The Islamic State (ISIS) released a video showing the Jordanian pilot, Moaz al-Kasasbeh,dressed in an orange jumpsuit standing in a see-through cage. Later, the pilot was doused with petroleum and set on fire. The cruelty, surpassing all bounds of civilization, is nauseating.
The ISIS has adopted the orange jumpsuit as the garment of revenge. The American and English journalists were dressed in orange jumpsuits before they were beheaded.
Americans invented the orange jumpsuit.The world first saw the orange jumpsuits at Guantanamo prison. Helpless Muslim detainees dressed in orange jumpsuits were shown sitting in a holding area under the surveillance of US military police at Camp X-Ray at Naval Base Guantanamo Bay.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was right on point when he said, "Terrorists do not function in a vacuum. They don't live in Antarctica. They work, they train and they plan. . ." It so appears that the terrorists noticed the orange jumpsuits at the Guantanamo Muslim prison.
The orange jumpsuit was also used when Muslim detainees were tortured in Iraq. The picture of a dog staring at the person wearing the orange jumpsuit was grotesque.
It was a reminder that even civilized nations are capable of subjecting human beings to utter humiliation. All was fair in war against "terrorists." Vice President Dick Cheney saw little harm in subjecting "terrorists" to degrading treatment.
