Americans Commit More Torture than any Muslim

The US defence department has agreed to release 74 photos and three videos - many that have already been published - that depict prisoner abuse in Abu Ghraib.

The defence department had appealed against an order by Alvin Hellerstein, a US district judge, that said the government must release photos provided by Sergeant Joseph Darby, whose photos set off the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal.

After initially arguing the publication of the images could incite more violence in Iraq, the government withdrew its appeal and promised to release the images within seven days of the court's approval.

In court papers, the government noted that website Salon.com published images depicting the treatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Salon.com recently posted 279 photographs and 19 videos from Abu Ghraib on its website.

The defence department will identify any of Darby's images already published on Salon.com and release edited versions of any that may not have appeared on the website, it said in court documents.
The pictures have been edited so the faces of the prisoners are not shown.

A US defence official, who asked not to be named, said: "This stipulation only applies to the 74 photos and three videos that were part of the litigation. We reserve the right to repeat arguments and to appeal future orders to release other images."

This is obviously a comedic post. Amputations, public whipping and stonings are meted out by Sharia.

Yes of course humiliating prisoners and subjecting the Qu'ron to blasphemy is comedic to Americans. No wonder your country cannot win war on terror.

Perhaps, anum you need desperatley to consider the difference between a society which PUBLICY CONDEMNS, PROSECUTES and jails those who humiliate prisoners whose comrades SAW THE HEADS OFF CAPTIVES WITH GINTSU KNIVES to put this on TV shouting GOd is great while leading Imams, like Qaradawi justify mass murder when purposefully directed by strategy and tactics at innocents, and continuously quote racist hate speech and incitement to murder, like the Stone and Tree.

Anum panties on the head of prisoners is not torture. Bill Clinton is said to be fond of the practice.

Amputation of body parts, stoning
andgang rape are a few of the sentences meted out by sharia courts . I didn't realize you do comedic posts.

“The Religion of Pieces” represent the physical remains of the people, churches, synagogues, religious statues, cars, trucks, etc. that have stood in the path of“The Religion of Peace”. There is enough gore, blood, destruction, and nightmares to last everyone in this world a lifetime.
