1. I saw it. Thongs and miniskirts were mentioned as well.
Yeah sure. Those were rogue soldiers acting on their own accord in Iraq.

Hang the poor slob soldiers out to dry- brought to you by the "support the troops crowd".

6. They shoud be called the "EXPORT the troops" crowd
They don't give a damn about the US soldiers. They just want to sit on their fat asses and watch TV while US soldiers die in Iraq and Iran for the Bush/Cheney crusades.

2. I haven't seen it, but I heard about it last year.
Of course it was denied. They always deny until there is proof.

4. Tell Rush to crank up the spin machine....He'll probably try to claim
...envy for the detainees:

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/english/doc/2005-01/28/con...

One female civilian contractor used a special outfit that included a miniskirt, thong underwear and a bra during late-night interrogations with prisoners, mostly Muslim men who consider it taboo to have close contact with women who aren't their wives.

Beginning in April 2003, "there hung a short skirt and thong underwear on the hook on the back of the door" of one interrogation team's office, he writes. "Later I learned that this outfit was used for interrogations by one of the female civilian contractors ... on a team which conducted interrogations in the middle of the night on Saudi men who were refusing to talk."

<snip>
In one incident, dated June 19, 2004, "The detainee appears to be genuinely traumatized by a female escort securing the detainee's leg irons," according to the document, a U.S. Southern Command summary of videotapes shot when the teams were used.

10. Rush Will Just Say That
This proves that woman have equality now.

I can hear it now: "It's a good thing that they can be as dehumanizing as men". "Folks, this is what the Feminazis have hoped for all along." "We ought to welcome this as a sign that the glass ceiling has been broken" <sarcasm off>

Anyone want to bet against my prediction?????

17. Good call... I think you may as well send your post to Rush, and save him
some time.

Nice avatar, btw...
Good to see after last week's black and gold fashion show here in NE Ohio. hahaha

5. Boy, wasn't it good luck this didn't get released four months ago!
Might have taken MSNBC's attention away from the Swift Boat Liars, and that could have affected the outcome of the election (in a negative way for the Chimperor, which is verboten), and might have turned some people off of what's being done in their name and with their tax dollars by this corrupt administration.

But now that the Eagle is Sore again, we can come out with some of this bad news. It certainly can't hurt the Bushistas now.

MY HELL IN CAMP X-RAY

Mar 12 2004

WORLD EXCLUSIVE

By Rosa Prince and Gary Jones

A BRITISH captive freed from Guantanamo Bay today tells the world of its full horror - and reveals how prostitutes were taken into the camp to degrade Muslim inmates.

...

But Jamal's most shocking disclosure centred on the use of vice girls to torment the most religiously devout detainees.

Prisoners who had never seen an "unveiled" woman before would be forced to watch as the hookers touched their own naked bodies.

The men would return distraught. One said an American girl had smeared menstrual blood across his face in an act of humiliation.

Jamal said: "I knew of this happening about 10 times. It always seemed to be those who were very young or known to be particularly religious who would be taken away.

16. Well, I'm sure MSNBC would have gotten right on this
If it had been more newsworthy than, say, the Dean Scream or the Swift Boat Liars.

9. Is Mel Gibson Directing It?
I mean this guy, everything from Braveheart to Lethal Weapon, to Payback, to the Passion has some kind of torture in it.

I'm surprised he doesn't have a job in this admin yet.

12. Ironic comment since Christs "blood of life/ blood of the lamb" meme
was stolen from paganism in which case the blood in question WAS menstrual blood.

11. Not exactly the "be all that you can be" campaign I expected from...
...female soldiers. :grr:

It's a morbid social experiment isn't it? Forcing the unhealthy, neurotic, "in-your-face" sexuality of America on the unhealthy, neurotic, "shun the female body" sexuality of people in Saudi Arabia. Odd.

14. Good lord, I hope this isn't true.
If it is true, however, I hope the video gets out. What kind of animals have we (collectivly) become in our fervor to "git the terra-ists"?

This kind of shit is what makes me want to run outside and scream "WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE START PAYING ATTENTION?!?!"
