19. True--check out this LTTE
Edited on Wed May-05-04 08:39 PM by lolly
From Latimes, May 4th


Although the photos of Iraqi prisoners suffering humiliation may seem over the line, how does suffering such humiliation pale when the ultimate goal is to save lives? Granted, the photos seem somewhat tasteless, but what are these hard-core alleged insurgents suspected of? Killing and maiming innocent civilians and brave coalition soldiers alike? I don't think we as Americans have the right to complain about how the intelligence community conducts interrogations when its ultimate goal parallels ours: to save the lives of citizens.

Indeed, Gregg, what ARE they suspected of? Have they been charged with anything? Do they have any rights at all?

Good Lord.
