Are we this bad?

Declan posted a link to a Yahoo! news story about the streaker at the Super Bowl. For the hell of it, I followed the Op/Ed link on the left side of the page, and down to an article by UPI's Ted Rall about French attitudes towards the United States. In it, he includes a quote from an article in the New York Times Magazine from a member of the Iraqi governing council. The councillor speaks of US troops arresting relatives of insurgents, and destroying their houses.

This is exactly what the Israelis do to Palestinians. Is this for real? Are we actually doing that?

If so, this shit needs to stop yesterday, and the field commanders ordering and allowing this need to be strung up by their nutsacks. (Not to mention the administration figures, including the chief executive, who create the environment that permits it.)
