39. Abu Ghraid ???
As far as I know, Abu Ghraib was not STATE sponsored torture, murder and mayhem. It appears to be individual acts of mistreatment of prisoners, something that will unfortunately always happen during a war. To believe anything else about our soldiers is a direct insult to the integrity, spirit, and honor of the 99.99% of our sons & daughters fighting there.

In my book anyway.
