The Iraqi Torture scandal is worse than you thought..

EXCERPT:

?There are other photos that depict incidents of physical violence towards prisoners, acts that can only be described as blatantly sadistic, cruel and inhumane," he said. ?... It?s going to get a good deal more terrible, I?m afraid.?

Rumsfeld did not describe the photos, but U.S. military officials told NBC News that the unreleased images showed U.S. soldiers severely beating an Iraqi prisoner nearly to death, having sex with a female Iraqi female prisoner and ?acting inappropriately with a dead body.? The officials said there was also a videotape, apparently shot by U.S. personnel, showing Iraqi guards raping young boys.

Now that's embedded reporting.

I gotta wonder if the people takng these pictures were in on the abuse, or if they were trying to do something about it.

Are they heroes, or just stupid?

Rummy: "Let's not show the rest of these videos and photographs as that will really turn world opinion against us."

Naw, I think Bush & Co. have already damaged world opinion for a generation or more. Let's get everything out in the open. "The Truth shall set you free."

Dang good thing we never released the photos of Iraqi children with limbs and faces blown off because, "Americans are not really like that." Nope. We are the good guys and we fill our bombs and bullets with just a pinch of Christian love. We will keep showing them "love" until they finally "get it".

The proof is in the pudding.

A little off topic, but might these Iraqi Prisoner Abuse Scandals hopefully bring some insight to the abuses that go on in our domestic prison systems as well?

i doubt it. it seems to me like most of the focus is on this making more arabs hate us instead of it being a disgusting thing for people to be doing. at least this is how the media is covering it.
too bad though criminals are the most disenfranchised group in the country.
