Steven Sauerberg on Homeland Security
Durbin said Monday night that he was among the first senators to call attention to treatment at Guantanamo, though he wound up apologizing for "some words" he used. "They weren't used in reference to any soldiers, doctor," Durbin said to Sauerberg. "They were in reference to whoever was involved in what the FBI agents found at Guantanamo."
Sauerberg lashed out at a June 2005 speech in which Durbin said American treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay could be likened to the "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags." Durbin apologized for his remarks, but Sauerberg called Durbin's apology "weak."
"I'm not sure what Sen. Durbin thought he was doing here," he said. "I don't know if he hates his country. I know they were terrible remarks that have hurt the people of this nation."
