Do You Remember Stalag 17 ?

There’s a scene in the movie where a POW gets a letter from his wife that says something like “you’re not going to believe it, but I found a baby on our doorstep” and “you’re not going to believe it, but it looks just like me.” The poor guy just can’t bring himself to confront the obvious, so he sort of goes into a trance, saying “I believe it” over and over again.

Well, that’s how I think most pro-torture “war on terror” mongers must react when they read articles like this one:

Detainee in Photo With Dog Was 'High-Value' Suspect

Sure, US interrogators threatened him with a dog, but only because he was deemed a “high-value” suspect—nicknamed "al-Qaeda," no less. He was so very high value, in fact, that he was subsequently released.

Repeat after me: I believe it…I believe it…
