If what I saw tonight is real, no wonder they won't release more pictures
Edited on Sat May-15-04 06:08 AM by TheWatcher
I'm not sure whether I should post about this or not, but I am going to anyway.

I did a P2P search tonight to see if I could find anymore of the "newer" pictures that haven't been released yet, and I did manage to find some I had not seen yet. I guess after the past couple of weeks most have seen enough, but I am so sick of these bastards always trying to hide everything from the light that I decided to see what they were trying to hide this time.

Admittedly I now wish I hadn't.

What I came up with were six very graphic pictures that involve the raping of two Iraqi women, along with some other really horrific images.

If these are the real deal, then all I can do is weep for what is left of my country.

Dear GOD what have we done.

Will is right. The War Is Lost.

We don't deserve to "win."

We should have never been there in the first place.

There is nothing to be won.

1. There is some controversy about those rape photos.
They were supposedly taken from a porn site called "Iraqi Babes."

2. It would not surpise me.
This WAS P2P so you never really know.

But we do know from reports without seeing the pictures that this kind of activity did go on anyway.

Who knows what kind of Hell is bubbling over there.

3. I still think they should release the pictures to a web site.
Anyone who doesn't want to look doesn't have to, but it despells the "what are they hiding" story.

The stories of the raping pictures has been out since the Senate hearings when Lindsey Graham (I think) mentioned them.

4. The pictures must be released
We can only hope that some Pentagon staffer finds a way to leak the photos to the media.

7. I Agree.
We deserve to not only know but SEE the truth about what has happening over there, and it needs to be brought to light.

It is time for the country to face itself in the mirror, even if they do not like what they see. And if it is anything like what I saw tonight, then they will more than likely turn away in horror.

But it does not matter.

It all must come out.

5. Probably weren't
If they're being passed around P2P, they'd be all over the web as well. You've likely got the same batch of fetish porn that snookered the Boston Globe.

6. the pics will come out they say, delayed or not
and yes, there is a phony gangrape video that instantly showed up along with the real atrocities, and many are confusing the two seperate films. some folks like simulated rape fantasies i guess, to each his own. plus, the real pics were published on a u.s. porn site before cbs even had them.

crazy. but, you may have seen something that we haven't yet. and i understand that there are real photos that actually do portray what you've desribed, and worse.

and you're right again, if this is how debased we've become, we don't deserve to be called a democratic nation anymore

8. The pictures you saw were staged porn
they were debunked here 2 weeks ago. they are very graphic,yes.

But for the umpteenth time, they have nothing to do with the torture and abuses in the Iraqi prison. People are using them to inflame the situation.

Even the Baltimore Sun got fooled, printed one and had to print a retraction.

Note, usually someone posts the pictures after someone brings up the topic. The Mods will delete your post if you do, that has been the trend. they have been viewed, discussed,disgusted, and debunked.
