Let's not forget Guatanamo
I'll bet the prisoners down there have had the same type of torture inflicted on them as the prisoners in Iraq. After all the military is the military. The military is trained to kill and/or break down the enemy. Who is down there making sure those people have a torture-free environment? It's not on U.S. soil.

This type of torture has been going on for years, we just haven't heard about it.

1. I don't think we've forgotten, but we have to make hay where the sun
is shining. Right now, it's shining uncomfortably bright on Iraq. Hopefully when it begins to set there, it will reveal some of the other Bush atrocities.

The whole Afghanistan side of things has been forgotten. We did much the same thing to them that we did to Iraq-- blowing up the whole country to get two people (whom we haven't gotten, and who did do something to us). We or our allies created the mass graves there, with the thousands of prisoners suffocated or shot in the containers, and with the confirmed homicides of interogated prisoners. But people have given Bush a pass on them. I'm hoping that if Iraq continues to blow up, if Bush can't duck the claim that this is a systemic problem, that the investigation spills over into Afghanistan, and Gauntanamo, where many of the Afghani prisoners were sent.
