Human Rights Watch: Iraqi POW’s “Treated Well”

Kaus notes a story I heard myself on NPR this morning: that Human Rights Watch has conducted independent interviews with POW’s who surrendered to Kurdish forces in Northern Iraq. Kaus notes the interviewer’s conclusions that the Iraqi’s suffered terrible treatment at the hands of their own commanders, but he breezes right by the other major news of the piece:
“The Iraqi soldiers all reported good treatment by the Kurdish forces to whom they had surrendered….All of the detainees interviewed by Human Rights Watch said that they had been treated well by the Kurdish Pesh Merga
