Somewhere I recall the insurgents committing abuse.

Why do we not hear you complaining about that?

Next time try to read the article.

"The Iraqi security forces obviously face tremendous challenges, including an insurgency that has targeted civilians," Ms Whitson said.

"We unequivocally condemn the insurgents' brutality. But international law is unambiguous on this point: no government can justify torture of detainees in the name of security."



And was that moral relativism? I thought that was a no no for the neo-cons and their blind supporters.
