Telling the truth has become the exception rather than the norm when it comes to politics, wars, and torture.

And the fact of the matter is that the CIA is still having its way with detainees that shouldn't be there in the first place. So yeah, you're right- it doesn't serve the CIA's purpose, that's for sure. And it doesn't serve Obama's purposes either to tell the public what's really going on.

The only worthy purpose it would serve would be to tell the public the truth. And current MSM has bylaws against this... Deception: Mandatory operation for the NWO.

I am sorry some sick whack job assaulted you, really I am; but, that does not give you a reason to accuse soldiers of rape because aslant a less the credible website says so. You stated that you have a feeling that these photos are sexual in nature but really it’s probably more of the same crap. The Soldiers who committed this acts are in prison and will be there for sometime, there is no need to incite more violence. Also From what I understand some of these vids and photos are of Iraqi Police doing it to Iraqi prisoners not Americans.

Alright, I guess I'll weigh up on this one... It's a tough subject for me, honestly, because I can see both sides of the argument pretty clearly.

On the one hand, I do firmly believe in transparency and full accountability. From that aspect, I do believe the pictures should be released, let us take our lashes and get it over with. Hiding them doesn't make them go away, it just prolongs the finger pointing and anger.

On the other hand, so you see snuff pics released by the police? How often do you get pictures of dead or badly beaten people released by investigators? Most people don't want to see that and the people involved (the victims and family of victims) usually don't want the world to see what happened to them either. Bad enough that they have to relive it in their minds, now the entire world gets to see it as well?

I tend to lean more towards the fact that it would be disrepectful to release the pics. Alright, we'll own up to it. We'll accept that it happened and release the names of those involved. But at the very least, if we release the pics, let's at least obfuscate the faces of the victims. Course then all of the nay sayers will just say "how do we know that those people are really terrorists" or whatever.

*shrug* I just don't really see this one as a cut and dry issue.

I disagree. I think he is being very transparent. He's lying, cheating and stealing, but he's doing it all out in the open.

The good old US is using a lot of gun powder in a lot of places. The people in those places are really mad at us. We invaded tham based on lies. Of course they are going to be violent towards us. Wouldn't you?

The pictures don't matter. We the PEOPLE don't really WANT to see them. Why? Because then we would have to take a little bit of responsibility and LIVE with it.

We know it's going on. We know it hasn't stopped. The only change that has been made is for the worst. We've sent more troops, spent more money, stepped up drone attacks into OTHER countries for Pet's sake.

If you are intent on breaking the laws and you get caught, you will merely change your tactics. There is no accountability. If the pictures came out, what would we think of our leader then?

I don't think it's about our troops. I think it's about trying to save his own backside.

HERE IS A REALLY NOVEL IDEA!! If you do not want people to be upset about the way you are treating their countrymen, then stop torturing them.

No people being mistreated means there will be no pictures of people being mistreated.

I am so sick of torture being called "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques". That is the exact same thing as calling rape an "Enhanced Lovemaking Technique".






Kill all your enemies on the battlefield. Take no prisoners. Torture no one.

Where is the Proof? Give me a link to a news sources that says this happen not a wiki or you tube link.


What a hell are you talking about!

I told you It's not American soldiers in that photo of Iraqi woman posted here.

I said they are eastern European troops under U.S command in Iraq.

In THAT specific photo!

WHAT LINKS TO PROVE WHAT??



So I am to believe your word that these are eastern European troops committing this “rape” under American command. I highly doubt that. Where did you get the photo?

Most likely off tube8 or youporn.

How about you tell us where this photo is taking from?



All I know is that this photo and among many others from rapes like 10-12 pictures in total where out on the net on European military sites 2004-2005 together with many other photos with reply on the forum from European Nato officers who were very very sorry for that these rapes had occured, and begged us! the people & soldiers on the forums to not spread these pictures around any further!

But they turned up later on eastern European porn sites, so the cat was out of the bag so to say!

I know this from an personal perspective because as an ex-soldier I used to visit these forum by that time when it happened!

These Nato people had adresses and telephone numbers to Nato here in Europe so I suppose those officers were legit as well! So they also knew what had happened and wanted by that time to suppress that by all means possible.

By that time, there were also on the forums the guys who provided us to see the pictures, and they told us they had been swapping pictures In Iraq with American personnel and so they showed us those Abu Ghraib American rape photos as well!

These eastern guys were from Bulgaria, Poland , and some Romanian and Ukrainian soldiers as well! But most of them were contractors working in Iraq as Mercenaries payed by the ??

There were also some South africaans and South Americans there in Iraq, but not big in numbers.

Some of them were bragging of their rapes! and said some of their officers knew about it and that it was the cold reality & modus operadi in war times, and that even some Americans did this - as we have seen of the photos, both me and others!

And to tell you the truth I was not surprised because I saw some heavy pictures from 'Serbian soldiers rapes' in Bosnia some year earlier when I was in the Balkans!

There I also saw pictures and videos of people & children in small villages that they poured gasolin (the thick stuff) over and filmed while these poor people were burned alive screaming! - the usual modus operandi was to put all people in the village mosque and then burn it down.

But these video/photos were worse because they showed individual people burning alive - even small children mind you! - like in hell!

And it was hell on Earth there I tell you, because one time we entered a village while it was burning, so I saw the after effects of these crime with my own eys! - I can still remember the awful smell when I close my eyes!

All these photos were no secret in military soldier circles 2003-2005 they were all over the interenet then!

Peace my brother in arms! - please! don't feed your hate! because if you do! they have won, and the demons comes after you - the rest of your life!

In this case I can not understand your modding - even if you think you are right in this - you are not fair doing so!

Suppose there are valid evidence for some arguments here in the future?

Then we are not allowed to post this because of some rules that can hinder our argument in a important question? - like this

Are you taking sides here?

Do I make any sence?

These pictures that were posted are FAKES, they belong to a porn website, and they are not real. While I do believe that some Americans and Allied forces committed some heinous crimes they were punished severally. There is no need to show false pictures, once again these pictures belong to a porn video an I am sure if you found they video you would here cheesy eastern Europe porn music. Com on they had Black Face paint on who wears that when you are guarding prisoners? If you really wanted to do that crap you could have worn your gator neck or bachaliva.

"All these photos were no secret in military soldier circles 2003-2005 they were all over the interenet then!"

I dont know what circles you ran with in the miltary, but real true soldiers dont do this crap.

Man i'm soo sorry for asking you this but are you insane??

I said they turned up on porn sites everywhere in the world later, but that doesn't mean they are fake from the beginning!

You don't know what you are talking about!


What a hell it's the matter with you? are you so terribly brainwashed that you can't think clear?

And why are you defending mercenaries under U.S command , you can't be serious doing this?

And for that person who said something! -Many girls and wimmen in Iraq are using make-up and eye-liners!

Man! I have landed in a mental asylum!

Sir, I have these pictures are part of a porn video, I have provided links in another post on this thread that prove they are fakes. If you recall in 2004-2005 there was a big stink about it raised when in fact it was all a hoax because it was a porn.

Now I am not doubting that some soldiers have commited crimes, they have been punised accordingly but to keep running with a lie where there is no actual facts is insane in itself.

www.boston.com...

this is for the lies that are being reported as facts. It is a porno case closed.

Photos or not the truth is the truth.

Trying to make this appear as a moment of heroism on Obama's part is insulting. The very fact that his administration were seeking to politicize this and other war related issues are completely disgusting, and should display to anyone with a minimum of national pride and patriotism that he and his administration will stop at nothing to score a political point or two.

The reports behind these "photos" have been well known since 2004 when it was reported (without pictures) does anyone really need to see them now?

This was a way to dig up bones and was a pathetic attempt to throw dirt on the previous administration... Someone must have talked some sense into Obama... I will bet you he still secretly wants to find a way to "politicize" this issue and pictures.

I think it is about time for our president to go on another world tour and apologize to the world for the transgressions and injustices committed by all Americans.

The actions of a few are the fault of an entire nation, if you are an American you are guilty!

Wake up!

Take the blinders off for a while.

No where did I say I was a hero, I am however a barbarian, I will not argue that with you. You should really pay attention to the places where you get your information from, the Iraqi government recently stated that there have been 87thousand plus, so lets high ball the estimate to 150 thousand from 2003 to present.
6 years 150,000 have died that is a sad number. But not all of those deaths were by the barrel of a US Gun, the lefts beloved terrorist are responsible for some of these as well. US troop’s don’t blow themselves up in Car bombs.


So again check your facts and dont use far left bomb throwing sites. Its the same as those pictures you posted a lie.

As an after thought after re reading your post, have you stopped to think that maybe you and the far left people in this country do not look smart to the rest of the world? Oh I am sure the terrorist love you guys, you make it so much easier on them then now know what interrogation tactics to train for, I guarantee that you liberals will be the ones screaming when another terrorist attack hits our soil, but you shouldn’t blame any one but yourselves.


Hey mate!

I'm not an American citizen and I don't even live in the U.S even if I love the country - at least I use to do this before this unfortunately events of 9/11 and the aftermaths that turned all of the American people, family & friends into brainwashed robots.

I don't even know if I would call me liberal or similar because I have always known since my childhood that these questions were unintellectual questions for me and my family!

Listen! I don't want to fight you and I'm sure you are a nice guy!

If we weren't here fighting with words, we would probably find our company nice enough to drink some pints together and sharing old soldier stories together!


I know what I know! - and I'm not sure yet If want to share anymore of it here!

Please take good care of you, and please don't let their 'divide et impera! tactics get in front of the truth! - please!
