Barhorst: Foreign Interrogation Centers
Now some will quibble about my use of the word insurgent rather than resistance fighters. However, to hold water, any occupying power must claim the government they set up in a conquered and occupied country is legitimate. This historical reality allows me to use the word "insurgent" just as it is defined.
To my knowledge, the Native Iraqis never took part in a terrorist attack anywhere in the world except their own country. . . Neither did the French Maquis captured in Vichy who were sometimes transported to Poland, Hungary, and Romania to be interrogated.
The Bush administration has taken the country too far down a historically-condemned road. They appear to have the delusion that being of the fanatical Right makes all their aims and actions right.
