Skip to comments.Report: Saddam's [own] Torture Scenes to Be Broadcast!
Posted on 05/16/2004 7:38:25 AM PDT by jmstein7
Hideously gruesome photographs and videotapes of Saddam Hussein's police torturing innocent Iraqis held at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison are said to be in the hands of the new Arab-language television network Alhurra, which is culling through the material deciding what to broadcast.
Novelist and screenwriter Roger Simon reports on his Web Site that the images include: * Photographs of actual live castrations of Kurds.
* Video tapes of two beheadings, with one featuring the executioners singing "Happy Birthday, Saddam" in Arabic as they carry out the grisly murder.
* More video of a detainee whose hand his tied to a board while his fingers are cut off one by one.
* People being thrown off four-story buildings, including one who was forced to wear a Superman costume.
* A man scourged ninety-nine times.
* Videos of babies being gassed to death.
Writes Simon, "I would like to know if any of these torturers is actually in Abu Ghraib right now. . . . I also would like to know what Senator Kennedy has to say about the moral equivalence of our actions after watching these tapes."
Its not a "charge", its the truth.
Sort of like the Fox News channel for ragheads
I think it is neither interesting or anything we need to watch. The idea here is not "who's worse", in some kind of voyeuristic 'can you top this' ghastly display. I don't know who's worse, the people who will watch it with eyes fixed... Exclaming how horrified they are as they watch it again and again, or the media who just knows us too well.
Kennedy is easy to understand. He is full of hate for decent people.
true but it wasn't. Irakis deserved hussein.
"true but it wasn't. Irakis deserved hussein"
The democrats seem to agree with you.
Funny how the truth works.
It's strange but I guess not when you realize it's democrats --- Arafat pays Sirhan Bishara Sirhan to murder RFK --- Hillary kisses Arafat, Ted doesn't seem to have a problem with Arafat either --- would probably give him a big smooch too. What a strange family, what a strange political party.
I always thought Clinton was the Eddie Haskell candidate and Kerry reminds me more of Lurch.
I like pizza. A lot of democrats eat pizza. So what? Those crappy irakis still deserved hussein.
Plus he knows he got by with murder. I wonder if he ever sobers up enough to remember that night MaryJo drowned. Poor girl --- drowned by her own married boyfriend.
The reason why the left wing media liars live in liberal New York is because if they lived anywhere in normal America various body parts and facial features would be in constant disrepair.
I don't think this is a good idea for the alphabet networks or cable channels to show these. Let this prision abuse BS die already. We have a WAR to WIN and loosing or negotiating are not options!
I could not believe what I saw on the Nick Berg video, and trust that there's more of the same in the Sadaam shows. The world needs to know.
And Teddy-boy should be made to watch them all for the rest of his prestoopnik life.
Yup. I remember seeing them on FNC months ago also; I was waiting for these to come back out.
With the media's recent track record they'll probably incorrectly proclaim them as more instances of American abuse while showing them.
NOBODY deserved Hussein, and when did the Iraqis ever get to vote for an alternative?
Whereas in the US we do get to vote in the government we deserve. Fortunately, in the 2000 election, the Infinite Power gave us the government we really needed. Just a little jiggling with the Electoral College, there, by putting nearly all the fraudulent votes in the 'Blue' states, and preventing an overturn of the more nearly honest results in Florida.
After Desert Storm, Poppy Bush encouraged the Irakis to rebel against Hussein, and after a few shots, they gave up and cried about how they were betrayed by the evil Americans.
Not in the mainstream media...They're in a feeding frenzy. But something always happens to put things into perspective. I thought the Berg story would do it. but many Americans aren't really aware of it. I'm amazed that my own family just knows about it in a vague sense.
