More photos, these from the Washington Post
Click here for all the photos
Mixed in with more than 1,000 digital pictures
obtained by The Washington Post are photographs of naked men,
apparently prisoners, sprawled on top of one another while soldiers
stand around them. There is another photograph of a naked man with a
dark hood over his head, handcuffed to a cell door. And another of a
naked man handcuffed to a bunk bed, his arms splayed so wide that his
back is arched. A pair of women’s underwear covers his head.
The photographs were taken
by several digital cameras and loaded onto compact discs, which
circulated among soldiers in the 372nd Military Police Company, an Army
Reserve unit based in Cresaptown, Md.
So, the alleged humans responsible for this
were just passing out the photos like party favors, huh? And none of
their commanding officers had a clue. Yeah, right.

what we’ve seen apparently is mild compared to what is out there.. As I

Red Cross saying, “the photos are bad, but ours are worse”.
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said on Thursday it had
repeatedly urged the United States to take “corrective action” at a
Baghdad jail at the center of a scandal over abuse of Iraqi prisoners.
Yet Dubya pretends he didn’t know anything…
