ABSTRACT
The article reports that of all the strategic blunders the administration of United States President George W. Bush has made in waging the global war on terror, most damaging to the reputation and values of the United States has been its treatment of enemy combatants. Press reports and debasing photographs from Abu Ghraib prison, along with allegations of maltreatment at Guantanamo and still secret CIA detention sites, have inflamed Arab and Muslim attitudes against the United States. As further stories on prisoner abuse emerge, the administration could find itself in the midst of a firestorm as intense as charges it manipulated pre-war intelligence.
