That's right HILLARY is the issue here -- not the people who brought disgrace to their uniforms and stuck the President in this mess. We have to focus on treasonous HILLARY...not the people who made people get into a sex pyramid or who were responsible for the even worse materials that Sec Rumsfeld warned everyone might come out. He did quite well, actually. But the issue isn't him, or what was done to the prisoners, who in the chain of command knew this was going on. It's HILLARY who should be the focus. If Hillary and Bill Clinton died a lot of folks would have a very empty political agenda. (And I bet in the end HILLARY somehow got word out to the people at the prison to do this so it would discredit the administration.).

Nah, Hillary isn't the issue with the whole scandal. But, if she did leak classified documents, that is just as wrong. I haven't seen anyone on this thread say that the treatment of these prisoners was a good thing.

The treatment has been denounced repeatedly here.

Hillary is a side show that bears watching.

Wrong.

It's: When Hillary and Bill Clinton die a lot of folks will have a very big party.

Not that it will make any difference to you, but the release of the photos and publicizing this humiliation is probably an even greater violation of the Geneva Convention than the humiliation itself. THAT is why this release of information is an important one. After all, if no one saw these pictures, how bad would the reputation of the prisoner be damaged? Who would have known?

It is the release of the photos that is the greater crime here, yes, even greater than the "sex pyramid" and "naked".
CBS and Hitlery ought to have known that - heck - common sense would tell you that! All officers, and most non-officers, in the military should have been aware of that, too. To say the higher-ups in the Old Media were not liable for this humiliation is being very disingenuous.
