Updated: 10:46 p.m. ET April 28, 2004NEW YORK - U.S. military police stacked naked Iraqi prisoners in a human pyramid, and attached wires to one detainee to convince him he might be electrocuted, according to photographs obtained by CBS News which led to criminal charges against six American soldiers.

The Army is already taking action against the soldiers who participated in this conduct.

I'm glad they are stepping up and doing that.

I watched 60 Minute II last night.

It was pretty disgusting, men and women soldiers were participating in the abuse.

It makes it more difficult to demand fair treatment of our prisoners.

This hapens more often than you think in almost all troops.
You can read about these incidents in the ai-journals. (For example even canadian UN- roops tortured people to death)

It makes me wish I was still in the service, these are the kind of soldiers that make me sick.

Did this happen before or after the war started to go so badly? If after, maybe those soldiers were pissed off that they faced another summer in the hellish heat instead of getting to go home as promised. Of course, nothing excuses such behavior, that's ostensibly why we're there in the first place.

I suspect the fallout from these images (particularly the British one above) will be quite significant.
