a stunning commitment to democracy and human rights

The Uzbekistani government massacred hundreds of pro-democracy protesters last month, and a NATO resolution to call for an independent international probe of the matter was squashed by the US government because supporting such a call might threaten our usage of Uzbekistani airbases.

Another fine moment in American political history brought to you by the Bush administration. It's almost like they are having a contest to see how disassociated our walk and talk can become before anyone notices.
