AlterNet: War on Iraq: Terrorism's Training Grounds or "Driving while Iraqi"

AlterNet: War on Iraq: Terrorism's Training Grounds: "'We used to call it DWI: Driving While Iraqi,' said Staff Sgt. Michael Nowacki, a military intelligence officer who strongly recommended the prisoner's release after his initial interrogation. Yet Hassen was not released.

Military officials call it a matter of security. Nowacki says it's an example of the arbitrary and dragnet-style arrests by the U.S. military in Iraq. A style that is more likely to create more terrorists than destroy them.

'I've actually had a commander tell me 'If I arrest ten people and one of them is bad, then I'm doing my job.' But what about the other nine?' Nowacki said."
