Embattled senator claims he was 'misunderstood'

After days of standing his ground but finding almost no supporters, Senator Dick "Turban" Durbin now says he was "misunderstood" when he compared American anti-terrorism personnel to Nazis and Soviets.

"My statement in the Senate was critical of the policies of this administration, which add to the risk our soldiers face," the Illinois Democrat said in a statement to the press. "I have learned from my statement that historical parallels can be misused and misunderstood. I sincerely regret if what I said caused anyone to misunderstand my true feelings: Our soldiers around the world and their families at home deserve our respect, admiration and total support."
