Where's The European Outrage?

The baltimoresun.com reported that President George W. Bush traveled to Austria today to ā€œspotlight the improved relations with Europe that have marked his second term, but a strong undercurrent of international outrage about the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay is threatening to mar the atmosphere.ā€

The same news story also reported that the United Nations special investigator for torture, Manfred Nowak, said that the U.S.-European Union summit "would be an excellent opportunity to demand, and to facilitate, an immediate closing" of Guantanamo.

Such moral outrage on the part of Europeans.

Where is the moral outrage over the torture and beheadings of Private First Class Thomas L. Tucker, age 25, and Private First Class Kristian Menchaca, age 23?

Both men were abducted, tortured, and beheaded by Muslim terrorists, and not a peep out of the U. N. special investigator for torture.
