Dana Perino, Hypocrite

You just gotta love the hypocrisy of the Bush Administration. The following is taken directly from the White House's website, which has a transcript of Dana Perino's briefing to the White House Press Corps:

Q: And the protests, themselves, seem to have been stilled. What do you make of that?

MS. PERINO: Well, unfortunately, intimidation and force can chill peaceful demonstrations. And reports about very innocent people being thrown into detention, where they could be held for years without any representation or charges, is distressing; and we understand that some of the monasteries have been sealed. Now, obviously, this has, again, a chilling effect on protestors, but we would ask that everyone show restraint and allow those who want to express themselves to be able to do so in Burma. (Emphasis mine.)

Gee, innocent people thrown into detention, held for years without representation or charges, where have I heard that one before?

Oh, yeah.
