More "Torture:" Interrogators Use Theology To Crack Jihadists

Great Christian Science Monitor article linked by John Hood at NRO's Corner.

An Islamic scholar is challenging Al Qaeda detainees to quote the Koran to justify their murderous ways. When they fail, some of them crack:

Some freed militants were so transformed that they led the army to hidden weapons caches and offered the Yemeni security services advice on tackling Islamic militancy. A spectacular success came in 2002 when Abu Ali al Harithi, Al Qaeda's top commander in Yemen, was assassinated by a US air-strike following a tip-off from one of Hitar's reformed militants.

Thanks to NickS.

Some good news, finally. And I needed it. What, this being the day after Black Thursday and all.

Successes against terrorism don't make up for the loss of Jeff Gannon, but perhaps enough successes will begin to dull the pain.
