Moral Authority Is Still Fo' Suckas, Apparently...

Yet another Iraqi prisoner found dead while in the custody of the U.S. Marine Corps (and a Navy corpsman).

As I wrote earlier, more Iraqis and Afghanis have died in American custody since September 11, 2001 than American servicemen who lost their lives while enjoying the generous hospitality of the Mặt Trận Dân Tộc Giải Phóng Miền Nam.

Are there any wingnut lurkers who want to take this latest opportunity to make apologies for the sort of behavior that used to require regular and strident denunciations when it was done by the Viet Cong?

Yeah. That's what I thought. Pussies.

Update 1.0: Aw, hell. I just noticed that I overlooked an interesting detail to the story. The Iraqi prisoner in question was some guy named Hasham Ibrahim Awad, 54, a disabled veteran of Iraq's war with Iran in the 1980s.
