NEW YORK -- Pictures of detainee abuse at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison must be released despite government claims that they could damage America's image, a federal judge ruled Thursday.
Many of you readers have made the point in the past that these heinous war pictures need to be made public to put a face on the war. I suppose you are right. It hurts me as a parent to see what the military can do to our young people who sign up thinking that they will build strong character. It hurts me as a human being to see what people do to each other. Everyone was once somebody's baby, someone's precious angel. Let's hold our leaders accountable for every atrocity that is photographed. These asstards think that we will achieve peace through war? Morons. Not unless our troops kill everyone else will we ever have peace at this rate.
