Open Thread

Today's starter: Patrick Frey (better known as Patterico in the blog world) has been doing a series of interviews with a military nurse who was stationed at the Gitmo prison for accused terrorists. In today's interview excerpt, the nurse talks about how detainees there commit violence against U.S. personnel and that the guards and they, not the staff, are the ones who have desecrated the Koran.

So why haven't we seen this kind of journalism from the liberal media? Are they really more willing to take the word of terrorists and their sympathizers over that of the American serviceman? Or is it just that prison abuse is a more sensational story? Or is it ultimately about being suspicious of Gitmo staff because their commander in chief is a Republican?
