Another Side of Abu Ghriab?
So in reposting this I ask, how many times have you heard about the original usage of Abu Ghriab?
The Other Abu Ghraib
Bad Americans... BAD AMERICANS!
There are two wings to Abu Ghraib prison. In one wing, American personnel humiliated Iraqi prisoners by putting them on dog leashes, etc. In another wing, Saddam Hussein's son beheaded women, etc.
Which wing are you more familiar with?
The Defeatocrats and their propaganda machine (aka: MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, NPR, etc.) are yet again resurrecting Abu Ghraib prison and all the "torture" that took place there. But here's the rub... which wing do you think their hypocritical rage is aimed at? (By the way, should I even bring up Nancy Pelosi knowing/not knowing about waterboarding?)
Here's some of the article from WND.com from back in 2004; (Emphasis mine)
One journalist present was New York Post's Washington bureau chief Deborah Orin, who wrote of "savage scenes of decapitation, fingers chopped off one by one, tongues hacked out with a razor blade – all while victims shriek in pain and the thugs chant Saddam's praises."
Noting that "Saddam's henchmen took the videos as newsreels to document their deeds in honor of their leader," Orin added, "but these awful images didn't show up on American TV news."
The following, according to the State Department report, were routine in Iraq during Saddam Hussein's rule:
- Medical experimentation
- Hammering nails into the fingers and hands
- Amputating sex organs or breasts with an electric carving knife
- Spraying insecticides into a victim's eyes
- Branding with a hot iron
- Committing rape while the victim's spouse is forced to watch
- Pouring boiling water into the victim's rectum
- Nailing the tongue to a wooden board
- Extracting teeth with pliers
- Using bees and scorpions to sting naked children in front of their parents
Saddam also routinely tortured and murdered women. The daily newspaper Babel, owned by Uday, Hussein's eldest son, contained a public admission on Feb. 13, 2001 of beheading women who were suspected of prostitution.
Let me ask you again... which wing of Abu Ghraib are you more familiar with?
If that doesn't infuriate you, then facts truly do not matter to you. I'll keep you in my prayers either way.
