Lets not forget how the Iraqi's treated our POW's in the first gulf war.
They beat the # out of our guys.
Dont forget the British Torrnado flyer who was shot down and the Iraqi's posted him on video, his face was black and blue and swollen from abuse.
Lets also not forget these prisoners are the ones responsible for the beheadings, roadside bombs and car bombs that the terrorists run into police stations and markets around Iraq.
Terrorists are not covered under the Geneva Convention, So its off to Cuber and GITMO or some 3rd party ship in international water for the really bad guys where there is no law for further interrogation or a neighboring country that has no ACLU.
I am sure if they were honest and truthfull with the Marines they would not have been mistreated.
The ACLU's Mission is to ensure that The Bill of Rights are preserved for each new generation. The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to all people in the country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

Unnecessary and unwarrented, but simply the facts of war. Abuses will happen.
