If you're a Muslim extremist captured while fighting your holy war against "infidels," an official al Qaeda training manual tells you to avoid revealing information at all costs, don't give your real name and claim that you were mistreated or tortured during your detention. This instruction comes straight from the pages of an the official al Qaeda training manual, and officials at the detention facility at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have said they see clear evidence that detainees are well-versed in its contents.

Today, In The Bullpen points to the latest grandstanding by Jose Padilla and his claims of torture and abuse - a la Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, and calls attention to how closely Padilla is following the al-Qaeda manual.

Catch it all here.
