Drawings, tools seized from Iraq safe house in U.S. military raid
MAY 24--In a recent raid on an al-Qaeda safe house in Iraq, U.S. military officials recovered an assortment of crude drawings depicting torture methods like "blowtorch to the skin" and "eye removal." Along with the images, which you'll find on the following pages, soldiers seized various torture implements, like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Photos of those items can be seen here. The images, which were just declassified by the Department of Defense, also include a picture of a ramshackle Baghdad safe house described as an "al-Qaeda torture chamber." It was there, during an April 24 raid, that soldiers found a man suspended from the ceiling by a chain. According to the military, he had been abducted from his job and was being beaten daily by his captors. In a raid earlier this week, Coalition Forces freed five Iraqis who were found in a padlocked room in Karmah. The group, which included a boy, were reportedly beaten with chains, cables, and hoses. Photos showing injuries sustained by those captives can be found here. (12 pages)

What is intersting is the viewpoint that, since Al Queda treats it's captives worse then we do that somehow justifies our own maltreatment or torture of captives - as long as we don't saw off their heads with a dull knife, hey - it's ok!:)

Exactly. I would think that we would take the moral high ground on this, rather than get into some war of reciprocity regarding the treatment of captured soldiers.

I say we find the ones who participate in these horrible acts and force feed them greasy PORK sandwiches and have a nice pig petting zoo at the local coalition camp where they can have their 'exercise' time.

Why? Why would dergrading another human being bring about justice? Aren't we, as Americans, above that?

We shouldn't be IMO we should use the same tactics as them. Except hiding behind innocent civilians and strapping bombs to their kids to kill innocent people.

I disagree. Take the moral highground always. To behave in someone else's manner is to become them.

So we completely lose the moral highground in the process and show ourselves to be no better then they are.

In the words of Hannibal Lecter.

If one does as God does enough times, one becomes as God is.

Torturing suspected opposition fighters will only go on to create more torture and feed a blood lust.
