Video of American Military Abusing Iraqi Prisioners of War

American Troops use Saddam's tactics to torture and humiliate Iraqi's in Abu Ghraib prison...
This story comes from CBS news' 60 minutes II program aired last night and is VERY DISTURBING! It's yet another case of your tax dollars at work in the war on humanity...not to mention a violation of every international rule on the treatment of POW's.

"In some, the male prisoners are positioned to simulate sex with each other. And in most of the pictures, the Americans are laughing, posing, pointing, or giving the camera a thumbs-up."

Nobody deserves what these peictures showed us. If these men are criminals, they should be tried accordingly to THEIR laws (not American). Some Americans ask why so many people in the world hate us. I think these pictures shed some light about the subject.
