Abu Ghraib Coming Back To Haunt US

Nicely done, liberal media.

U.S. military interrogators in Iraq tell Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin prisoners are doing far less talking since the publicity of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the crackdown on harsh techniques used in questioning them.

"Do you want to know why there are so many successful attacks – attacks that are not averted because of good intelligence?" asked one military source familiar with the situation. "Because we're getting next to nothing out of the prisoners. Our information flow has dried up."

This was easy to see coming. Thanks to the ridiculous overreaction to Abu Ghraib that was played 24/7 all over the world, we are putting the gloves on when interrogating head chopping, disemboweling terrorists. And it looks as if the terrorists are impressed with our civility. Way to go, MSM. Americans and Iraqis are dying because of you.

And its the same with Guantanamo. The relentless negative coverage of Gitmo has led us to release terrorists who should not have been released and who have gone on to rejoin the fight. Again, people are dying because of the government's fear of bad press. Somehow, though, the MSM always escapes any responsibility for its excess. No one ever seems to make the connection.

But the answers are relatively simple. In Iraq, just turn the terrorists over to Iraqis for questioning. It's a sovereign country, let them slap the terrorists around for info. Americans can even be in the same room. Don't touch, just observe. I'm sure it's either happening now or will be soon. With Al Qaeda types, continue to turn them over to Jordan or Egypt or whoever to get the necessary information. If that's not possible in some cases, kill them. No prisoners, no hysterical screeching from the MSM.

I'd rather not do this. But I don't see how we have a choice. It's either let others do the tough questioning or allow the MSM to continue to indirectly cause deaths.
