Iraq Human Rights Outrage (or lack thereof)

Two American soldiers abducted in Iraq by terrorists were found dead by Iraqi forces, Reuters reports today.

The two were reportedly tortured and murdered.

Representatives of the UN panel that recently called for the detention center at Guantanamo to be closed issued a statement demanding that members of Al Qaida in Iraq to stop engaging in such "gross violations of human rights."

I made that up.

Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer immediately introduced a resolution calling for the U.S. to petition the International Criminal Court in the Hague to indict Osama bin Laden and his associates in Iraq for the abduction, torture and murder of the two soldiers.

I made that up too.

French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a joint statement deploring the killings -- which they described as "bestial" -- and offered their support for allied forces in Iraq.

Okay, I made that up too.
