“Killed in a brutal way”

Two soldiers who had gone missing were found today, and it appears that they were “killed in a brutal way and tortured,” according to an Iraqi military official. This is terrible, but is it a surprise? Expect Bush and others to decry the treatment of these soldiers, and not mention the government-sanctioned torture that’s been going on for years at Guantanamo, at Abu-Ghraib, and no doubt elsewhere. Expect to see this happen more often, as repayment for this administration’s disregard for human rights—hell, disregard for humanity.
