Abu Ghraib Inmates ‘Like Cheerleaders’

Specialist Charles Graner Jr is the first soldier to go on trial on charges related to the Abu Ghraib jail scandal, which came to light last year with the release of demeaning photographs of prisoners, including pictures of naked inmates apparently being paraded on leashes and being stacked in piles. The lawyer defending him at the court martial in Texas, Guy Womack, said: “Don’t cheerleaders all over America make pyramids every day?” He added: “It’s not torture.”

Right. But let’s see.

They’re clothed.

It’s consensual.

They’re not being imprisoned.

And um – Good God, what a way for a lawyer to reinforce the stereotype of being a totally insensitive asshole?

    A different view, Andy.

    Let’s remember an attorney must give the best defense possible as part of his “professional” resonsibility.

    Now, I remember the last time I was outraged like you. It was during the Gregory K case about the boy who wanted to divorce his parents. I remember being shocked at the utter nonsense the “parents'” attorney used as an argument.

    And of course, they won.

    Believe it or not, sometimes, an attorney unethically makes a very poor …best defense… because they don’t really like or care for their client.

    Perhaps this guy is sabotaging?

    I can picture Lionel Hutz making that comment… “Now Marge, you’ve come to the right place. By hiring me as your lawyer, you also get this smoking monkey.”

    GRANER IS A PUPPET USED BY THE BUSH MILITARY MACHINE! HE WAS ONLY FOLLOWING THE DIRECT ORDERS GIVEN TO HIM BY HIS SUPERIORS. THE OLD SAYING GOES ” SHIT ROLLS DOWNHILL” AND THERE IS NO GREATER INJUSTICE THAN THIS. HIS COMMANDING OFFICERS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO THESE SO CALLED CRIMES. IT’S FINE FOR THE TERRORISTS TO SHOOT OUR TROOPS AT POINT BLANK RANGE, TO BEHEAD AMERICANS AND THEN BURN THEIR BODIES WHILE HANGING FROM A BRIDGE IN SOME DESERT CITY IN IRAQ. BUT, GOD FORDID, YOU EMBARASS A DIRTY RAGHEAD BY SIMULATING A HOMOSEXUAL ACT OR PUTTING HIM ON DISPLAY WITH A LEASH ON HIS FILTHY ARAB NECK, NOT CUTTING IT OFF WITH A KNIFE, WHAT A FUCKING ATTROCITY. I HAVE NO REGARD TO THEIR FEELINGS OR THEIR DOUBLE STANDARDS. I HAVE A SON WHO IS ON HIS THIRD TOUR IF DUTY IN THAT LAWLESS, DUSTY AND UNGRATEFULL LAND. I CAN ONLY PRAY THAT HE KILLS MORE FUCKING ARAB PIECES OF DOG SHIT THAN IS HUMANLY POSIBLE. TRUST ME, HE FEELS THE SAME WAY. HE HAS LOST MANY CLOSE FRIENDS TO THE COWARDLESS ROADSIDE BOMBINGS THAT THESE WORHTLESS. FUCKING SMELLY, AND BACK-STABBING PIECES OF HUMAN GARBAGE THAT THESE COCK SUCKERS ARE. AND IF ANY OF YOU LIBERAL AMERICAN RIGHT WINGERS WANT TO DEBATE MY COMMENTS, FEEL FREE TO RESPOND. BY THE WAY, I AM I FORMER VIETNAM VETERAN AND PROUD OF IT, ALONG WITH GRENADA AND PANAMA. SO IF ANY OF YOU PUSSIES (NON-VETERANS) WANT TO RESPOND, GO FOR IT. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    This war astonishes me, but not as much as the people who support it. What happened to the America I served as a soldier (1959)? I am afraid we are seeing the dissolution of my memories. God help us all. Shalom. -Bob

    Who gives a fuck about those Jawas anyway? They wipe their ass with their hand and butt fuck each other (not to mention that pedophillia and beastiality is commonplace) but hey, what am I saying here. The U.S.A. is the great satan so why can’t we just get along. Fucking dopes.
