Thoughts: Another fake and unwanted apology

Sen Durbin isn't sorry for his comparison of Gitmo to the Nazi's even though he made a weak attempt of apologizing.
Sen. Dick Durbin went to the Senate floor late Tuesday to offer his apologies to anyone who may have been offended by his comparison of treatment of detainees at the U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Nazis, Soviet gulags and Cambodia's Pol Pot.

"More than most people, a senator lives by his words ... Occasionally words fail us, occasionally we will fail words," Durbin, D-Ill., said.

"I am sorry if anything I said caused any offense or pain to those who have such bitter memories of the Holocaust, the greatest moral tragedy of our time. Nothing, nothing should ever be said to demean or diminish that moral tragedy.

"I am also sorry if anything I said cast a negative light on our fine men and women in the military ... I never ever intended any disrespect for them. Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line to them I extend my heartfelt apology," Durbin said, choking on his words.

He isn't sorry for what he said, he is only sorry if it offended anyone. He should be sorry for being a Senator, sorry for assisting the terrorist scum, and just sorry for being a complete and total dumb ass.

As far as I'm concerned the only way I'll be happy is if he resigns. His comments are unforgivable.
