Baggy BVD Torture??


You would think that we would have learned from the Abu Ghraib pictures. I do not think that this is going to do anything to help win the "hearts and minds" of the Iraqi people. Let alone those of the great Muslim world.

Meanwhile in Iraq today there were Shia and Sunni protests against the American occupation. In other Iraqi news, tensions are mounting between the Shia and Sunni.

Hey James. More "Memo" news which might interest you:
Following the letter from 89 House Democrats to the White House asking about the memo's authenticity was ignored, with Scott McClellan seeing "no need" to respond - I guess because the authenticity is not in any doubt - (see Doug Jehl in Friday's NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/20/politics/20weapons.html ) comes a report in the Sunday Times suggesting the Democrats are going to send a delegation to London "to investigate Britain’s role in preparations for the war in Iraq." See http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2087-1622378,00.html
They're saying they hope to make it a big issue for the mid-term elections. I don't know if it can run for 18 months, but perhaps there is still more in the story...

Keep up the good work!
