Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin makes an emotional apology on the Senate floor for remarks he made regarding mistreatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The two-term Democrat caused an uproar last week when he said information in an FBI report about interrogation methods at Guantanamo reminded him of Nazis, Soviets and other infamous regimes.
