Let me make the obvious point about the kidnapping of Khalid Shaikh Mohammad's children (emphasis mine):
Yousef al-Khalid, nine, and his brother, Abed al-Khalid, seven, were taken into custody in Pakistan in September when intelligence officers raided a flat in Karachi which their father had fled hours earlier. They were found cowering behind a wardrobe with a senior al-Qaeda member.
The boys have been held in Pakistan, but this weekend they were flown to America to be questioned about their father.
CIA interrogators confirmed on Saturday that the boys were staying at a secret address.
"We are handling them with kid gloves. After all, they are only little children," said an official.
The interrogators are handling them with kid gloves, in America. But what about the six months when they weren't in America? Were they handled with kid gloves, do you think? In Pakistan?
