IN DALLAS TONIGHT, THE ELEMENTS CAME TOGETHER TO GIVE THE APRIL NIGHT A SERIOUS CHILL. BY COINCIDENCE, THE PRESTON HOLLOW SECTION OF THE AREA SAW NOTED WAR CRIMINALS VISITING BULLY BOY BUSH AND LAURA.
SOME WERE BUSSED IN ON A PREMIER CHARTER BUS. OTHERS CAME IN AS PART OF A CONVOY OF LARGE BLACK VEHICLES SUCH AS CONDI RICE, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE AND ANGER.
KAREN HUGHES AND DAN BARTLETT WERE AMONG THE OTHER NOTED WAR CRIMINALS ATTENDING. KAREN WAS HEARD TO GIGGLE ABOUT NOT NEEDING THE PRISON STRIPED JOGGING SUIT SHE HAD DESIGNED AS PART OF THE KAREN HUGHES K-MART COLLECTION.
THESE REPORTERS CORNERED CONDI RICE TO ASK HER IF SHE WAS WORRIED TO BE TRAVELING IN A SERIES OF GAS GUZZLERS.
"LOOK," CONDI EXPLAINED, "AFTER TAKING THE COUNTRY TO WAR FOR OIL, WE BETTER BE WASTING GAS! OTHERWISE, WHAT WAS THE POINT?"
We applaud Colorado Congressman Jared Polis for his efforts last week to shine the spotlight on the killings of homosexuals in Iraq, and to press the State Department to demand accountability from the Iraqi government.
The first openly gay man to be elected to the House, Polis has been investigating the treatment of gays in Iraq for several months, according to The Post's Michael Riley. His research led to the discovery of a transgender Iraqi man who told the congressman he had been arrested, beaten and raped by security forces with Iraq's Ministry of Interior.
Human-rights groups have passed information to Polis that claims another man was beaten into confessing he belonged to a gay-rights group and that the man had been sentenced to execution by an Iraqi court.
The information I received was derived from two separate testimonials of gay and transgender Iraqi men that were detained, tortured and sentenced to death for being members of an allegedly forbidden organization in Iraq called Iraqi LGBT. One of these invidividuals was able to escape, while the other was subsequently executed by Iraqi Ministry of Interior Security Forces.
