For some reason the ACLU thinks it is better for everyone involved if we all see more pictures of Abu Ghraib torture.
I have all sorts of questions. Why is this needed? So Justice can be served against the soldiers who did this? Oh wait, that already happened–justice I’m sure would have been served in Iraq, had any Iraqis (stay with me, this is just a hypothetical) tortured prisoners. Maybe they did it so that every left-wing group from here to San Francisco will have another reason to hate the U.S.? No, I’m pretty sure they’ve already made up their minds on that one. Oh, maybe it’s so the Iraqis who underwent these terrible things can see their naked bodies all over American television and newspapers? Hmm, sounds right, but I don’t think the ACLU will admit to it.. Perhaps it is intended to stir up anti-American sentiment in the country where we are currently at war? Because, if we lose this, things will be so much better for the Iraqis under another dictatorship! None of those reflect very well on the ACLU… Perhaps eventually they’ll tell us which one of the above is the real motive, because I can’t think of any others.
