Like I've said before, I don't like to dabble in politics, but articles like this make my blood boil. According to the latest news from the AP, one of the tactics the U.S. army uses to get "information" is to seize a "suspect's" wife. One of them was a 28 year old nursing mother of three young children, the youngest being 6 months old. They detained her for two days before an intelligence officer with a heart complained about it and let her go home. Think about it, that could be us if we were ever so unfortunate to live in a country like Iraq. Punishing women and children like this is barbaric, I especially feel for the mother and child. I nursed all my children and they never took well to a bottle. If I were to be kidnapped because the army thought my husband was an insurgent (which he is NOT!) my babies would starve because my husband would be incapable of feeding them. I can't even imagine the hell that family must have gone through at the hands of the U.S. Army. It is the height of cruelty to do this to women and children. I don't know how Bush sleeps at night.
