Those "goatherders" were NOT prisoners - -they did inform "the enemy" of the "US military patrol's position" and OUR men did. In the case of the "unarmed Iraqi man" he was NOT a prisoner, but if allowed to go free, would have informed "the enemy" of the patrol's position. It sounds as if you "prefer" live muslim informers and "dead US military"! Are you mentally deranged, or just a liberal? Oh, I forgot, it's one and the same!
