US lawyers attack Israeli security agent "thugs"�

This article is mind boggling. Muhammad Salah, a US citizen, formerly convicted and imprisoned for five years in Israel after what he claimed was 53 days of torture for being a Hamas supporter (at a time when Hamas was not considered a terrorist organization by the US) is now on trial for supporting Hamas—and the US prosecutor wants to use his signed confession (which he claims he only signed due to torture) against him.

Here's a story about how the Israel courts themselves have ruled the sort of torture supposedly used against illegal.

But wait. There's more. Part of his interrogation was witnessed by—Judith Miller.

Is this bizarre? Yes.

Here's another story telling another side, about how Salah might not have done anything wrong, and about possible complications involving Judith Miller and the Plame case.
