On a side note, seeing photos of our own armed forces ridiculing/humiliating POWs doesn't sit well with me, either - although the beheading goes beyond that, of course. If we're going to be outraged by the former, we need to conduct ourselves appropriately and cut out the latter. I especially can't stand photos of that female US soldier with the POWs ... she needs to be kicked out of the military and sent back to her trailer home.
Sorry for the vent session - LONG day here and it's only 9:00 am.
I agree with ya Reef....but ya know, this is war...and I am sure this isn't the first time things like what we saw in those pictures of American soldiers has happened...when 9-11 happened, most of us would have condoned anything in order to get information from prisoners. And ya know, I don't think I've changed my mind much since then.
My issue is with 60 Minutes...this IS A WAR...they are Americans first, media people second...they should have held on to those pics and not published them...the media is disgusting...
While I am sure these animals would have beheaded Mr Berg in any case, that they blamed it on the pics of Iraqi prisoners, should make the media hang their heads in shame.
