"Al Qaeda's leader in Iraq beheaded Berg and vowed more killings in revenge for the "Satanic degradation" of Iraqi prisoners at the hands of U.S. troops, an Islamist Web site said on Tuesday."
Has anyone else noticed that those Iraqi prisoners appeared to be very complicit in their supposed Satanic degradation? I don't recall in any of the pictures seeing a one of the prisoners hand cuffed or their hands tied behind their backs. If I were in their position I would have been fighting those who were supposedly making me do those things. Remember they would give their lives for 72 virgins.
Somehow I feel the 5-7 military personnel involved in this were sympathetic to Muslims and with the help of these prisoners these photo's were all staged.
Am I the only one who feels this way?

I believe that I read that there were Iraqis working at the prison. Is there a missing piece?

I have felt certain from the outset that there was something not right about those pictures. I don't know what for sure, but from day one they just haven't looked to me like the Real McCoy. A lot of little things, like all those prisoners and one or two guards, etc. Something just doesn't ring true about the whole thing. Maybe we will know the full story someday.
