"And I'm Proud To Be An American, Where We Torture Kids To Death..."
You may not have heard about this, being that the media was fixated on Paris Hilton and Cynthia McKinney, but computer data storage units, such as hard drives and flash drives, are being swiped from US military bases in Afghanistan and sold in nearby open-air markets-- and some of the drives have grisly information and images stored on them:
Some of the data would be valuable to the enemy, including: -- Names and personal information for dozens of DOD interrogators; -- Documents on an “interrogation support cell” and interrogation methods; -- IDs and photos of U.S. troops. With information like this, “You could cripple our U.S. intelligence collection capability in Afghanistan,” says Francona. Among the photos of Americans are pictures of individuals who appear to have been tortured and killed, most too graphic to show. NBC News does not know who caused their injuries. The Pentagon would not comment on the photos.The Pentagon is damned lucky that the merchants who got the stolen drives didn't simply turn them over to Al-Jazeera. Then instead of NBC News hiding the images of torture and murder from us, they'd be all over the world by now. Wonder if Bartcop knows about this yet?
I despise what has become of the United States under the Bush junta.
Freelancers have brought out far more damaging stuff than al-Jazeera.It's only the size of their audience that scares Bushco
