Wow. This one hasn't even shown up in the national post in Canada, at least as far as I know!

Given the situation in Iraq, a confession is only useful when corroborated with independent evidence.

Right now, there's a lot of people who'll say whatever they think is needed to yank American policy in a given direction. (al Qaeda "operatives" being near the top of the list for 'likely bogus confessions')

Also, we don't know the circumstances under which the confession was provided. Given American treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, would _you_ believe a confession extracted under unknown circumstances?
