The second round of Abu Ghraib photos
...why you can't see what your tax dollars are paying for
The images, Rumsfeld told Congress, depict "acts that can only be described as blatantly sadistic, cruel, and inhuman." After Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) viewed some of them in a classified briefing, he testified that his "stomach gave out." NBC News reported that they show "American soldiers beating one prisoner almost to death, apparently raping a female prisoner, acting inappropriately with a dead body, and taping Iraqi guards raping young boys." Everyone who saw the photographs and videos seemed to shudder openly when contemplating what the reaction would be when they eventually were made public.
Officials have given two legal reasons for suppressing images of prisoner abuse: "unwarranted invasion of privacy" and the potential impact on law enforcement..
But we all know the real reason - if people see what Bush's bloody invasion has caused, even the right-wing, "Bush 'til the Rapture" super-Christians might agree that murder and raping young boys is wrong.
Can't have that.
