in an uproar. From Time:

A latex glove was inflated and labeled the 'sissy slap' glove. The glove was touched to the detainee's face periodically after explaining the terminology to him...

I began to engage closeness with the detainee. This really evoked strong emotions within the detainee. He attempted to move away from me by all means...

Senator Joe Biden is furious. "We've already heard testimony about Mr. Bolton's legendary temper, his threatening looks, his putting his hands on his hips. Can anyone read this report in Time and not notice the eerie similarities between this so-called 'Sgt A' at Guantanamo and John Bolton? You're damn right we're asking the Administration for more documents. Mr. Bush, who is 'Sergeant A'?"

Bolton angrily denies any involvement with the brutal interrogations at Guantanamo, which detainees have described using chilling phrases such as "health spa", "religious retreat", and "slumber party". When asked point blank if he was in fact 'Sgt A', Bolton cocked his head and pointed his finger at our correspondent, who wisely ran screaming from the interview.

Explaining, as Howard Dean said recently, that "I would make the argument that America is safer when Democrats are in the White House, than when Republicans are in the White House," Democrats hope to derail the Bolton nomination, and instead install their own choice for UN Ambassador, Janet Reno.

Could Howard Dean's claim of a more aggressive Democrat terror war be true?

The Democrats are going to do anything they can to derail Bolton. I wonder what kind of abuse our prisoners get in Iraqi prisons?

Are you saying that Sgt. A is actually Sgt. B?

Have you no mercy for your fellow man?

When will you let us free of your maze of deceptions and mind-games? A is B, B is A. It feels like the whole world is turned upside-down and backwards.

Okay, enough--you win this round, Anonymous. But don't expect us to roll over so easy when you drop by for the next match.

We'll have some special 'surprises' awaiting your return.
