And now, it's "Saddam's Torture Videos"!

While we keep hearing about how awful Abu Ghraib has been because of the American soldiers who got out of hand there, we really need to keep the stories in context (which is something the left doesn't want you to do).

Saddam Hussain had people tortured at that prison for the heck of it. Not only that, he had some of the sessions videotaped. And thanks to the wonder of the internet (and some directions pointed by Jim Taranto), you, too, can see for yourself the horror of "Saddam's Torture Videos."

The American Enterprise Institute presented the videos in public at the beginning of the month in Washington, and while I think the videos are not suitable for anyone to see (let alone the weak of constitution), you can certainly look for yourself.

The videos include depictions of decapitation, amputation of fingers one-by-one, tongues hacked out with razor blades, all to the tune of Saddam's henchmen wailing his praises.

You can download Saddam's attrocities from the American Enterprise Institute. Don't say I didn't warn you!

But it's just ONE video! We have DOZENS of pictures of PFC England posing with Iraqis in homoerotic pyramids!

Marble, actually, there's lots more videos available out there. Why, several months ago I heard of such videos being sold on the streets in Iraq. Pentagon has a good number of these torture videos (made by Iraqis) that were confiscated but never been released. Plus, there's the documentary from one of the cable channels, A&E, I think, or was it History? about SH - some of the footages include clips where people are shown being thrown off the roof, executed at point blank by SH himself, etc. If that's not torture, I don't know what it is. Be my guest, go ahead and bury your head in the sand.

Or, you can call or email Fox Channel, and ask them to rerun the Hannity & Colmes show that aired last night, where they showed a bit of the tape that was shown at AEI. And watch the sadistic officer beat that prisoner on his lower back so hard that you can watch the skin turning purple while the other soldier hold's the prisoner's hands around the pole to keep him from falling down. And guess what? All three of them were Iraqis.

Easy Lola, did you see the {end LLL} tag? I think Marble was being sarcastic.....

Hmm . . . didn't know what {end LLL} meant - have never seen this before.
