And the media gleefully writes the headline:
FORT HOOD, Texas (Reuters) – A former inmate at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison forced by U.S. guards to masturbate in public and piled onto a pyramid of naked men said on Tuesday even Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein did not do such things.
Note to Lynndie, next time cut out their tongues and let them bleed to death. Apparently they would prefer it. And who is this guy the media holds up as knowing so much about life in Iraq under Saddam?
In earlier video testimony on Tuesday, Ameen Al-Sheikh, a Syrian who said he went to Iraq to oppose the U.S. occupation, declared,” Graner was the primary torturer.”
Al-Sheikh, well known in Abu Ghraib for having once obtained a gun from an Iraqi guard and exchanged fire with American soldiers, appeared wary in his testimony.
Graner said outside court of the man, “The last time I saw him he was threatening to kill me.”
Could that have been because you tried to kill him you idiot? And the media tries to make this guy a victim!
So now Reuters is quoting Syrians about how life was in Iraq under Saddam. Geeze! It is stories like his that make be want to vote for George Bush again and again and again. Not because I like him, but because it will piss the right people off.
