Ohio Rep. Bob Ney prisoner abuse "fraternity prank"
http://www.theintelligencer.net/community/story/0515202...

I am normally not one that believes in conspiracies, but this Berg murder just seems to be too convenient. It's strange how the Berg
beheading happened just in time for jackasses like Ney to make these comparisons.

1. He is not the only one. Besides inhofe, I have read of at least
2 others here in DU. I think it is the talking points. I wonder what they are going to say when Hersh's article starts getting the spotlight.

2. OK thats like the 4th or 5th one
that keeps spewing the same line. Obviously all their fax machines are in working order and ed Gillespie's minions must be exhausted.

3. This "frat prank" is getting a bit tiring...
I am sick and tired of all these dopes reading from q-cards passed down to them by the walrus himself Karl Rove.

6. Yes, beating someone to death is a Frat prank.
I'd to see how the rest of Planet Earth feels about these comments.

4. Fraternity people should be outraged
Aren't they the ones who always complain about being "stereotyped" by liberals and the mean university administrators? Well Ney's comments only strengthen that stereotype. Fraternity organizations should speak out agianst this practice and remind people that their organizations do not do this kind of crap.

5. He calls them "Iraqi terrorists"
Edited on Sat May-15-04 06:46 PM by Eric J in MN
Zarqawi is Jordanian.

If someone from another country commits a crime in your country, that makes it ok for another country occupying yours to humiliate prisoners?


Does Rep. Ney think the US hasn't killed anyone in Iraq?

9. Zarqawi
Zarqawi is Bushco's new Osoma. The more I read about Berg's
execution, the more I feel that it could be a set up by
mercs and that Berg was dead when decapitated.
The list of inconsistencies is getting larger.

19. Nah, the "goo" is held in place
by 3 layers of tissue, the dura mater, the pia mater, and the aracnoid membrane.

However, breaching the carotids does result in a hard spray of blood, as they're small vessels and very close to the heart. The blood is under tremendous pressure.

The whole area would have been soaked.

15. The news media like Faux and CNN have morphed
the war in Iraq into the War on Terror. The Repugs think all the terrorists have been attracted to Iraq like flies to fight us, in otherwords we are fighting them there instead of here. I have heard this a hundred times from Repugs "I would rather fight them over there instead of here." Of course when it came their turn to do the fighting they had other priorities.

8. These people promoting the Frat Prank POV

must have belonged to some strange Fraternities.

Kappa Sado Maso ?

or is this one of those SKull and Bones-style Pranks ?

11. Why doesn't he mention that Bush had several chances of getting
Al Zarqawi (sp) before and he didn't do it so that he could have some AlQaida traces in Iraq, even though this guy was AGAINST Saddam and residing in the Kurdish area? If Al Zarqawi (sp) was the one that did this, anyway. And this guy is not even Iraqi. AlQaida really started working in all of Iraq (suppossedly, who believes this misadministration any more) after our friendly, compassionate, Christlike, occupation.

18. We don't condone such abuse! We must stop it now!
Tell Inhofe and Ney the broomsticks and hoods will be removed in six months or so. A proper investigation must go through channels...there's a procedure...there are protocols to be followed. Bush says so. Rummy says so. Myers says so.
You can't just take the broomstick out now and ask questions later.
I'm sure they'll understand why these things take so long to remedy if you explain that it's a policy thang!
