Yes, after all, if the public knew the truth about the way this war was being conducted, they might be able to make informed decisions about it.

If true then it's about time. Cut off one head and we will take out 1000 of you, your relatives, your wives, your children, your dog, your cat, your chickens, your cattle, your camel. Blow up a car bomb and glass the entire city

Is anyone aware of any form of corroboration from a credible source regarding the allegations made in the source article?
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The U.S. military said on Friday two Iraqi women detained for six days had been held on suspicion of complicity in insurgent attacks, not used as hostages to pressure fugitive male relatives to surrender.
"U.S. forces do not take hostages, nor do we participate in blackmail activities," Lieutenant Colonel Clifford Kent, spokesman for the 3rd Infantry Division, said in a statement.
Salima said U.S. troops in 30 Humvee vehicles showed up at their house just north of Baghdad at dawn last Saturday. One of them asked her for the whereabouts of one of her sons.
"I told him I would not give him the information because my three sons had already been detained by the Americans for a year and they were innocent. They said we would be detained until my son surrenders," she said.
