Ummmm ... you hop on the right and you have all the left talking points at the tips of your fingers.
You didn't answer the question.
Typical blind partisan...
(edit: you also didn't address my first comment
Try taking off the blinders -- are the folks who defended Bush going to defend Obama, too?)

"don't try to turn this around"? Sorry, Icy is pretending that hypocrisy only comes in one flavor. Not sure why you think it's off-limits to call that crap out.
If you want to have a serious conversation about this, let's -- but Icy didn't start this thread off in that direction, and he's the one who started the thread.
So let's ignore Icy's partisanship and talk about the photos themselves -- we can pretend you started the thread. When you say this, are you talking about the civilians being killed or the photos?
If the former, I think it is much worse than Abu Ghraib. If the latter, I don't think it is, because as repugnant as it is, it wasn't affecting live people. In both cases you have extremely poor judgment. (I'd say it's incredible or disturbing, but realistically, I expect it in a war.)
I would hope the media would cover it just as Abu Ghraib was (unless facts come out that warrant more or less attention, obviously).
I agree with your comments above Chico.

Keep patting yourself on the back for what a patriot you are. I bet you even have a plastic flag flying on your car (made in china, of course) and everything.
Translation = I got nothing.
WTF does "Patriot" have to do with anything in my post? It doesn't. My post was in direct reference to Haditha, where the left went absolutly looney, including all the moonbats in here, and would have executed 6-8 guys for killing "innocent" civilians. The media jumped on board and everyone had a circle jerk with it for about 4 months.
When the actual truth came out, there was nothing criminally wrong and all the charges were dropped. That part of the story barely got covered.
We have NO IDEA what we have here. It could range from a realative mild posing with legitimate war dead (extremely poor judgement) to out and out murder. Unlike you lefties, I'll choose not to make judgements once the FACTS make the light of day, and not try to score politicla points on it.
It has nothing to do with patriotism or little plastic flags.

It has everything to do with your claim about the left and US troops.
The right's repeated attempts to cloak themselves in patriotism would be comical if it weren't sad.
No, I didn't say anything about patriotism, you made that part up. I will grant you that it did have to do with the left and US Troops. In this instance, the media left..... I've still not seen this story materialize in the main stream press.
Are you going to deny that the left did not overdo AbuGhraib and Haditha

Again, are you saying liberal didn't try to use both AbuGhraib and Haditha to score political point? That's actually a serious question, BTW

When it comes to if 9 soildiers are guilty of premeditated murber based on 2 photographs that show them posing with a dead person..... Yeah, I'm probably not gonna make presumptions of guilt on it. You ought to try it some time.
Theres a difference Abu ghraib was systematic, from Rummy on down. (I don't think W had anything to do with it" In this case its a couple of 'Cowboys' out on their own, i know that that won't stop some people from pointing and saying O'bama condones it too.
