Simon: I think if I'd been detained for five years in such conditions and interrogated more than a hundred times, I might just confess.

Eric: You wouldn't be detained. That's the whole point. You are identifying with the enemy. Perhaps you should identify with those who were killed in the Tube Bombings? I hear nothing about them.

Instead, from Omar and Andy, I hear pity for Slobo and Ted Bundy. What's next, grief over the long imprisonment of Charles Manson?

We are all dying animals. What matters is not the length of our lives but what we do while alive. Monsters like Zarqawi and Ted Bundy are best killed quickly. In time we will join them in death, but in the meantime, the world is better for the living.
