Abu 2

According to the latest buzz, there is coming to an FTP site near you, is the 'rest of the story' at Abu Ghraib. Evidently, members of Congress have witnessed some filth which is evil on par with the Nick Berg video, done by our guys.

That bile is rising in the collective throats of hawks is a good sign that we are getting to the bottom of the naked pyramid, and that there's more than has previously met the eye.

It makes me a bit more settled that this is coming to light, because the level of indignity we have thus far been led to believe the prisoners were suffering has been marginally excuseable or if not excuseable at least nothing that sounds so extraordinary in the world of suffering. Hitch calls it a 'Moral Chernobyl'.

Again, I will advise folks to leave this evidence to those who can describe it with words. Watching will be hazardous to your sensitivity.

The Abu Ghraib pix have been in the medias' files for many months, but CBS chose to start releasing the at a curious time - the start of May Sweeps. They've been dribbled out over the past 7 weeks to create a maximum prolonged impact on the US.

I doubt they ever anticipated the impact on the Islamic world.

Such is the price of a free media.

But the "entertainment" end of the media serpent doesn't like to admit its culpability in raising a generation of American youth who have grown up with violent movies, video games, and "Survivor" trash.

Our boys beheadded some Iraqis? Interesting.

U.S. GIs committed atrocities in Italy during WWII. It's also documented fact that U.S. soldiers raped women in France - a country they were supposed to be freeing. All sorts horrible crimes were committed by Union soldiers all over the South, in what was really their own country.

U.S. soldiers committing crimes in places where they are waging war is nothing new. Until human organizations find something other than humans to run them, I think the criminal element will keep cropping up despite our best efforts.
