OZ TV AIRS NEW TORTURE PHOTOS
DRUDGE linked to UK Mail ^ | 15 MAY 09 | David Gardner

Posted on 05/15/2009 9:12:52 AM PDT by DCBryan1

President Barack Obama was today accused of a major U-turn after he decided to keep the controversial military commissions set up by George Bush to prosecute terror suspects.

The surprise White House announcement reversed Mr Obama’s campaign pledge to rely on America’s conventional criminal court system.

It was the president’s second U-turn this week after he changed his mind and pledged to try and block the court-ordered release of damning photographs showing US soldiers abusing prisoners. Last night’s move led to an outcry from shocked human rights campaigners who thought Mr Obama intended to dismantle the terror tribunals after calling them ‘an enormous failure’ during last year’s presidential campaign.

In one of his first acts as president, Mr Obama obtained a 120-day suspension of the military commissions established at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba that was seen as the death knell for one of the Bush administration’s key platforms in the war on terror.

Article doesn't match header...but I KNEW that Obama would find a way to get those photos leaked. ANYTHING for him to destroy America. I DO question his patriotism. I do think that he could care less if American soldiers get attacked/killed as long as he moves forward with his "vision" of "change".

Back in 2001, 2002 and thereabouts, REAL Americans all wanted to torture those pukes.

Anyone tells you they didn't, is telling you a lie.

Is it the pink sheets that is the torture? Because I have woke up hanging over the bed like that several times.

The Daily Mail link is dead,,,,someone must be getting his/her ass served on a platter.............

The jury is not in on this, but it does raise suspicion about why Rosa the reporter was appointed to the high Pentagon position..........eh?

That pic, along with others,can be found here. Judging by the date in the link, they were published in an Australian newspaper in Feb of 2006, so I don't understand how they could possibly be the same pics that are being withheld. I found this info on DU yesterday and dismissed it as irrelevant due to the date.

I’m sorry...I find it hard to believe the U.S. military would issue Martha Stewart sheets. These are not legit. I’ll bet they’re from some frat party.

If hamsters were involved, some people might consider it torture.

But not Richard, I suspect.

Me too. It's much worse than the underwear on the head torture. This is what THAT looks like (WARNING: GRAPHIC).

I read that one torture was putting PLAYBOY magazine, open to a photo of a lovely, on the lap of a victim. “May Allah help me in the afterlife to find 71 more like this one” he was heard to scream in his agony.

The poor young child in post 39 was stoned to death for the Islamic crime of “wearing images of moose”.

Moose are considered sacred in Islam, mainly because of their habit of donating their horns to western taverns.

The torture is the floral sheets.
Even my daughter wouldn’t have those.

And actually, I caught both the girls hanging off the bed like that last week. Laughing like there was no tomorrow. I joined them. It was fun!
