Al Qaeda Handbook Instructs Terrorists To Lie About Treatment

Quoting a copy of al Qaeda's most extensive manual for how to wage war, Rowan Scarborough of the Washington Times, explains that al Qaeda terrorists are trained to lie to arresting authorities by claiming that they are being mistreated when arrested and put in Western prisons like the one at Guantanamo Bay.
'Prior to executing an operation, the commander should instruct his soldiers on what to say if they are captured,' the document says.'He should explain that more than once in order to ensure that they have assimilated it. They should, in turn, explain it back to the commander.' If captured, the manual states, 'At the beginning of the trial...the brothers must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them by state security before the judge. Complain of mistreatment while in prison.'
Let's keep this in mind when left wing radical groups like the ACLU and Amnesty International cry "gulag" when refering to U.S. controlled prison camps.
