On Saturday, a source in the Army in Baghdad was able to find a computer with functioning e-mail and sent out eight shocking images of U.S. troops doing unspeakable things to Iraqi citizens. After carefully reviewing the images, I am convinced there is a compelling public interest in publishing the images.
Parents are cautioned that these images, as the source who obtained the photos said, “are graphic and may cause a physical reaction.”
Documented in these eight images are the activities of various civil affairs forces. Ostensibly in Iraq to help Iraqis rebuild their civilization, these images make clear that that isn’t all they’ve been doing.
This sort of thing is not what I usually cover here, but I felt the images were important enough to bring to the world’s attention.

I’ll say again that it’s no secret that I was opposed to the Iraq war from the start. It may have been the right thing to do, but it was entered into for reasons we now know to be wrong. And as these images show, the situation in Iraq is growing ever more desperate every day. Something needs to be done about this, and soon.
