Glenn Reynolds was good enough

Glenn Reynolds was good enough to point us toward this Mirror editorial falsely accusing the US of torturing Afghan detainees at Gitmo.

The details are so gory I almost wish they were true.

According the the Geneva conventions, if an enemy officer is captured disguised in civies, you’re supposed to shoot him. Remember that famous anti-war picture from Vietnam of the evil South Vietmanese officer giving the nine millimeter retirement plan to some poor schmuck? Well, that poor schmuck was a North Vietnamese officer trying to hide as a civillian — so he got what was legally coming to him.

Those Taliban are lucky we prefer to call them detainees.
