I agree that the ACLU and Dems have no credibility....but if Rumsfeld is disgusted by the photos/video and they are legitimate (not faked in anyway), then can we not admit this is a problem...deal with it and fix it?
It is being dealt with and fixed. This is old news. The quotes are from over a year ago. The only thing this piece is about is whether more pictures go out to the public. Nothing has been shielded from the prosecution of the Abu Ghraib goons.
Take a breath, people.
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 problem I have with all this, is that we get bits and pieces. We don't know the whole story, we just get the most sensational. We get different people providing different accounts of things that went on. Then we're supposed to know the whole story and make assessments.
Am I somewhat troubled by some of these accounts? Yes. Do I know enough to truly make an accurate assessment? No.
I don't want to become barbarian to stop barbarians. I do however recognize that our military are having to deal with an almost impossible situation, weighing their actions against the potential threat.
What would you allow if it meant stopping the deaths of 250 thousand people? That's a pretty tough question to answer. Our military is having to do that. I am not going to damn them at every opportunity, even if some abuses do occur. I expect the military to intervene when things have gone too far. It seems to me they are doing so.
I don't think Rumsfeld has given the green light to 'anything goes'.
