Rush Believes Allawi Execution Story

Last week I reported that the Pill-Popping Draft-Dodger's response to allegations that Iraqi PM Iyad Allawi murdered six men in cold blood was, "Good, hubba-hubba." 
Today Media Matters provides a full transcript:
LIMBAUGH: The Australian Broadcasting Corporation is reporting that the new Iraqi Prime Minister Allawi has executed six insurgents in front of witnesses, wanting to send a clear message to these people. Good. Hubba-hubba.

Now that's right. Now, you're going to have -- you're going to have -- you're going to have some of the powerless fearful Left in this country saying see, this is what Bush has done. Bush did this, no due process, they just kill them when you find them. We can't -- America's going to be hated in the world, blah blah blah blah. Well, the Iraqis are handling their own affairs.

Put aside, if you can, the fact that Limpbutt places no value on democratic principles.  It's obvious from this response that the self-anointed bastion of all conservative knowledge finds these allegations to be credible.  

The Australian press is all over this story, and Iraq's Human Rights Minister has opened an investigation.  Where are you, New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NPR...  ?
