Many thanks, sir - this one died game, I'll give 'im that.
Am in before the ZOT?
I think he was trying to find "moveon.org" and made a left turn instead of a right turn. It looks like he's been dealt with accordingly.
When the pimps of the election industry start to pursue the rape charges against Bill Clintooooooon, then call back!
"Put some ice on it"
OK lets release the "photos" but lets balance them against the things the terrorists have done.
Let's release them balanced against stories of Iraqi children blown up because an American soldier was giving them candy.
Let's release them balanced against video of Nick Berg getting his head sawed off.
Let's release them balanced against stories of torture chambers we found in Falllujah.
Let's release them balanced against stories of Iraqi citizens having thier intestines ripped out by Michael Moores "freedom fighters and Patriots".
So, you signed on and took a dump on a Saturday evening. What's wrong, scared to spew during the week when EVERYONE would notice?
It's disgusting that the terrorists in Iraq and our own Liberals share such common goals. Both groups are filth.
War is Heck you panty wastes
I agree that releasing the videos would be a mistake. But I'm not sure the public (in general) was given an accurate description of what those photos contained. Maybe the article is exaggeraing the facts or outright lying...I don't know.
All I've seen are photos of Iraqi men with panties on their head and a quote from Donald Rumsfeld stating that the other photos are sadistic and inhumane.
THIS is the first I've heard and damn it...I'm gonna be angry for at least a few minutes. I'll blame it on the fact that the presidential campaign was in high gear (last year) and I didn't do any more research on this story than what I was spoon-fed from the media.
I'll get over my shock in a few minutes but I'm very disappointed.
It's already been fixed. Those responsible have and are being prosecuted and punished. This is only an attempt to hurt the war effort and the administration again. It worked well for the left, msm and the enemy the first time around and now they can get more traction out of it. This is nothing about justice for pows. If they were interested in that where is the outcry for our civilian hostages who were beheaded or our military who were murdered? The gang rape of Jessica Lynch?
The answer is pretty obvious -- don't release them. How many deaths are you willing to contenance just to satisfy your prurient interest in viewing the photos and videos?
I wonder if they get extra points over on DU for a personal JimRob zotting...
We know what is in them. Those responsible have been or are in the process of being prosecuted. Who's hiding in the sand?

More than anything else, this is supporting the enemy, generating resistance to our own military, both here, and by the enemy.
Back during WWII, Tokyo Rose was seen as a traitor. It seems that she's now the model for most of the MSM.
If the pictures prove true, we should ensure full prosecution.
Releasing the pictures, though, would be counterproductive. I think the photos could remain classified evidence.
Convict (if necessary), and classify. No need to hand the bad guys propoganda just because we've got a few bad eggs we will control.
They considier their murderers martyrs. We consider our murderers prisoners.
