The Overall Frivolity and Fun of MMM of M will be interrupted by…

This.

Hey, it can’t be dancing with cheeseburgers all the time, you know. There’s a whole world of bad out there.

I stopped looking after the sixth picture, honestly. I am utterly speechless. Well…not utterly, exactly.

“The Pentagon initially argued in federal court that release of more Abu Ghraib images would violate the privacy rights of the Iraqi prisoners.”

You have got to be kidding me. Seriously. I want to know who’s buying that load of crap. Does anyone actually believe that The Pentagon is at all concerned with violating Iraqi prisoners’ right to privacy? They are too busy attempting to cover up the fact that these people’s privates are getting violated with large objects on a daily basis. By our own soldiers.

“Later, government lawyers argued that public release of the records might “endanger” soldiers in Iraq because publication of the pictures could incite further violence.”

Ummm. Gee, you think??? Yes, it will–but guess what? That’s no argument. Newspaper cartoons have nothing on this. Nothing.

I’m not sure why I was so naiive as to think that there weren’t more pictures.

I feel so completely unclean.

    This is why writing to your government officials is important. Let them know you exist and you feel disgusted. Use Project Vote Smart. The next person you run into, you can tell them, yes I’m against torture and I wrote my government. I’ll tell you how. The government will put the fear of God in you, tell you there’s dirty bombs, sleeper cells and missing nukes. Let them know you won’t stand for it.

    Man.

    It’s a good thing I’m not a superhero.

    I suspect that I would be in a lot of people’s bad books for what I would do after looking at those images.

    That’s inexcusable.

    The world is a dark place.
    I’m glad peeps like you are in it to make it a bit brighter, Missb.
