Try A Little Harder Next Time

An Iraqi gang with the laughable name League of the Righteous have denied that they tortured a Briton whom they detained in 2007 and released last December. The detainee, who was captured outside the finance ministry on suspicion of working for a rogue state, claims that he was beaten, hung up by the arms and at one point subjected to a mock execution. The League of the Righteous deny all this, and also deny that the detainee was renditionised to Iran, although the evidence of Britain's leading liberal newspaper and General David Petraeus is against them. They did not claim that the detainee deserved what he got or that being beaten, strung up and having a gun at one's head doesn't really hurt. This demonstrates that, even after seven years of friendly tuition, groups like the League of the Righteous still have a very imperfect grasp of western values.

    That's beginning to sound like luxury accommodations.

    The group, Asaib Ahl al-Haq,
    I'm not an arabic speaker,but anyway...
    Ahl-in english,people
    al-Haq-in english,the Truth
    I've no idea what Asaib means.It's always worth bearing in mind that our media has brought us such bastardised words as jihadi,which,if not utterly meaningless,would mean someone residing in or from jihad,rather than the correct form mujahid,or plural,mujahideen.
