American GIs now beating the crap out of each other?

From this article, we have the jaw-dropping excerpt describing one Sean Baker, who got the tar beaten out of him while he was just posing as an uncooperative detainee at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba:

... Mr. Baker, 37, a former member of the 438th Military Police Company, said he played the role of an uncooperative prisoner and was beaten so badly by four American soldiers that he suffered a traumatic brain injury and seizures. He said the soldiers only stopped beating him when they realized he might be American.

The term "friendly fire" takes on a whole new meaning here, don't it?
