Cheney Fights for Detainee Policy

Via Hit and Run, which is all a twitter over these things an interesting article about the effort to impose tighter restraints on the treatment of prisoners. Dick Cheney wants to provide exemptions for certain categories.

I have no burning desire to start sharpening bamboo shoots but it seems that it is a mistake to create laws that so strictly bind the hands of people who are supposed to get info from bad guys. Especially in an age in which we hear complaints of pop music being a form of inhumane treatment.

One thing you have to give al Qaeda credit for is they do know how to work the system and they do teach their people all the ropes. We shouldn't be making it easier for them.
