Mali Government Waterboards Rebels

Well, good. At least Obama will have solid Republican support for this one:

“Three suspected jihadists arrested in the days since the liberation of Timbuktu said Friday that Malian soldiers were torturing them with a method similar to waterboarding.

“The three are being held in an earthen cell in what remains of the military camp in the town, which was freed this week by French and Malian soldiers after nearly 10 months under radical Islamist rule.”

Any further blowback against the U.S., its allies and interests are purely coincidental.

Update: According to Alan Boswell at McClatchy there are now rumors of a Tuareg-French-Chadian alliance against the Islamists. I’m sure Petraeus will get all the credit.
