    No I did not.

    How come all the world did agree on the pictures they are true, did they authenticate them?

    Because most of the world is too lazy to think for themselves and like to go along with whatever other people think.

    Me too.

    With modern technology, it's going to be difficult to spot the fakes, imo. Also it's not that hard to stage fake photos, as was the case with the fake British pics.

    Actually, besides that one several of them are from a batch that was acknowledged to be fake... that is, they're not taken in Iraq but from a staged porn photo shoot that has been available online for months.

    Detracts from the site's credibility to have those mixed in with the real shots from the prison.

    Yes, something is very wrong with the treatment IRAQi prisoners suffered under the american prison gaurds. These actions do not reflect the attitude of the vast vast vast majority of US soldiers, on the ground in Iraq.

    And from some of the reports that I have read, it also give pause to think, that there are a lot of private secruity personell in Iraq as well, a great many times more than in any previous engagement/situation. Some of these pictures could be from privately contracted "soldiers" rather than US Military.

    In any case, the twisted actions of a very few sickos are reflecting poorly upon the vast majority of troops who are trying to help Iraq.

    Also, look at the source that is hosting those photos: http://www.arabvc.com/

    What do you think their slant is? Do you think they would stick to using Authenticated photos? Or use any photos/pictures fake or real, that would create distrust towards the US & British Militaries?

    I think this is the first time someone acually said this I think I am going to cry ! I know my friends do not abuse the IRAQ people. They treat them like they are humans. Just seems that people just want to jump on anything to accuse america of something. Which in they do not know anything about it. They just "Think" they do, because well they say so. .

    I think it is terrible. I am glad a fellow american soldier reported this and they are cleaning it up. it is not acceptable and I think it is vile and disgusting. I hope the people that were raping the young woman go to jail for rape and I hope the others get commensurate sentances for their crimes.

    I think it shows a difference and an honor that when bad elements are found - they are punished and expelled. I can not say the same for the other acts that have gone on.

    in fact I dont think you will find anyone who will support these acts.

    unfortunately htere are many that support the heinous and far worse brutal murders of prisoners on the other side and it is unlikely they will be brought to justice unless by the us.

    some of you will not like my statements - but they are fact.

    I disagree - american troops did not do worse - and these few that did bad I hope they are punished severely - the rape by coalition soldiers is disgusting and pisses me off so bad I would like to presonally kick their puking butts for it.

    there is no excuse for it and it should stand on its own as terrible - it does not excuse saddam or any other peoples bad behavior - nor vice versa.

    Saddam threw people off of buildings, gased 100's of thousands, this seems to be an isolated incedent.

    To say American troops did worse is not only ignorant, but flat out wrong.
