And LC & IB Jay of Stop the ACLU is already all over it. Must-read.
Allegedly, we’re “taking wives of terrorists hostage” to get the bad guys.
Even if it were so, I wouldn’t give a good shit. You marry a terrorist, you get what you fucking deserve. Of course, the allegations are, as usual, built on very flimsy evidence, but such is always the case when the openly subversive, traitorous, terrorist-aiding-and-abetting organization ACLU is involved. Not that we’re trying to demonize them. That would be silly and, as the Instapundit points out, “they do good work.”
So what’s it all about this time? Glad you asked:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. forces in Iraq, in two instances described in military documents, took custody of the wives of men believed to be insurgents in an apparent attempt to pressure the suspects into giving themselves up.
Well, if the legendarily objective and unbiased al-Roto-Reuters are saying it, it just has to be true, so we guess we should just stop here and leave well enough alone. Right.
Both incidents occurred in 2004. In one, members of a shadowy military task force seized a mother who had three young children, still nursing the youngest,
I don’t really give a good fuck how many little terrorists-in-waiting she had suckling at her breast. She was married to a child murderer and, as such, might know something that could help us get the subhuman slime before he murdered again, period. Boo-hoo-fucking-hoo.
…”in order to leverage” her husband’s surrender, according to an account by a civilian Defense Intelligence Agency intelligence officer.
“According to a civilian intelligence officer”, whatever the fuck that might be. Another “whistleblower” who got upset because he didn’t get to run the show and decided to betray classified information to get back at the bastards who didn’t recognize his G-d-like intelligence and skills. Of course, it couldn’t have anything to do with the fact that the wife of a terrorist might, conceivably, know where we could find her hubby.
Find him. Prosecute him. Hang him. If we don’t start cracking down on those blabbermouthes right quick, we might as well give up on the whole concept of “classified information” and start filing daily reports of everything we do with the New York Slimes.
In the other, an e-mail exchange includes a U.S. military officer asking “have you tacked a note on the door and challenged him to come get his wife?”
The documents were among thousands obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union from the government under court order through the Freedom of Information Act.
We’re at fucking WAR, people! How the everloving FUCK does information pertaining to our forces on active duty’s methods fall under the FOIA?
Hang that treasonous asshole judge as well.
“This is not an acceptable tactic,” ACLU lawyer Amrit Singh said on Friday, referring to seizing a wife to try to catch a husband,
…a statement we’d be a lot more likely to be interested in if it wasn’t coming from an openly terrorist-supporting organization. As it is, only they, the treasonous Fourth Estate and Glenn Reynolds are likely to give a good damn. Consider the source, say we.
“nor are any of the other abusive techniques acceptable. We know that abusive techniques were employed in a systemic manner across Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.”
Yet, after having gained inappropriate access to thousands of documents, this is the best you can come up with by way of concrete examples instead of unsubstantiated allegations, libel and slander? Pardon us if we’re not exactly impressed.
Paul Boyce, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon, said: “It’s very hard, obviously, from some of these documents to determine what, if anything, actually happened. … When you see an individual e-mail note, it’s oftentimes very confusing to figure out how that particular case fits into an overall, larger puzzle.”
Indeed it is. But, as has been proven so often in the past, the Seditious Socialist Scum aren’t interested in the larger puzzle. They’re interested in meaningless soundbites that they can blow out of proportion in order to undermine our troops and assist their terrorist allies.
Boyce also said the military has thoroughly looked at “any allegation against soldiers of misconduct or abuse of detainees.”
A June 10, 2004, memo written by the DIA employee, labeled as “secret,” referred to “violations of the Geneva Convention” relating to detainee abuse and illegal detention of noncombatants.
It had BETTER turn out that the “secret” mentioned here was scribbled in crayon by the “whistleblower” and not an official classification or we REALLY want to see the judge issuing the court order dangling from his sagging nutsack.
It described the actions of Task Force 6-26, which has been mentioned in other documents in connection with allegations of detainee abuse, and stated that on May 9, 2004, task force personnel detained the wife of “a suspected terrorist” in Tarmiya, Iraq.
Get over the scare quotes already, al-Roto-Reuters. You’re not fooling anybody anymore.
Yes, he’s a suspect. Yes, he’s suspected of being a terrorist. That makes every single person known to have been in contact with him and possibly holding knowledge about his current whereabouts a “person of interest” to the investigation, and we do believe that his wife would fall under that category, even if she’s got a whole dozen of piglets swarming her nipples.
“The 28-year-old woman had three young children at the house, one being as young as six months and still nursing. Her husband was the primary target of the raid, with other suspect personnel subject to detainment as well,” the memo stated.
“During the pre-operational brief, it was recommended by TF (task force) personnel that if the wife were present, she be detained and held in order to leverage the primary target’s surrender,” the memo stated. Its author said that “I objected to the detainment of the young mother to the raid team leader” and “I believed it was a dead issue.”
Good for you. You had reservations and you pointed them out to the team leader. That’s your right and correct procedure. Now shut the fuck up.
The memo stated that “I determined that the wife could provide no actionable intelligence leading to the arrest of her husband.”
You did, did you? All by your lonesome without ever having even talked to the woman? Damn, it must be wonderful to be an all-seeing, omniscient, clairvoyant little Boy Wonder like that. You don’t need to be in the news. You need to be in therapy.
“Despite my protest, (the) raid team leader detained her anyway,” stated the memo, whose author officially reported the incident within the chain of command.
And then, when that failed to produce the desired result of having you crowned King of Intelligence while the unwashed lesser beings around you groveled at your divine feet, you got pissed off, didn’t you? Narcissists with delusions of adequacy as pervasive as yours tend to react that way, you see. We’ve seen it so many times that we’ve lost count. So you decided to get back at the bastards holding you and your obviously superior skills down, didn’t you? Of course you did, you pathetic little maggot shitbird.
Have him dragged outside and shot before I lose my lunch on him, if you please.
The memo said the wife was released two days later to the custody of a tribal sheik.
A suspect in a terrorist investigation in a time of war was detained for two whole days!?
Oh. The. HUMANITY!!!
Bleeding heart pissants.
In the other case, a U.S. lieutenant colonel e-mailed, “What are you guys doing to try to get the husband — have you tacked a note on the door and challenged him to come get his wife? … or something more sophisticated, I suspect, from the ‘not necessarily the cool guys, but the guys with the cool stuff?”‘
Sounds like a perfectly good idea to me. Unless you’d prefer that we cut off her fingers one by one and send them back to the husband, of course. That’d work for me too. Pardon me if I’m not exactly all jellified with sympathy for the wife of a fucking TERRORIST.
A later e-mail stated, “These ladies fought back extremely hard during the original detention. They have shown indications of deceipt (sic) and misinformation.”
Poor things must have been relying on Reuters for news.
So that’s it, ACLU?
But then again, so are you. Pathetic to the point where we’d almost feel sorry for you if you were blindfolded and led before a firing squad.
