Instapundit has an excellent rebuttal of Andrew's hysterical attacks on his comments about Loo-gate. In the same vein, it is particularly interesting to note how the scepticism with which any statement by the US military is greeted suddenly disappears if an Islamist detainee (who has been trained to do so, see page 16) claims he has been tortured or mistreated. Mind, I am absolutely not denying that a few soldiers have comitted crimes and they should be severely punished, but the double-standard is telling. Also see this excellent post for an interesting take on the most recent developments and media reactions (all via Instapundit).
