More Respectful Treatment of Prisoners

The Red Cross has confirmed the retracted Newsweek report alleging desecration of the Koran in Guantanamo Bay.

The New York Times reports leaked details from an Army investigation of a detention center in Bagram, Afghanistan. The report describes beatings, deprivation of sleep and water, inmates being chained to the ceiling and dying in captivity. The clincher is “many of the Bagram interrogators, led by the same operations officer, Capt. Carolyn A. Wood, were redeployed to Iraq and in July 2003 took charge of interrogations at the Abu Ghraib prison.”

Finally, a British tabloid has obtained these photos of Saddam Hussein. No word yet whether the Army plans to produce these as pinup shots to raise money for military spending. Next up: Kim Jong Il in a speedo.
