How Does a Pot Call a Kettle Black in German?

From David's Medienkritik:

German Foreign minister Fischer lectured Colin Powell and Conti Rice during his visit this week in Washington on how to humanely treat prisoners.

The German media were shocked - shocked! - by the "torture" of Iraqi prisoners.

All hell broke lose when the pictures of naked Iraqis in the Abu Ghraib prison were published. Almost by default the German media took the moral high ground, blaming the US army, George W. Bush, the US government, and "Amerika" for the "betrayal of our values".

Well, it turns out, "our values" were betrayed in Germany too. Let's see what Amnesty International had to say about the treatment of asylum applicants in Germany. . .
