Lakeland Web site allows soldiers to post photos of dead Iraqis
Sep 28, 2005

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- The photos, apparently taken by U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, show the bloody corpses of enemy war dead, many burned or blown apart. In one, a soldier examines the disembodied head of a suicide bomber.

Posted along with pictures of nude women on a Web site popular with U.S. servicemen, the gruesome photos - and the 27-year-old Lakeland man who runs the site - were on Wednesday at the center of a Pentagon investigation and an international controversy prompted by an Islamic civil rights group.

The pay site is operated by Chris Wilson out of his small Lakeland apartment. He started it about 18 months ago as a place where men could post nude photos of their wives and girlfriends.

For the last seven or eight months, the pay site also has become a venue for soldiers serving in the war zones to post photos depicting their daily lives, including the grisly images of corpses identified as Iraqi and Afghani insurgents.
