Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth

Mad Melanie Phillips seems to have accepted every word of a briefing from the impartial US Embassy press counsellor who told the world that 4 of the 5 Britons released from the Guantanamo concentration camp last week were in fact known terrorists and al-Qa'eda soldiers. So, Mel asks, why haven't they been arrested and charged with treason? Well, here's another question for you Mel. If they were guilty, and the embassy press counsellor, Lee McClenny could have presented his evidence, why didn't the US put them on trial in a court of law? Why, given the strength of the supposed intelligence McClenny could offer, Dubya could even have arranged to have them fried in an East Texas Armchair. Of course, it could be that the Guantanamo Four were not lying, that in fact McClenny didn't have the evidence he claimed to have, that he was spinning a pack of complete lies, and The Scum, Melanie Phillips, and all the other pundits who swallowed the White House press briefing hook line and sinker, were simply repeating what they wanted to believe!
