Breaking: U.S. Soldiers (*gasp*) blindfold Iraqi prisoners!
The New York Times has broken another important story that is just outrageous: Our soldiers are actually blindfolding Iraqis captured on the battlefield! Forget abu Ghraib. That's yesterday's news.
What, exactly, did these men do to justify blindfolding them and forcing them to their knees on a concrete floor, their heads pressed against the wall? In the United States, kidnappers, rapists, and mass murderers are not treated this way. Timothy McVeigh was not treated this way.Read the rest.
Where is Senator Dick Durbin on this? Where is Cindy Sheehan? We need to demand accountability! Heads should roll!
Meanwhile, in other news not as noteworthy (after all, it didn't appear at all in the NYTimes, so it can't be news), 12 year old Taliban boy saws off the head of a hostage.
