A sitting Presidents' blowjob costs the taxpayers 40 million at least, but these soldiers, who have done more to damage the US's image in the world for years to come than can probably be measured, gets the severest adminstrative reprimand. Rolling Eyes Mad

You have absolutely no sense of proportion do you?

They are not referring to those in the pictures or those that were responsible for the acts that took place.

The abuse, which apparently happened last fall, was reported to U.S. military commanders by a soldier in the 800th Military Police Brigade. That's right, one of the Army's own turned these idiots in. Anyway, a criminal investigation was launched the next day by the military. On January 19, the head of the U.S. military command in Baghdad , headed by Lt. General Ricardo Sanchez, requested a review of practices at the prison. The review was completed March 3. Also, in early February, the Army inspector general began a review of U.S. detention facilities. Yet another inquiry was started April 23, focusing on military intelligence. The ball is already rolling here, folks. These are pictures of old news, though just now becoming public.

The initial criminal investigation was finished way back on March 15, which resulted in 20 criminal charges against the six military police. Keep in mind, that's six misfits out of a military presence of 137,000 Despicable though the pictures may be, that's a pretty low occurrence of bad apples. The mainstream media has their panties in a knot because they say the pictures will "enrage the Arab world." Here's a newsflash for you: they hate us anyway. Of greater concern is how it will be perceived in Iraq, whose people we're supposed to be liberating. These six MP's and their little escapades are going to cost lives and waste time.

Again, what you say is true, but you display your total and obvious lack of concern for the wrongness of the act, for the humiliation of these people, "enemy" or not, and only care about how it will affect our mission. Staggering and total lack of humanity from an ardent supporter of the good guys.

Because I am not wailing about it and heve tears rolling down my cheeks whining about the poor, innocent iraqi's?

Please. I, in no way, shape or form, condone the actions of those criminals who would perpetrate such acts as what went on inside those prison walls.

However, if by humiliating those prisoners they give up information on the insurgency, the location of leaders, weapons, or other intelligence, then so be it. Next time, leave the camera at home.

Thank you for showing what you are. Irrefutably. Very Happy
