The guilt or innocence of these people is irrelevant at this point. Children being raped in a US facility is unacceptable.
There was an older thread about this, if I recall correctly. All that we have is a claim that these things happened, and that there are
pictures to prove it. The pentagon is not releasing any pictures from abu garab, citing that they'd represent a danger to the soldiers in the field.
The senate (or congress as a whole??) saw some of the unreleased pictures, and people remarked that they depicted scene that were far, far, far more
depraved than anything shown in the 'lyddie england' photos or any photos released thus far.
But, agian, what is Hersch's source? Its preposterous to accept his statements or the statements of his informants as true, citing the inability of
the other side to prove that it didn't happen. Please show that these things are true before blindly stating that they are.
Given all this, its imperative upon the pentagon to simply release all these photos and have full disclosure. Its hardly relevant that it will
inflame muslims across the world, there is a far higher goal here of justice, and also preventing these sorts of things from happening
I mean, no where has anyone claimed that it was just lyndie england and her cohorts involved in these things, meaning there are other
people, probably still in charge over there and still working and still doing these things. Also, the horrendous scope of these clear wrongful
acts and crimes really puts the pressure on to punish the nitwits and incompetents who were in charge over there and enabled, permited, or in
any other way made it possible for these things to happen, and the slackjawed moronic goons who are covering it up, to be removed from the
military and, why not, even executed for providing fodder to the enemy that enables them to kill more american and coalition troops!
