M. Moore should do a short on "Tortured Children in Iraq" for F 9-11 DVD
Hate to have to depend on Michael Moore to break this incredibly disgusting story - but if the mainstream is going to sit on it - perhaps with the intention of covering it up until after the Nov. 2 selection - then I wish we could urge and even convince Moore to put a short together exposing this outrageous war crime - and have it accompany Fahrenheit 9-11 in its DVD/video release!! What exactly is the best way to go about "floating" this idea Moore's way? With a little luck, the short could draw as much "bad" publicity as F 9-11 itself!

1. Perhaps, Greenwald, producer of OutFoxed & Uncovered
would be a better candidate for this issue. He seems to be working closely with MoveOn.

3. You may be right about that.
Either one will do.

2. Sydney Hersh has seen the pictures, but
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 03:45 PM by Cyrano
even he hasn't done a story on it. He's seen the pictures, but doesn't HAVE them. The pentagon has them and no one's going to go public until they can get their hands on them.

Let's hope there's one person with conscience, who has access to them, and has the courage to take/smuggle/steal copies of the film and get them to Cy Hersh, or someone else who will pounce on the story.

8. German newspaper did the story, but they didn't have the photos.
Norwegians picked up on it and printed it, but evidently, no American media is going to touch it until the pictures are available.

If/when this ever happens, it just might be the straw that will blast this administration out of the White House and into the international court at the Hague for crimes against humanity.

But you are correct: the report was based on interviews, not actual footage.

10. How do we get them out of the Washington Post?
There must be a way...considering the fact that it could not only save any children still imprisoned - but literally save the planet from WWIII!!!!

5. What everyone things is in them becomes pretty bad.
It makes it almost as if they must put it out to kill the INTERNET stuff. It is moving out on the net.
