No Blood, No Foul

Today’s NYT has a long article about yet another American military unit that not only specialized in torture, but positively delighted in it. The signature innovation of this elite and secretive group, Special Ops Task Force 6-26, was the use of detainees as paintball targets. They even had “No Blood No Foul: High Five Paintball Club” placards.

Lovely.

One other strange note: The angry memo from Undersecretary Of Defense For Intelligence Stephen Cambone to Lt. General William Boykin demanding an investigation of Task Force 6-26 was dated… 6/26/04. I don’t know if that was pure coincidence, or some kind of elaborate wink-wink, but Boykin claimed he found no evidence of misconduct. Maybe he just adheres to the “organ failure” standard of misconduct…

Hey, how’s that “winning hearts and minds” thing working out for us?
