Riverbend waxes Orwellian

The following quote from Baghdad Burning, provoked mainly by the slaughter of 40 Iraqi civilians in a wedding party, could have come straight from the Master's Politics and the English Language:
"No. Of course not- it couldn't have been a wedding party. It was a resistance cell of women and children (one deviously dressed in a wedding gown!). It wasn't a wedding party just as mosques aren't mosques and hospitals are never hospitals when they are bombed. Celebrating women and children are not civilians. 'Contractors' traveling with the American army to torture and kill Iraqis ARE civilians. CIA personnel are 'civilians' and the people who planned and executed the war are all civilians. We're not civilians- we are insurgents, criminals and potential collateral damage."
