'I pray, cry and curse the US'


04/05/2004 14:20 - (SA)

Abu Ghraib, Iraq - US authorities freed some 240 prisoners from the notorious Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad to waiting relatives on Tuesday, amid continuing tension over the abuse of prisoners by military guards....

Regular releases have failed to mollify those who wait outside, including some who say they have been coming every day for months without getting the chance to see their relatives....

"When prisoners were released before, they were too afraid to speak about what had happened in Abu Ghraib. Since these pictures were released, now most are speaking about their ordeals," he said. "When you see them, you just can't stop yourself from crying."

4. BBC and CBC analysts yesterday said his attitude and word choice
only made things worse. Apparently saying things like "you need to understand" to an Arab is offensive.

8. "You need to understand" is universally offensive in the way that he said
it.

or "presidential?"

6. He reminds me of Foster Brooks in that picture.
Remember him? He was the "loveable drunk" who was on the Dean Martin roasts, The Gong Show, etc. Tried to find a picture, but couldn't find one of Brooks in character.
