We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

Why Iraq prisoners no longer talking

U.S. military interrogators in Iraq tell Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin prisoners are doing far less talking since the publicity of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the crackdown on harsh techniques used in questioning them.

"Do you want to know why there are so many successful attacks – attacks that are not averted because of good intelligence?" asked one military source familiar with the situation. "Because we're getting next to nothing out of the prisoners. Our information flow has dried up."

Many of us saw this coming. Maybe if we offered them ice cream and told them we'd be their best friend. We really need to smarten up.
