On December 22, Rush Limbaugh reacted to the previous day's Associated Press report on the American Civil Liberties Union's findings, based on documents and emails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, about the treatment of detainees held at the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba:
LIMBAUGH: [Reading from AP report] "One detainee wrapped in an Israeli flag, some were shackled hand and foot in fetal positions for 18 to 24 hours, forcing them to soil themselves." Ugh! I thought they did that anyway over there. But this is news to me that this is news.
