WASHINGTON — Aboard a Navy warship, U.S. investigators are likely playing good cop/bad cop, shouting and banging their hands on a table to get suspected al-Qaida operative Abu Anas al-Libi to give up key intelligence. That's what they're allowed to do, anyway. What interrogators shouldn't be doing is putting a hood over al-Libi's head, waterboarding him or depriving him of food.

"What interrogators shouldn't be doing is putting a hood over al-Libi's head, waterboarding him or depriving him of food."

It's unlikely that the interrogators will be able to extract any useful information from this guy, who is no doubt smart enough to keep his mouth shut until he reaches American soil -- at which time he'll receive all the rights and privileges of an American citizen in a criminal prosecution.

The left, having railed against Guantanamo and "torture" of terrorist detainees under Bush, is now hoist on its own petard when it comes to extracting any actionable intelligence from them.
