Bad Apples Redux 

You have no doubt read about the latest batch of torture photos from Abu Ghraib. (And by the way, whatever happened to the notion of renaming the place "Camp Redemption"? That idea had such promise!) If you happen to take a look at the photos, remember that we have yet to see an unknown number of "pictures of prisoners in sexually humiliating acts which were too graphic to broadcast." You may also want to reflect upon the Junta's two-prong response: First, there's nothing new here (sadly, that's almost true), and second, it is irresponsible for journalists to tell the truth.

Makes you real proud, doesn't it?
