Anyone else been reading about this ??.

I am not saying nasty things were not done at Abu Ghraib , they were. But the NYT , just taking anything they can possibly print negative sucks.

Some other articles I read have talked about how the photo was even doctored to make the mans hand look right ... I am wondering if the Fuc**** pic is real at all.

Again , I know their was bad things done their .... but I am sick of the press using anything to make us look bad.

As far as I've read the article, there is no doubt about the photo being genuine, only about the obviously difficult identification of the victim.

And it seems your only problem is with torture and abuse being made public, not with the torture itself. Which is quite a significant distinction.

Seems like it to me, as he feels sick of seeing the press spotlight the things that make America look shameful

Not true Klaus , I did not say the event did not happen , I also never said that the people responsible shouldn't get hanged.

Basically their is enough bad crap to write about ,, the NYT "found" this guy and printed his story about an event that was long past , and covered completely. It has the appearance to me that they just were breathing life back into a old story.
thats all, Now why would they want to do that , ? And do it without checking the guys story , and even making sure the pics were not valid...

Who knows ,
