(Hat tip to Emperor Misha I and IMAO)
It had been a while since I had visited the blog of Bill Whittle, an amazingly talented essayist. He writes about "Sanctuary" and the terrorists we are facing...
"These shameless and honor-free fanatics have been rigorously coached to lie about mistreatment and torture, and despite this transparent fact, every utterance they make is breathlessly quoted and trumpeted by the press as absolute truth. The naked human pyramids, intimidation with dogs, sexual humiliation and threat of electroshock torture that marked a day or two of mistreatment at Abu Graib were the tools used by immature and untrained individuals precisely because the methods previously employed at that location – removal of fingers and tongues and genitalia, electrified wire brushes, and the rape and murder of relatives before the eyes of the prisoner – are so far beyond the horizon of what American interrogators are able to imagine doing that any comparison between the two betrays the moral blindness of those making the comparison."
It is a 2 part essay, Part 1 and Part 2, found at their respective links.
Please, go and read. They are lengthy, but worth the effort.
