Tortured screams ring out as Iraqis take over Abu Ghraib

"'Please help us, we want the human rights officers, we want the Americans to come back'"

This is off topic, but as a Yank, I just couldn't resist it.

Apparently, American "torture" at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq wasn't THAT bad.

After all, panties on the head and being posed for a photo-op aren't THAT bad compared to REAL torture that Arabs can come up with.

It reminds me of a piece written by a chaplain in Guantanamo Bay. They spent 9 hours talking a prisoner who was being shipped back home out of a tree because he preferred Gitmo's prison to what he faced when he went back home.

I'm sure this headline will be splashed all over the NY Times for months as well, just like the original Abu Ghraib pictures were. NOT!
