1. I have been bitching all day.
Because from what I gather, this is a systemic problem. It is not just one prison and it is not just 6 soldiers.

I hope this comes back to haunt them. God, I hope this lie comes back to haunt them.

3. Bullshit
It's the nature of the beast, as it stands. We need to overhaul the system so that normal people don't become monsters, and Iraqis aren't tortured.

4. and how do they know that?
They always seem to know who the insurgents are, even though they can't find them. They always seem to know everything about everything, yet they're consistently wrong.

By the way, just what is the threshold of dispicableness?

6. unfortunately, general Tabuga's (sp) report is ON THE WEB. And
it says something different. So how are they going to hide this?

5. if it is only 6 soldiers why are there at least 20 investigations?
truley a systemic problem, one person was in charge of the 12 prisons.

10. Complete and utter bullshit

They are praying that it is just six demented sick fuckers but they
are shit out of luck because it's starting to look like from all accounts that it's more like Standard Operating Procedure.

What is wrong with America is it under some kind of mass Psychosis.

This is beyond belief...

They need their illusion of only 6 bad apples it stops the cognitive dissonance from eating a hole in their collective brain.

11. Yes. The "Rotten Apple" excuse.
DUers debunked it within hours of this story breaking; Seymour Hersch's New Yorker piece showed the way. I'm pretty proud of us for that, especially since it took the press a few more days to figure out that angle. :D

12. bush said "Secretary Rumsfeld has served his country
well" - so had the soldiers in the pictures until now - why should Rumsfeld be treated any differently. Only thing is - I want bush to resign.

13. How They Spin It...
Edited on Thu May-06-04 07:58 PM by Unperson 309
Repspeak:
"Well, yeah, the report says 'something like 600 involved', but what is a zero? Nothing, right? So a zero plus a zero plus a six is... SIX! See... only six people involved! You just have to do the math!"

Pardon me while I barf on *'s shoes!
Rush is high on Math-Amphetamines...
