Dozens more pictures of prisoner abuse by American troops in Abu Ghraib will be released after an order by a federal judge. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein rejected government arguments that the images would provoke terrorists and incite violence against troops in Iraq.

He ordered the defence department to release 74 photos and three videos provided by Sergeant Joseph Darby, some of which were leaked last year and set off the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal, potentially opening the military up to more embarrassment from a scandal that stirred outrage around the world..

Should we be able to see ALL the pictures of prisoner abuse in Iraq?

Lynndie England making Iraqis look like they are having an orgy
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/3/05 - 2:24:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why would you want to? Do you get off on torture by proxy?
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/3/05 - 9:14:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Do I personally want to look at all of them? No. Should we be able to know about the abuse going on in Iraq and be able to see the pictures if they exist? Yes.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/3/05 - 9:25:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
We already know it was happening. They should be kept from John Q. Public. There's no reason to show them to the average citizen.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/3/05 - 9:25:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Unless you're on the jury, why would you even need to see these? It's just ghoulish.

There is no reason why should be kept from the average citizen.

16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/3/05 - 10:44:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
should? yes

want to? no

16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/17/05 - 5:16:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
why would anybody want too unless they are sick
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/28/05 - 8:25:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
And I would actually want to because...?
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 10/30/05 - 2:02:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, but u shouldnt be shown on the regular news, some ppl dont want to see it, so they shouldnt have to
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/4/05 - 9:32:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why do we care? Do you understand what these people do our boys when one of them is captured? No, bc they don't live through it. This is a sick sadistic group of people who won't even let women drive. DRIVE!!! How many of you got your licenses the day you turned 16? I DID!!
And all this GITMO bs has got to stop. A report came out saying that detainees gain at least three pant sizes bc they are being fed properly.
Just be glad I'm not in charge of them. You wanna talk about hurt? You have no idea.
Ya'll can criticize me all the live long day, I don't give a rats tail. These people deserve no better than they give. Don't dish it out if you can't take it like my grandmother and mother always said.

^Your theory would make (a tiny bit) more sense if the same prioners we were abusing were responsible for abusing our soldiers, but they aren't. Would you want to be held responsbile for something someone else does just because you happen to live in the same country or belong to the same religion?

Also, aren't we supposed to be portraying ourselves as examples to Iraq? We're doing a sh*tty job if we're abusing their soldiers. We are not children and two wrongs don't make a right. The "if you dish it out be prepared to take it" philosophy may work when you're four, but it doesn't work as intentional law and that has been proven.

They're in Yahoo Photos somewhere.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/9/05 - 12:14:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
No that would be morbid.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/22/05 - 7:19:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
No I don't think they should be open to the public. I think it really scares kids who happen to be watching the news. But then again my husband is in the Marines so I am married to the Corps., and so the less we hear about military when we are trying to relax and watch tv at home ---the better.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/3/06 - 10:18:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
who would want to see it?
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/3/06 - 10:25:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, why would that be necessary?

Why morbid? No one died. They are torture pictures, not snuff films.

^^^Agreed
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 1/24/06 - 5:44:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think we should be able to.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 1/24/06 - 5:54:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
War is ugly...so are these photos.

Maybe if people realized how disgusting war really is they would lose their stomach for it.

Can't be any worse than romanticising war.

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/2/06 - 8:34:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
We should be able to, but I wouldn't want to.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/2/06 - 8:35:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I suppose you should be able to if you want to. Personally I don't want to either, but I can see why some people would.

Disgusting? How is it disgusting? I'm really starting to wonder if people understand what they mean by "abuse"?

16 yrs ago - Sunday 5/7/06 - 1:37:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't want to see any of those pictures.
