7. Yes, prisoners have been treated better by Iraqi militias
than we treated the Iraqis in the prisons WE ran. This is shameful in and of itself, and the inevitable outcome is that they degrade their own civility in the process.

This is why this country has always rigidly adhered to the Geneva Conventions.

This is why Stupid needs a very long stretch in Leavenworth followed by a trip to the Hague.

Stupid did it to these poor guys. The Iraqis were only his means.
