Call the waahmbulance full of ACLU lawyers and the Human Rights Watch! Remember the big fish the CIA just reeled in? Well, the International Herald Tribune has talked to all the usual suspects and they are outraged, outraged I tell ya, at his treatment.

Human rights advocates expressed anger that the United States continued a program of secret detention, and some wondered why the CIA claimed it needed harsh interrogation methods to extract information from detainees when it appeared that Iraqi had given up information using Pentagon-approved interrogation practices.

Whine and cheese anyone?

"The CIA can't seem to get its story straight," said John Sifton of Human Rights Watch. "If they can get good intelligence without using abusive techniques, why do they so desperately need to use the abusive techniques?" But he said that there was no way to know whether Iraqi had been mistreated, because "no independent monitors have been able to see him since his arrest."
