Here’s a page-one story from today’s Washington Post with nasty details about an Iraqi general who apparently was wrapped inside a sleeping bag and beaten to death by US Army interrogators at Abu Ghraib: Documents tell of brutal improvisation by GIs.
This was in November, 2003, the time when new-and-improved interrogation techniques were being imported from Guantanamo so we could shut down the Iraqi insurgency once and for all.
Whew. I’m sure glad we had the balls to do what was needed back then. Otherwise, we might still be fighting the insurgency today.
P.S. Sorry for the long posting hiatus. I’m back now.
