It takes a softer line on detainees than Ralph Peters does.

Update: Next-generationer Matt Zeitlin tweets at me this classic Peters meditation:

Of course, we shall hear no end of fatuous arguments to the effect that we can’t kill our way out of the problem. Well, until a better methodology is discovered, killing every terrorist we can find is a good interim solution. The truth is that even if you can’t kill yourself out of the problem, you can make the problem a great deal smaller by effective targeting.

So many presumed conclusions! I wish I got to do that in my own writing.
