The beasts in Iraq

Towards the end of last week, I found this on The Smoking Gun. It's an al-Qaeda torture manual. In it are not only drawings of how to conduct such barbaric practices, but also the tools to use. You can thumb through the images there, about twelve pages worth, and take heart in knowing that the MSM isn't telling anyone about this. We found this in a recent raid of an al-Qaeda safehouse. From The Smoking Gun:

In a recent raid on an al-Qaeda safe house in Iraq, U.S. military officials recovered an assortment of crude drawings depicting torture methods like "blowtorch to the skin" and "eye removal." Along with the images, which you'll find on the following pages, soldiers seized various torture implements, like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Photos of those items can be seen here. The images, which were just declassified by the Department of Defense, also include a picture of a ramshackle Baghdad safe house described as an "al-Qaeda torture chamber." It was there, during an April 24 raid, that soldiers found a man suspended from the ceiling by a chain. According to the military, he had been abducted from his job and was being beaten daily by his captors. In a raid earlier this week, Coalition Forces freed five Iraqis who were found in a padlocked room in Karmah. The group, which included a boy, were reportedly beaten with chains, cables, and hoses. Photos showing injuries sustained by those captives can be found here.

I'll warn readers right now that some of the images on those pages includes photos of torture victims and the bruises from repeated beatings. It's not a pretty. sight. However, what is a pretty sight is this from the AP. It seems that we're finding these places fairly regularly in Iraq, and today we freed 42 such captives of al-Qaeda:

U.S. forces raided an al-Qaida hide-out northeast of Baghdad on Sunday and freed 42 Iraqis imprisoned inside, including some who had been tortured and suffered broken bones, a senior U.S. military official said Sunday.

The raid was part of a 3-month-old security crackdown that included the deployment of 3,000 more U.S. troops to Diyala, a violent province north of the capital that has seen heavy fighting in recent weeks, said Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, the top U.S. military spokesman in Iraq.

Caldwell said Iraqis told U.S. forces about the hide-out: "The people in Diyala are speaking up against al-Qaida."

He said the 42 freed Iraqis marked the largest number of captives ever found in a single al-Qaida prison. Some of those freed were held for as long as four months and some had injuries from torture and were taken to medical facilities for treatment, he said.

You idiots on the Left get this finally? These are animals and this is what they do to inncoent people. Don't bring up the media-driven non-scandal of Abu Ghraib or Gitmo and claim what we're doing is torture. THIS IS TORTURE. Someone might want to drop this manual in the hands of John McCain and ask him if this is the sort of torture he believed we were engaging in. If his answer is "yes," someone needs to slap him. The United States doesn't condone or engage in torture. What the bleeding hearts call torture is nothing more than interrogations. Let our guys do their jobs and get what we can from these animals.
