I heard about that a few days ago. Anyone else not surprised the mainstream media has not said a word about this?

Why does this suprise us? So since the enemy tortures, we should?

We shouldn't hold ourselves to a higher standard? We need to lower ourselves to the level of the monster?

The more information I get about torture, the happier I am that I don't support it.

That made me feel physically ill. I just can't comprehend how people can be so cruel.

So they'll publish these photos, but not the ones that implicate themselves in Iraq...

First,

I think Al Qaeda is capable of that and much worse


But, I think is is ridiculous to think they would create documents and drawings/
or even need a drawing of putting a electric drill into a hand


some of you may remember when this whole thing began

Rumsfeld said he/they would create propaganda/ false documents/ fake reports as a tactic to fight terror

there was a big storm about it
comparing it to Hitler's minister of information creating propaganda

well, Rummy kind of back peddled

So, I am very skeptical

Who created these documents?

What purpose do they serve?

google.com


go back and see what Rummy said











until they see this drawing
they don't know how to use a drill?

did you need a pamphlet with drawings
to learn how to whack yourself?

I think you're projecting and speculating.

I agree, and was going to say something similar to the "Anyone else not surprised the mainstream media has not said a word about this?"

Smoking Gun isn't well known for it's fact checking in fact it's been embarassed quite a few times, just this year. The fact that people still rely on it, suprises me.

But it does smell kinda funny.

Well given the great ammount of media attention paid to the documentation of Baathist brutality (e.g. the amputation videos and mass graves) I don't see why this is newsworthy (hell look at the actions of CNN in the 1990's and the blind spots that it had to maintain as a matter of policy - admitted to by Eason Jordan).

So is this supposed to make us feel better because our torture doesn't go as far as theirs?

"Look everyone! See, we're not as bad as they are!"
