The Pentagon Goes Wimpy

The Pentagon apparently continues to yield to the bullying of the left, following the Abu Ghraib incidents. So far, no one has proven that those incidents were anything more than out of control MPs. Yet, Army interrogators, charged with unearthing plots to kill Americans by Islamic radicals, are virtually handcuffed. Take the following:
"In a Jan. 12 memo to U.S. military commanders worldwide, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz wrote that the military should not perform 'routine detainee body cavity exams or searches' because this invasive procedure 'may conflict with the customs of some detainees.'"
I don't know about you, dear reader, but the violent death of innocent Americans definitely conflicts with MY customs.

There is going to be hell to pay if we ever fail to thwart an attack that we could have learned about using just good old interrogation techniques, far short of what is conventionally thought of as torture.
