Iraqi Prisoner Abuse (Again?!!)

Defense Intelligence Agency personnel who witnessed the abuse and torture of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. forces were threatened and warned to keep their mouths shut. The American forces even monitored the e-mails of defense personnel to make sure they weren't reporting what they saw. Other DIA personnel had photographs confiscated, and some were forbidden to leave the compound for any reason without written permission. And of course now we know that the FBI was reporting torture of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay as far back as 2002, more than a year before the Abu Ghraib scandal broke.

Every new report seems to show the abuses starting earlier and earlier, and the complicity going higher and higher up the chain of command. Aside from turning the United States into just another Third World country, the use of torture on prisoners doesn't even produce any reliable information, according to the FBI.

Perhaps this is the kind of high moral standards the Christian Right had in mind when they swept Bush back into the White House.

So true. Nothing but bad news for all these "moral majority" types who decided that the "Christian" president was for them (again). What's Christian about anything Bush is doing? Nothing, as far as I understand the word.
