Chairman McKenna Calls on Senator Durbin to Apologize for Comments

CHICAGO - On the Senate floor yesterday Senator Richard Durbin (D- IL) commented on interrogation practices at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by saying, "You would most certainly believe that this had happened by Nazis, Soviets in their Gulags or some mad regime, Pol Pot and others, that had no concern for human beings."

"Senator Durbin's comments come as a great disservice to our military personnel in Guantanamo. They are also a great disservice to all US soldiers and veterans who have fought, and continue to fight, to overcome evil regimes and spread democracy across the world," Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy McKenna said today. "We call on Senator Durbin to apologize for his comments."
