The Man in the Hood Speaks

In the current issue of Vanity Fair (February 2005, Star Wars cover) there's a story about the man who may be the subject of the most infamous Abu Ghraib torture photos, as well as some of the other innocent Iraqis detained by US forces. It's not online, but there's an exchange from his interrogation session I want to share. I'm not sure if it's interesting, funny or just sad.

"Where is Osama bin Laden?"
"Osama bin Laden is in Afghanistan," he replied.
"How do you know?"
"I heard it on the news."
"What is your plan? What are your plans to resist the Americans coming to occupy you?"
"I thought the Americans came to liberate us."
"Are you anti-Semitic? Do you hate Christians? Do you hate Christianity? Do you hate Jesus Christ?"
"No. Why would I hate them?"

What are we doing there?
