More on Fighting Terrorist Ideas

I liked how my previous post on this subject read. It was very positive, and I like being positive about the future. (I’m not very good at it.)

However, there’s a contrast which needs to be drawn, between the way Yemen (Yemen? Yemen!?!) is handling some prisoners and the way the US is handling some prisoners. I do not intend an apologia for Yemen’s abuses. However, the contrast with Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo is pretty striking.
