Feith Returns To The ‘Bad Apple’ Argument
Tuesday, July 15, 2008 at 11:00 am
Doug Feith is shocked, shocked that anyone would have, say, “exploited Arab fear of dogs” — an approved Pentagon technique at Guantanamo Bay — inhumanely. “Those techniques were supposed to be done within the law and the decision by the President in favor of humane treatment,” Feith said. “There is no excuse whatsoever for any inhumane treatment.”
Yes, how could any interrogator or young soldier have possibly misunderstood clear instructions to “exploit Arab fear of dogs” but do so humanely? How could anyone have misunderstood that? “The issue isn’t whether a piece of paper applied,” Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) said, albeit in a different context. “The issue is what it meant in practice.”
