Good news: More “unfairly imprisoned” Gitmo detainees are now back on the battlefield

Posted by: ST on January 14, 2009 at 10:53 am

Any guesses as to how many on the far left pranced around with glee when they read this news? God help if we get attacked again, and if it happens and it turns out that even one of the released Gitmo Hotel guests had any role to play in it, there will be hell to pay to all who badgered the adminstration on their Gitmo policy, but that will be one “Toldjah So” many of us won’t relish pointing out.

There’s a story out today (written by Bob Woodward, I should note) making waves about a Gitmo “trial overseer” who said we “tortured” a Saudi national back in 2007 and that’s why she didn’t refer his case for prosecution. Some of the Usual Suspectsâ„¢ are touting the allegation as evidence that Bush/Cheney are “war criminals” but Jules Crittenden, who has been on a roll lately, cuts through the bull and gives the straight up 411 on the whole “torture” argument. Consider it a must-read.

    As far as the torutre allegation, there is one piece of information that they fail to acknowledge:

    “The techniques they used were all authorized, but the manner in which they applied them was overly aggressive and too persistent

    In other words, they used sleep deprivation, cold rooms, sustained isolation, etc., but the just used them too often and too severely.

    To the Bush haters this will translate to: “Bush authorized torture!!” and nothing will change their minds.

    If these technieques were used improperly then punish the ones who did, it’s that simple.
