There isn't much that I can think of....

....that's more disgusting and infuriating than this. For the past two years the media has devoured every story of terrorist attacks and eagerly discussed and displayed every terrorist video threatening to behead some poor soul who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. NOT ONCE!! has the media expressed any concern for the victims or their rights.

Now the police in Mosul have turned the tables on the terrorists, using video tapes of them confessing and cowering in fear after being captured to dispel the myth that the terrorists are fierce warriors or devout followers of Allah.

So what does the NY Times and the left have to say about the videos?
Some people said they found the practice of showing the insurgents on television troubling.

[Guess who? —ed.]

Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch said such tactics raised the issue of whether the people were tortured or otherwise coerced into making the statements. Last week the organization issued a report based on interviews in Iraq that "found the abuse, torture and mistreatment of detainees by Iraqi security forces to be routine and commonplace," said Ms. Whitson, the executive director of the group's Middle Eastern division. For example, she said, the police often described detainees as guilty before any trial had occurred and made them available to journalists to be photographed.
We should line these idiots up at the airport and ship them to Saudia Arabia. Let them find out what REAL human rights violations are. I swear if anyone talks like that around me I'll deck them on the spot.

Pusillanimous pissants.
