This so-called ill treatment and torture in detention centers, stories of which were spread everywhere among the people, and later by the prisoners who were freed … were not, as some assumed, inflicted methodically, but were excesses committed by individual prison guards, their deputies, and men who laid violent hands on the detainees.

a. Donald Rumsfeld
b. Alberto Gonzales
c. Conoleeza Rice
d. George W. Bush
e. Rush Limbaugh
e. Rudolf Hoess

The answer is “e”, the SS commandant at Auschwitz, Rudolf Hoess. What’s scary is it could have been any of the others (with the exception of the boy king – come on… you know he can’t string that many words together).

  1. This post is interesting. I was in Nuremburg on All Saints Day (Nov. 1) and it is an eery little town. They sort of glossed over the trials. Let’s hope that these sort of atrocities NEVER happen to anyone ever again. On the plus side, it is where gingerbread was invented.

  2. The brat king did say that it was just a night unit gone rogue or some such minimalization junk. You are right on in your assessment of the situation. I just got an Amnesty Internation alert on my own country and it took minutes for it to settle in on me – that’s me!
