Congress calls new photos "disturbing"#0
Posted: 5/12/04 at 3:51pm
WASHINGTON (AP) - Members of Congress viewed fresh photos and videos of Iraqi prisoner abuse on Wednesday, and said they included disturbing images of torture and humiliation.

...

"I expected that these pictures would be very hard on the stomach lining and it was significantly worse than anything that I had anticipated," said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. "Take the worse case and multiply it several times over."

...

Several senators, speaking on condition of anonymity, said photos of sexual intercourse were among the images that Pentagon officials screened for lawmakers in a top-secret room in the Capitol.

"Several senators, speaking on condition of anonymity"

I'm more than a little disturbed by that. If this is not the time to openly speak out and let your stance as an elected official be known, then when would that time be?

After the photos are released. There was probably a gentleperson's agreement not to talk about it yet. Til after 60 Minutes II, I suppose.

orion - you are making absolutely no sense

What is an "assbag"?

A bag of ass?

A bag for the ass?

The ass of a particularly undesireable old woman?

Ass bag. I don't know what it means either, but I am incorporating it into my vocabulary immediately, and I am actively anticipating the next time someone pisses me off.

papa - HOW DARE YOU STEAL MY EXIT!

But since it was typed, and not a photo or video, no one will ever comprehend the actions you described. Did you actually "wail mournfully"? Or was it more like "hysterical sobbing"? It sounds like you slammed the door pretty hard, but without a visual representation, the concept is completely lost on me. I fear you are sanitizing the event and we have a right to view your humiliation regardless how you or your loved ones feel. Until I see it with my own eyes, I am unable to empathize or draw an emotional response. Therefore, I can do nothing but remain completely apathetic to anything other than photographic representations.

Are people really that stupid?

*sigh*

What am I saying? Bush is President.

Will people remain this stupid? We'll see....if Bush is reelected, then the answer is a resounding "YES"!

four more years!

and how dare you call those folks who need the photographic evidence splashed before them stupid. they're not stupid, they're closet voyeurs indulging their sub-conscious fantasies while maintaining a strong front of indignant righteousness. why i can just see iflit in fatigues, a smoke dangling from her lips as she...oops, without pictures it's pointless for me to go on.

Actually, an "Ass Bag" is slang for a colostomy bag. Shall I put up a link for a photo of one, or do you get the picture? re: congress calls new photos 'disturbing'

i had a stinking, uh i mean sneaking, suspicion that it might be that, but was unwilling to make such a leap without a hearing or two and a few committees to help me sort it out.

Sueleen - It depends, the more disturbing the image, the more the public "needs" and has a "right" to see it. If the photo is generic and devoid of shock value, then it is of little or no consequence.

Matt, I hope your remarks aren't meant as digs toward me for what i said in the other thread. I thought we were having a civilized, intellectual debate. A simple exchange of opinion.

i don't wanna put, uh, words, um, in matt's mouth, but i would hazard that he was speaking in more general terms as opposed to specifically targetting you. iflit, maybe, because she sings kumbaya at the drop of a hat and smells of elderberries...i mean patchouli (patchouli? god bless you. thank you).

What was disturbing was the silence from the rest of the world & the moderate arab quarter re the execution of Mr Berg. These piles of human excrement who did it deserve to be removed frm the earth as soon as possible.

To those who know I have retired from discussing or getting involved in politics, it is american politics. This is something different. Kerry or Bush I could not care less but these people are sick. Previously Christian fundamentalists were compared to terrorists. Tell me the last time Christian fundamentalists preformed an atrocity like this. The Iraq prisoner issue is a smoke screen for them justifying what they did. What was their excuse for Daniel Pearl ?

These are vermin that should be hunted down & summarily executed on the spot. Brave souls , all behind masks chopping off the head of a man tied up.

I will say a prayer & light a candle for him & his family. All very sad.
