The Globe & Mail’s Ken Wiwa ponders the Pentagon’s response to newly-released old photos from Abu Ghraib:
While the Pentagon was arguing the semantics of how this would play out for the security of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, a bunch of British soldiers were mercilessly beating the living daylights out of Iraqi youths on the streets of Basra, adding more fuel to the anti-Western fire.
Wrong. Those vicious beatings took place more than two years ago. Ever notice how opponents of the war don’t pay very close attention to, you know, the war? For example, that bunch of anti-war Kerry supporters Tim Dunlop met in Washington in 2004, not one of whom knew anything about Australia’s involvement?
You’d need a Fisk-level detachment from events to maintain that sort of ignorance. Fisk is shortly due to visit Australia (again); turn up at his speaking engagements to have these pieces by Efraim Karsh, Scott Burgess, and Amir Taheri autographed.
