I heard this last night on Real Time with Bill Maher.
Ok, so it's NOT a transcript (haven't been able to find one) but I think I got the gist of it.
BM said that we can't take the moral high ground in regards to the Iranian seizure of those British sailors/marines if they're tortured. If we complain, what are the Iranians gonna say, that they're not doing it correctly?
Thus Spake Bill Maher.
