Something is fishy about Iraqi scandal

"I smell a big rat and it really stinks. The so-called Iraq prisoner scandal would not have existed if it weren't for the pictures, taken on digital cameras, of the various perpetrators posing in what could be interpreted as "abuser" positions with their various presumably unwilling victims. Strange that the taking of photographs in the Abu Ghraib prison was strictly prohibited.

Further, if you were a G. I. who could get years in the stockade for certain activity, would you document that activity by photograph? Yet these seven perpetrators and presumably their operational commander not only carried out the abuse but posed for the pictures during it.

On the other hand, if you were offered $1 million to be paid secretly after your sentence was served by someone who wanted to embarrass the Bush/U.S. defense establishment, maybe you would consider it. It is well known that billionaire George Soros has pledged and spent billions to get rid of Bush using whatever tactics will work. Isn't it possible that he or someone of his ilk has done precisely this by offering these seven or eight low-ranking soldiers the chance to get rich by creating a scandal?"

Let the spin begin. I guess he believes everyone has his/her price.
After all, king george can do no wrong.
