Inmate Says Graner Laughed During Abuse
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A Syrian insurgent held at Abu Ghraib prison testified by video Tuesday that Army Spc. Charles Graner merrily whistled, sang and laughed while brutalizing him and forced him to eat pork and drink alcohol in violation of his Muslim faith.

An Iraqi detainee later told the court that he was among a group of prisoners stripped by Graner and other Abu Ghraib guards, stacked up naked in a human pyramid while female soldiers watched, and later told to masturbate.

``I couldn't imagine it in the beginning,'' Hussein Mutar, the Iraqi, said when asked how he felt during the alleged mistreatment. ``I could kill myself because no one over there was stopping it from happening.''

(snip)

The inmate also said he listened through his cell wall as Graner and other Americans forced a Yemeni prisoner to eat from a toilet.

Asked if Graner appeared to enjoy hurting him, al-Sheikh said through an interpreter: ``He laughed. He was whistling. He was singing.''

1. Why don't we just turn him over to a fundie Muslim country for trial?
And then dump his ass in a prison in say Saudi Arabia or Iran.

I mean the prisoners over there do need to "let off steam" every now and then.

2. Saw that guy making comments about his trial on ABC News, he was
very flippant about the whole thing, I hope to see that shit-eating grin wiped off his face with the maximum 17 years.

5. Well --

Considering that the "trooper" who forced that Iraqi to jump off a bridge and drown got six months, I figure Graner's probably going to get thirty days, max. If they don't look at the whole thing as some sort of frat prank, that is.

Then he'll be sprung to spend the rest of his life with Trash Bag Lynndie and their lil' Spawn of Satan.

3. I hope Graner ends up doing time in the prison where he was a guard
just desserts.

6. Sadistic bastard. Nobody in his right mind would enjoy inflicting
that sort of abuse on another human being.
