Army policy: Stop scaring terrorists

Reacting again to criticism of interrogation tactics against captured terrorists, the US Army has issued new guidelines.

Soldiers are now forbidden to scare detainees too much.

According to news reports about the new guidelines, it is now against Army policy to scare terrorists by dunking their heads under water, or by making dogs bark at them.

Meanwhile, the terror suspects at Guantanamo enjoy daily food menus, medical attention above and beyond the norm for US citizen prisoners, free legal representation by Center for Constitutional Rights lawyers bent on liberating them so they can resume their war against America, and other manners of US government pandering.

In the politically correct spirit of excessive transparency, the Army has published the field manual in full. Here's a link to a PDF version: Even the terrorists can read it from the Army website.
