. . . Not to mention the rest of the Arab world.
A picture released by ABC News May 19, 2004 shows a woman identified as Specialist Sabrina Harman posing over the body of detainee Manadel a-Jamadi in Abu Ghraib prison. According to testimony from Spc. Jason Kenner, obtained by ABC News, the man was brought to the prison by US Navy Seals in good health. Kenner said he saw extensive bruising on the detainee’s body when he was brought out of the showers, dead. Kenner says the body was packed in ice during a ‘battle’ between CIA (news – web sites) and military interrogators over who should dispose of the body. The Justice Department (news – web sites) opened an investigation into this death and four others today following a referral from the CIA. The photo was taken by Sgt. Charles Fredrick who in e-mails to his family has asked why the people responsible for the prisoner’s death were not being prosecuted in the same manner that he is.
Ooh, a dead detainee; that’s a great fucking reason to be grinning for the camera and giving a thumb’s up signal, you fucking idiot.
Hearts and minds continue to wither on the vine.
