Teachers get good at recognizing, knowing people, if they are doing it right. We all fit into some sort of type or personality. I bet a good second grader teacher can spot the culprits of any prank easily.
And so can most of us.
Roundabout way of saying, “What the hell is going on?” Are we actually having a debate about torture? Not a great sign as to how well we are doing, would you say? I keep thinking of all the civilizations that have preceded ours and feel like… shit.
Well, in a couple of hundred years, they can assess how we did confronting the problems that brought so many other cultures down.
And the characters seem as transparent and obvious as those pesky second graders. The banksters, politicians, media, the left and the right are all acting like caricatures. Cheney? Newt Gingrich lecturing the nation about truth and virtue? And the media finds them credible and serious? Please.
From the London Telegraph (full story)
At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee.Just to be clear THIS is what the torture advocates and apologists are defending. I have seen the rape and abuse photos. They are beyond the pale. This was done in our name.
Further photographs are said to depict sexual assaults on prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube.
There is no defense.
If you wish to see them hit the link. Warning! They are graphic.
These are not new photos. They have been around for years. We just didn't want to deal.
