    Detaining wives...

    Stardate 5229.4

    This story is somewhat alarming considering the rest of the issues the US has had to deal with, cover up or lie about with regards to the War on Terror and Iraq.

    Military documents show that several times the US army has detained the wives of suspected insurgents in order to force them to surrender to authorities... This tactic is another example of how the knights in shining armor are using somewhat questionable tactics in their quest to rid the world of terror...

    In one case, a secretive task force locked up the young mother of a nursing baby, a U.S. intelligence officer reported. In the case of a second detainee, one American colonel suggested to another that they catch her husband by tacking a note to the family’s door telling him “to come get his wife.”
    The US army has recently released 5 of 11 women being held for either "aiding terrorists" or planting explosives, neither of which could be proven. If these cases are true, then the denial made by Iraq's deputy justice minister, Busho Ibrahim Ali, is even more chilling. He says that hostage-holding was a tactic used by the Saddam regime and that they are not Saddam.

    Seriously, if someone detained my wife or son, I would likey admit to whatever they wanted in order to have them released.

    The more I think about this, the more I find myself wondering what is next. Maybe they could torture the wives to get suspected insurgents to turn themselves in. It's not like they will be sitting drinking tea and eating crumpets while waiting for their husbands to turn themselves in for a situation where they face a possible unknown amount of detainment and even worse...
