If you were around here when the New York times didn't let a day go by without some kind of article or picture being published then you'd get what Icy's referring to. Several posters here were certain it all could be traced straight to the top(Bush) and if it couldn't it was the Bush attitude that gave soldiers license for the atrocities. Maybe everyone is becoming immune to this kind of stuff now but the silence now is remarkable.
So were they civilians or not? The Guardian is quick to jump to that conclusion (unsurprisingly), but are we sure? The trophy thing is ridiculous and the PL should have taken charge there. Deplorable? Yes. Abu Ghraib, it is not.
We get what we deserve.
------------------ “On a day when they could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson..they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon.”
Chico...don't try to turn this around. The FACT is, it's just more of the same old crap with a different guy as POTUS. The issue here is whether or not the media will cover it in the same manner as Abu ghraib. The issue isn't political as much as a media issue.
Personally, I think this is worse than Abu ghraib. How can humans be like that?
Will you be upset if mainstream media doesn't cover it the same way?

Don't sweat it folks. Everyone calm down. Now that the "One" is in charge, this will mearly be the sadistic acts of individuals that were "let in" to the Army under the last administration. It certainly is not nearly on the same level as Abu Ghraib, which we all know was specifically cooked up by Dearth Cheney and approved by BushHilter.
As for me............ Unlike my esteemed friends on the left, will presume that the soldiers are innocent until they have gone through thier due process and have been proven guilty.
On second thought. It might be fun to join a big circle jerk calling for them to all be crucified on the cross, only to have all the charges dismissed in 6 months (Haditha, anyone??).
I'm quite sure this will not be a big deal for the media with Obama in the WH and not Bush.
