RUSH: Two more sound bites here. These are gems, folks. These are precisely. Joe Biden. We’re back to Hardball now with Chris Matthews. Matthews says, “What do you make of Moussaoui’s comment as he left the courtroom? He yelled out, ‘America , you lost,’ and clapped his hands?”
BIDEN: I don’t want to be that sucker in prison. I don’t want to be that guy in an American prison. If you want to say how to punish somebody, put Zarqawi [sic] in a prison with a bunch of red-blooded American
MATTHEWS: Do you think he’ll survive for long in prison, senator?
BIDEN: I think it’s not going to be an easy road for him.
RUSH: Did I just hear what I think I heard? Did I just hear Joe Biden and Matthews yucking it up over the fact that “Zarqawi” is going to be tortured in jail? Did I just hear that?

RUSH: Yeah. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm.
BREITWEISER: What is the threshold, and why are we not holding
RUSH: Well, let me tell you who those people are. Ever hear of the name Jamie Gorelick? Have you ever heard of Janet Reno, and have you ever heard of Bill Clinton? Because the reason George Tenet couldn’t pass on what he knew was because of The Wall, Kristen, that was built by the Clinton administration in the mid-nineties to prevent sharing of this kind of information. So I guess she’s saying here George Tenet needs to be put to death because he didn’t share information that he knew just like Moussaoui didn’t share information
