Symptoms of Corrupting Sickness

Since lately I’ve had my head in my own research, I missed this story about the three Navy SEALs being court-martialed for apparently giving a murdering terrorist scumbag a fat lip in the course of his capture.  A couple of websites urging support for these heroes are here and here.

As my regular readers know, I’ve been opposed to our continued involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan since early 2006.  Unlike so many others, however, I acknowledge that as long as we are fighting these wars, we should do so with the gloves off.  The current policy, assuming that it is worthy of the name, is to extend to our enemies the same constitutional protections due American citizens.  This is the worst combination imaginable.
