Speaking Of Information Extraction Mechanisms...

Major General Antonio Taguba, the former army officer who, in a 2004 probe, documented widespread detainee abuse at the prison, has told The Daily Telegraph: "These pictures show torture, abuse, rape and every indecency."

According to Taguba's description, as summarized by the paper:
At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee.

Further photographs are said to depict sexual assaults on prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube.

Another apparently shows a female prisoner having her clothing forcibly removed to expose her breasts.
If these are indeed the photos at issue in the lawsuit, and the Telegraph is accurately rendering Taguba's description of them, then that may help explain Obama's decision to keep them under wraps -- out of fear that such explosive images could legitimately place our troops in danger.

Hum... could this be the source of red state angst:
And I’m guessing that Kristia’s answer is our soldiers on the ground, who will be given the full Westboro Baptist treatment by the local Baghdadis. You know, they’ll be carrying signs saying “Allah Hates Fags” while throwing hand grenades and shit. They’ll, of course, be doing this because they have no other beef with the occupying troops other than the gays in the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad carrying on and having parties and stuff — which is, of course, the very cliff that Kristia was just headed right off:</i>
More offensive than our men in arms in an Islamic country are men in drag, as this strikes at the very core of propriety and decency within their culture.
There may have been stupider things said at Renew America but, if so, I’m hard pressed to think of them.
