A court marshall is not good enough for these people.

If these are genuine, the perps need an asswhoopin.

I dont give a crap about the prisoners, its more of the international fall out from this shit.

Its gonna give Kerry more ammo, as well as the damn leftists.

That's not as effective as it sounds--from where would we gain information?



Shoot first, shoot some more, then when everyone is dead, then ask some questions.

But, once they are all dead, we dont need info

OK, the prisoners are sub-human terrorist scum that don't deserve to live. Then shoot them and be done with it. Turning a US Military prison facility (even though it is an adhoc prison) into a homosexual torture chamber is pretty disgusting!

I just can't believe it deteriorated to this over there in the prisons. Wasn't there ONE soldier that would stand up and say, "THIS IS WRONG!"

Or remember something about the Geneva Convention?

Do we turn into animals? All of the photos show GIs smiling.

Turn them over to the Iraqi government to be tried in their court system. These f-ups will cause the world to cast doubt on ANY ACTION we take in the war on terror. The world,right this instant, is wondering what is going on down at Gitmo.

Our credibility was already hurting. Now it is shot.

The "abuse photos" consist of prisoners being stripped naked and subjected to humiliation.

Just thought I would take a moment to point out that these are things we do to our own people during E&E/POW training.

Things like sleep/sensory depravation, humiliation, physical stress and hunger, are LEGAL. If those photos bother you, I suggest you move to a world where wars are fought with nerf guns and whiffle balls.

I have to disagree with you on this one (reluctantly - since we see eye to eye on so many things).

It's either right or wrong, and what someone else did is completely irrelevant if we are a nation of principles. I am outraged by the actions, because these yahoos completely abused the authority they were given (in a military system, no less), and if the U.S. is going to take over a country and administer it as the "liberator" and "defender of freedom" than it's absolutely incumbent upon us to hold ourselves to a higher standard.

Plus, keep in mind that we don't know WHAT these guys are in prison for (they might be car thieves, not members of the insurgency), and these instances ocurred long BEFORE the civilan contractors were killed in Falluja (I belive the investigation into this began in January).


I do agree with you that this is NOT "torture" in any meaning of the word - it is humiliation and degradation of prisoners, and it is despicable behavior on the parts of the prison guards (unless it was part of interrogation, but officials have said it was not). Although the instances of rape and sodomy that are reported would PROBABLY rise to the techinical standard of "torture" - but I agree that none of the picture so far show "torture" in any meaning of the word. (So maybe I am agreeing with you, after all ).

So I supposed that rape, sodomy and murder don't bother you either? - because that's what the department of defense is investigating mutliple cases of.

(as I said above, I agree that THESE pictures are not "toture" they are just disgusting and stupid)

Editorial from Charleston WV paper today. While I don't completely agree, it does raise interesting points.

May 06, 2004
Torture

Iraq war outrage




ONE BY ONE, all of President Bush’s reasons for his Iraq war evaporated. Despite his claims, it turned out that Iraq didn’t possess ghastly germ weapons, wasn’t trying to make nuclear bombs, and wasn’t in league with suicidal fanatics who would bring those mass-murder instruments to America. Also, his claim that grateful Iraqis would greet U.S. troops as liberators wasn’t true.

In the end, the White House was left with only one justification: that the war removed a cruel dictator who tortured and murdered his citizens. But this assertion has been undercut a bit by the ugly revelation that abuses partly similar were committed by American occupiers — perhaps including West Virginians in a Cumberland reserve unit.

Reporters for “60 Minutes II” and The New Yorker revealed that Iraqi suspects were taken to the same prisons once used for torture under dictator Saddam Hussein. There, the suspects were stripped naked and tormented with hoods over their heads and wires attached to their genitals. Grinning Americans posed for photos with the naked victims.

An internal military report said the guards committed “sadistic, blatant and wanton criminal abuses,” including sodomizing one suspect “with a chemical light and perhaps a broomstick.” One prisoner brought in by CIA agents allegedly died under interrogation.

Although six low-ranking reservists have been charged criminally, their commander, Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, implied that military intelligence officers, CIA agents or contract mercenaries may have been behind the abuse. She noted that in one of the prisoner photos, 32 boots can be seen — so it’s obvious that more than six abusers were present.

Amnesty International, the worldwide human rights group, says it found “a pattern of torture” in the military prisons and received “scores” of abuse reports.

Monday’s Washington Post quoted several Iraqis who said they were seized from their homes, taken to stockades, beaten severely, kept blindfolded by hoods, and subjected to shrieking rock music designed to keep them awake for days while they were questioned about insurgent resistance. The Post estimated that up to 7,000 suspects are kept in 16 Iraq prisons and military holding cells.

Meanwhile, London’s Daily Mirror printed photos of British soldiers beating a suspect with rifle butts and urinating on him. The paper said the man’s limp body was dumped from the back of a military vehicle and left.

All these disgusting reports undermine the White House assertion that America performed a noble mission by ending Iraq’s police state.

Their actions will directly contribute to the deaths of American servicemen.
They violated OpSec, the took photos of military installations, and activities therein, and then released them to the public, DAMAGING national security, and the war effort.
It's not about the specifics of what was done to the Iraqi POWs.

It takes a little more thinking to see the scale of this.

This is total non-sense..it will never happen again. The military justice will take care of the porn kids, there is nothing we can do to "make" the Arab world like us except leave. And we won't do that until there is Dem govt. in place. In order for the Iraqi's to ultimately succeed, they need us to leave. No stupid pictures of humiliation should de-rail that process.

This mentality of giving up over an action of some MTV mixed up kids trying to be funny is ridiculous. The only big picture we should focus on, is winning the war against terror. Period.

You dont understand anything. This is a world where the Sudanese, who wipe out villages and enslave blacks, sit on the UN's human rights committee. This is a world where Kofi Annan is promoted to Secretary General of the UN right after overseeing the genocide in Rwanda. This is a world where the US is accused of invading Iraq for oil, while Iraq's most prominent advocates in the rest of the world are paid off in oil bribes from the Iraqi government.

This is a world where there is universal condemnation of the US for mistreating terrorists in Cuba, despite giving them better living conditions they'd ever had before in their lives.

In short, if the US is anything less than Jesus-like in conduct, we are condemned. Our enemies could act like monsters, and they'd get a pass.

We are hated hated and condemned even when we do what is right and just. If we act reprehenibly, as we did in those prisons in Baghdad, the impression placed on the world is WORSE than say, the genocides of Rwanda. It doesn't matter if these crimes were done by low-level criminals. The United States is so hated when we do the right thing, when we do the wrong thing, we will be crucified.

I know the crimes committed are trivial in the grand scheme of things. The issue isn't WHAT was done, the issue is WHO did it. And these fucking hicks who did it have more influence over global opinion than all of our ambassadors combined.

This is the truth. Unfortunately.

I understand this simple fact guy.
We are the most powerful nation on the face of this planet.


We need to stop trying to understand others and they had better start understanding us. Mess with our nation and we will kill you. Kill our people and we we kill you.

The United Nations is for diplomats , Iraq is a place for soldiers, the two have different jobs, different goals.


Like I said ------------ they had better start understanding us, leave our country alone and stop killing our people it is that simple, because we are dealing with people one step removed from the stone age.

You know, this could work in our favor too...Psych warfare...You have these arabs telling eachother that they must commit suicide before they get captured because they have seen how the Americans treat prisoners....

Always save one bullet....

You know what would put Bush in good standing again? I hate to say it, but Rumsfeld needs to take one for the country. He needs to get the axe..Fire him and watch Bush's ratings go up... Someone has to be the scapegoat...What we do to punish the American's that did this, I can guarantee you, WILL NOT be sufficient enough for the arab world. Getting rid of Rumsfeld might make things a bit better and save a few of our boys.

What else is wrong, these soldiers are now in fear for their lives and the lives of their families. They will be for the rest of their lives. Their pictures and names are all over the news. They have even been typed here a few times. Don't be suprised if a couple of them aren't found with suicide notes next to what used to be their skulls...

This whole thing is getting way blown out of proportion. This GD war. I don't see any problem humiliating the enemy to soften him up. Who knows this may have actually saved lives. The arabs hated us before this happened. So who gives a shit what they think. The f*ing "arab street" now knows we are serious.

Well, you might want to get on the phone to the Intelligence school at Fort Huachuca where they
train all the Army interrogators. They seem to be under the misguided notion that it's not legal. I guess they must be confused.

This is in today's edition of the Tucson daily Star and attributed to the Ft Huachuca PAO.

Rules For Interrogators

"Rules for interrogators

°Fort Huachuca has legal guidelines used to train students. Included in the rules:

Tactics such as beating, physical or mental torture, sleep deprivation, withholding of food or infliction of pain are prohibited by numerous international laws and treaties.

If interrogators have any doubt about the lawfulness of a method, they are supposed to ask themselves two questions. One is whether a reasonable person would feel rights were being violated. The other test is whether the same action would be acceptable if done to a U.S. soldier.

If still in doubt, soldiers must refrain from action and seek a legal opinion from a military lawyer.
