A story you won't find in the MSM

This week, Patterico starts a series of posts covering his exclusive interview with an Army psych nurse who had been stationed at Gitmo.

I know Zarqawi, the terrorist said to the American. I am going to have Zarqawi cut off your family’s head while you watch. Then he will cut off your head.

The terrorist said it all in a matter-of-fact way, looking the American straight in the eye.

The American was not frightened. There was little danger that the terrorist was going to carry out his threat . . . at least any time soon.

This is especially apropos at a time when some people cannot understand that terrorists are neither civilians nor lawful combatants and, therefore, not entitled to either the criminal justice system nor the rights of POWs.

Why doesn't Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions apply to Guantanamo detainees?

Does the possibility that at least some of the detainees may have no connection to terrorism bother you at all?
