when CNN reports it. The only thing more damning would be if Fox, for whatever reason, decided to report it.
The ACLU has discovered that soldiers in Iraq abused detainees. In one instance, forcing a father to choose which of his two sons would be executed. In another, forcing a detainee to dig his own grave before being executed. Two things, nobody was actually killed, and these were not prisoners, they were detainees. Digging your own grave? Wasn’t that a no-no in Bosnia?
The other thing we discover is that the Red Cross issued concerns to the Pentagon in 2002 about the way the Qur’an was being handled, and again in 2003.
Read these items to support my earlier post on why it doesn’t matter if Newsweek was wrong on their sourcing on this one particular issue. It simply falls in line with a larger pattern of abuse.
