The evil that men do

I was surprised to read that US forces as part of their S&R training:abuse of POWs to expect in custody sub-clause, include the tearing up and flushing of a bible down the toilet. See Mark for why this might surprise some people.

So, at least we now know the line of thinking that lead to the (alleged) Qu'ran incidents.

So, the outrage begins. I was particularly interested to find the following prescient comment on a the FreeRepublic

""But when you want to interrogate a fundamentalist, it is not easy to get into his mind when he considers you an infidel . . ."
Easy solution . . . Confuscius say, turn Abdullah into a big fat infidel . . . "Abdullah, sweetie . . . Now, if you don't want to spend any more time with your head held under water, you WILL look into that there camera over there, you WILL crap on this here Koran, you WILL curse Allah's name, you WILL piss on Mohammad's memory, and you WILL drink this here big glass of pig piss, blood and poop -- five times every day, for the rest of your life. Got me, sweetie? . . . Or . . . We can hold your head under water again. Your choice.
I guarantee you, Abdullah will become the biggest infidel you've ever met and will eagerly spill his guts, infidel to infidel (you just won't want to have him over for dinner, what with all that pig piss, blood and poop on his breath).

yup, it had been widely reported; and it is clear that US interrogation experts used it in their repertoire, since the trained US soldiers to expect such things if taken captive.

What is amusing is the people most outraged now over "Newsweek's lie" were advocating this be done a short time ago.
