The Third Type of War Prisoner

Mike Houser makes a good catch of the erroneous categorization of war prisoners into three types by Charles Krauthammer at the Weekly Standard. Krauthammer makes a tortuous defense of retaining the option for torture, but divides war prisoners into ordinary soldiers, terrorists, and terrorists with information. Mike rightly inquires what about the innocent who are suspected of terrorism. Krauthammer conveniently ignores an uncomfortable category.
