Soldier investigated ‘for touching Taliban suspect on nose with piece of paper’

A British soldier was investigated for touching a Taliban fighter on the nose with a sheet of paper during a routine interrogation, a former senior military intelligence officer has disclosed.
The soldier was accused of abuse for a minor infringement which broke rules concerning the touching of detainees during questioning.

On another occasion a military intelligence officer in Iraq was investigated for shouting in a suspect’s ear in case he burst an ear drum. The investigation took place four years after the alleged offence, according to the source.

The claims are being made by a former senior interrogator with the Army, who contacted The Telegraph in the wake of this newspaper’s disclosure that the rules governing interrogations are now so stringent that officers feel tactical questioning has become increasingly pointless.

And of course you have Haroon Siddiqui demanding Canada prostrate itself to the Muslims…

  • War is hell. Get use to it.

    But this is all part of the left’s goal to belittle Western Civilization.

    It is easy to see who’s side the left is on.

    • It ain’t ours;)

      These are symptoms of a dying civilization.

        These are symptoms of beta males running the show.

    Haroon can be ignored. His bias knows no boundaries.
    There are rules in war. Unwritten or not. But to handcuff ourselves for silly little rules like touching with a piece of paper or yelling at someone… we might as well give up.

    Canada must face up to its complicity in torture: Siddiqui

    First Islam must face up to its complicity in world-wide terrorism and 14 centuries of evil. Then we’ll talk.

    this soldier’s real mistake was with NOT putting 9 mm of lead in the Muslim terrorists head…

    I hate to say it again because it’s getting to be repetitive. The Toronto Star is by far the highest circulation newspaper in Canada. Bear that in mind. There must be an awful lot of people agree with this or no one would be reading the Toronto Star.

      Decline & Fall. It is just a question of time.

    I prefer interrogation with the 45 method. It leaves no one to complain about their treatment years later.

    Obviously west doesn’t want to win the war they’ve already surrendered. All these stupid rules & regulation binding ourselves to fight against our aggressors & oppressors are just a smoke screen to fool general population.
    Mohammedan terrorist kill & maim Non-mohammedans at will in the name of their allah, in west it’s considered a BIG crime for Non-mohammedan to inadvertently touch that mohammedan terrorist with a piece of paper.

      That qualifies as torture for the neo-marxists.

    Take no prisoners!

    The soldier should be investigated as to why he didn’t kick the living shit out of the prisoner.

    I have a doctor friend who refuses to take on patients who smoke. It’s a waste of his effort and a thankless task. Admitting muslim immigrants to share in the benefits of civilized countries is an even bigger waste of resources and just as thankless, as long as they don’t give up smoking thair allah weed.

    This is the sine qua non of bureaucratic idiocy!

    In today’s mad world, touching a terrorist on the nose with a piece of paper is deemed serious enough to diminish real crimes against decency, such as lopping off heads off and murdering babies.

    Only when the Left is properly shunted into oblivion, where it belongs, will civilisation stand a chance against the religion of peace and it’s ever growing stack of dead bodies.

      Awesome post!

    Can’t interrogate them? Might as well have a take no prisoners policy. Problem solved.
