Red Cross New RW Enemy

The wingnuts are at it again. Now the enemy is the Red Cross “and its ilk”. Red Cross Demands Access to Terrorists,

This is not exactly news. The ICRC and its ilk have long demanded that al-Qaeda terrorists, who represent an extremist ideology rather than a specific country, be accorded full protections under the Geneva Conventions. We note the story only to point out that despite the ICRC’s prodigious efforts on behalf of terrorist captives, there remain those insensible critics who insist that anti-American politics have replaced human rights concerns atop of these groups’ agenda.

Asking to see what’s going on in secret prisons becomes “efforts on behalf of terrorist captives” and “anti-American politics”. What’s next? Watch your backs.
