Since the media is concentrating on 6 month old photos from Abu Ghraib jail, showing psychological torture, it's only right to show some photos taken at the same or similar places, slightly earlier. Photos courtesy of the resistance group, Free Iraq.
Warning, these photos are gruesome.
Here is one victim.
And another, slightly more recogniseable.
Here is one survivor.
Questions have been asked as to how did the guards get a (dog)leash or a hood?
Well, here is some of the equipment that was used until relatively recently.
In case it's not blindingly obvious, these are the results of Saddam's regime. These images are all over a year old, because that's when this horror was stopped. Not by 'investigative journalists'. By the US military. But you won't read about that in the papers.
If anyone thinks the shameful acts of some US MPs are just a case of 'same business under new management', then may I suggest they get a prosthetic sense of proportion, as they obviously don't have one.
Those barbarities were also put an end to, by the same people. Not by 'investigative journalists'. By the US military. But you won't read about that in the papers, either.
