It's okay... He's just an Iraqi

Unfortunately, we again see evidence that tells the world that Americans find torture and interrogation to the death as practices that are "unfortunate" but not necessarily "wrong."

Oh I'm sorry, I meant "negligent," and not necessarily "criminal."

And it's apparently okay to shoot someone 60 times and put a sign over their bodies when you're done... and claim self-defense...

Do we really not realize how exponentially more dangerous this has made the world for our own military (not to mention civilians), who will never again enjoy any humanitarian rights when captured?

Make no mistake, it's us who have lowered the ethical bar for the world here. And the world will never be quite the same because of it.

But, after all... it's all done in the name of fighting terrorism, right?
