Freepers response to Torture/Abuse scandal
Responding to this article:

Iraqi inmate: 'Treated like dogs'
One of the Iraqi men who says he was photographed in degrading poses by American prison guards in Abu Ghraib jail is unemployed father-of-five Haydar Sabbar Abed.

-snip-

Broken jaw

They made us act like dogs, putting leashes around our necks and making us bark. They'd whistle and we'd have to bark like dogs.

They made us stand up and then climb on top of each other, one after the other. They said they were going to kill us, but in the end they took the bags off our heads and I was surprised to see my friends around me.

They had beat me so hard that they broke my jawbone. Even now I can't eat properly.



RESPONSES:


I don't know how iraqi dogs are treated - and I have no illusions - but my dog is pampered her whole life... :o)

The fact that he is still alive and whole to tell the tale puts the lie to his tale.

Every Arab tells the truth and every American is lying according to the mouth agape American media. Sheesh! The world is upside down again.

I'm not sure I believe it either, but after decades of porno flooding America, sadly, I wouldn't be enormously surprised.

My own personal opinion here, so please take it for that.

Better that they be treated like dogs (which over there is bad) than to be treated like they treated our civilian contractors.

Nuff said!

Real story: The Iraqi pigs exposed themselves to the women guards and masturbated in front of them in hopes of ejaculating and throwing the semen on them. When the male soldiers would see them they would drag them out and humiliate (and possible slip them a boot or two) them in front of the others to let them know what would happen if the others tried it.

I was taken to court, but on 15 April I was released.
Sure it wasn't an audit by the IRS?

Hasn't anybody read the report? It is on Smoking Gun. This stuff happened, the soldiers admitted it, the inspector saw video/photos of it.

The only question is whether the soldiers were acting under the suggestions of Military Intelligence or just screwing off on their own.

I do not think that the panic that "this will cost us the war and the election" is justified, but I also think alot of people need to get past "this stuff never happened".

I suspect you're right on target, as usual.

I don't care if it happens! I'm sick of getting nose bleeds from always taking the High Road. Big damn deal! Some Arabs were treated to a little humiliation. The Truth is, it's only horrible and humiliating because Americans were involved.

Arabs have no dignity to insult. They live for this stuff. They would skin alive our people given any opportunity. I'm glad there is good evidence that the Americans can give as well as receive. Let the others beware!

1. I like what Rush said...
It was like a fraternity prank.

"They were just letting off some steam", if I remember correctly, is what Oxyrush said.

Lets see. If I go and stick a broomstick up Rush's ass, and then rape his wife, would he consider it "just blowing off some steam?" Ridiculous.

And, I dont know what kind of frat rushboy was in, but in mine, we used to pride ourselves on NOT sticking things up each other's asses and raping people.
