The Report On The Abuse Of Iraqi Prisoners

Regardless of one's political beliefs or feelings about the second Iraq war, this U.S. military report on the abuse of Iraqi prisoners is a must-read.

The litany of abuse is chilling, and the perpetrators should be prosecuted vigorously. The skeptical might ask how different these abuses are from the abuses that occur in prisons within the United States every day. The difference is that jailhouse atrocities in the United States are unlikely to lead to increased terrorist activity and the deaths of U.S. soldiers.
