THIS IS NOT GOOD, NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THE ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY SADDAM

I agree with Christopher Hitchens. The torture and humiliation of Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghraib is despicable. As Hitch says:

It is as if British or American soldiers had not only executed German prisoners of war, but had force-marched them to Dachau in order to commit the atrocity.

After taking many casualties ourselves to prevent civilian casualties. After spending millions of dollars to design and perfect weapons that inflicted the minimum of collateral damage. After clothing ourselves in the uniform of a liberator, we do this?

The best thing to do now is for the military to make a very public show of prosecuting these sadistic creeps.

They have done nothing but to dishonor themselves and their fallen comrades.

And now the President has to go on Arab television to try to explain why they shouldn't hate us.
