Standard Operating Procedure

Our troops in Diyala province uncovered a torture center operating by the enemy:

U.S. forces raided an al-Qaida hide-out northeast of Baghdad on Sunday and freed
42 Iraqis imprisoned inside, including some who had been tortured and suffered broken bones, a senior U.S. military official said Sunday.

Critics of the war often allege that American forces torture, but this is the real thing--not panties on heads or demeaning photos.

This type of brutality, when the enemy isn't in a hurry and just beheads their captives, is standard operating procedure.

Also standard is our effort to end such abuses by fighting the enemy.

Sadly, it is also standard operating procedure for the international "human rights" groups to fail to notice how our enemies act in their eagerness to find something--anything--that we've done wrong.
