Somehow making prisoners pose naked, humiliating them, depriving them of sleep, keeping them cold, spraying them with cold water, and all the other
things our troops did and I might add, did under orders is nothing compared with what Saddam did daily.
The heated charge that prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib by U.S. service personnel was somehow equivalent to that perpetrated by Saddam Hussein – a notion
pervasive in the Muslim world and epitomized in the West by Sen. Edward Kennedy's remark that "we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened
