Behind closed doors

So far news reports appear centered on the apparent irony between the American soldiers' mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners in one of Saddam's old prisons.

How long will it be before journalists and commentators start to ask that if this is happening in Iraq, then what else may be happening in Guantanamo and other places where 'enemy combatants' are based?

When the British detainees were released from Cuba I did think some of the statements made by them seemed fanciful at best. Now I'm not so sure.
