Salon has published the latest photos aired by Australian television showing more graphic images of our treatment of detainees in Iraq by our military. (Click here to view images ). Some of the photographs were withheld by the station, being considered too extreme for public viewing.
A Pentagon spokesman, Bryan Whitman, said the release of the images “could only further inflame and possibly incite unnecessary violence in the world and would endanger our military men and women that are serving in places around the world.”
No shit, Dick Tracy! Wouldn't it have been nice if the Pentagon and Bush had thought about that before all the torture and humiliation they inflicted on the Iraqi prisoners? If they were so concerned for the safety of our soldiers, seems like they would have thought of that beforehand.
