Yahoo! News posted this report about the US military’s arrest of the wife and daughter of Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, a lifelong Saddam associate who is No. 6 on the list of most-wanted Iraqis.
Did they do anything wrong? Have they broken laws? Or have we resorted to the tactics of the guys with the broken noses? Are we bringing democracy to Iraq or are we bringing the Iraqi people the morally-bankrupt strong-arm tactics of the organized crime world? It’s a rhetorical question… I know the answer.
UPDATE: USA Today reports that Iraqi Maj. Gen. Abed Hamed Mowhoush died today while undergoing interrogation by US troops.
Happily, I’m pretty unfamiliar with military interrogation techniques, but why was the Army spokesman so quick to assure the press that the subject wasn’t hooded?
