The Definition of Chutzpah

So doesn't it take a lot of balls, I mean real chutzpah, for U.S. officials in Iraq to be pissed off at Iraqi officials for torturing detainees?
A joint statement by the American Embassy and the United States military command called the situation "totally unacceptable" and said American officials "agree with Iraq's leaders that mistreatment of detainees will not be tolerated."
I mean.... are you fucking serious? After all the revelations of Abu Ghraib, rendition, strange wandering international CIA flights, and secret Eastern European detention centers, we have the unmitigated gall and audacity to say shit to anyone about torture being unacceptable? Almost as unbelievable as Bush's reprehensibly partisan Veteran's Day speech.
