Tortured to Death in Abu Ghraib

America doesn't torture. Of course it doesn't. But, when it does, it goes to crazy lengths to conceal it.

If you've got a strong stomach, I urge you to check out Errol Morris' piece, "The Most Curious Thing," published in today's New York Times:

Copied below is the second response to the article. Mesmorizing in it's ignorance, it speaks volumes about the "real America", the value of, 'preaching to the converted' and the willingness of thoughtless sheep to put all trust in a small group of pathological, lying monsters.
Perhaps the day will come when sole discretion over foreign relations is removed from Presidents.

1:09 am I have little sympathy for the people you devoted a massive amount of copy and photos towards. America walked into a den of people far below rats, snakes and even cancer–people who not only place no value on the lives of others–women, children, the elderly, people standing on lines for jobs, people at prayer in mosques, the people who financed the suicide bombers from Gaza and the West Bank with $25,000 stipends to the families of the terror bombers; the people who kidnapped young girls off the streets of Baghdad and raped them.

Instead of focusing on the negative, we should be focusing on making things better and figuring out we can leave this cesspool as soon as possible without turning Iraq into a supercenter of terror and the killing fields of a genocide between Sunnis and Shiites.

I am far more concerned about mushroom clouds over US cities by way of Iran or its terror surrogates than how a few terror suspects were humiliated, caused pain and suffering by some overzealous people trying to stop the next suicide bombing or murder of our people by these monsters.

Yeah I read that comment, Foot, and was just as disgusted as you are. You have to read all the other comments, however, to see that the pendulum is swinging back. Three or four years ago this sort of outrageous trip was much more common, virulent even. Gradually it's becoming the preserve of a demented, angry few. Fortunately they're inevitably the type who rave insanely but rarely do anything about it.

Yes...a good read from my relative. Now you know MOS my name...I shall use it from now on so you know who is making comments. Cheers, A. Morris
