Iraq scandal leaves White House reeling: Adviser Rove says it may take decades to undo the damage done already - "pictures were undermining relationships all over the globe ... such abuse is just the tip of the iceberg ... goes on all the time because Americans are biased against Arabs. They think Bush and his people engineered this whole war to strike out at the Arab world"

Floundering in a moral swamp: "not an excuse to blame these atrocious acts on a few rotten apples. Those in command should have established prison regimes in which such abuses could not happen. And there is growing evidence that these acts are not down to a few rogue sadists in the American forces but part of a systematic process 'tantamount to torture' about which the Red Cross complained

Sexual and Sadistic Torture of Prisoners

Breaking News! President Bush was told of Iraqi prison abuses by Rumsfeld on approximately January 15, 2004!


New abuse photo developments: Graphic pictures part of a thousand digital pictures passed around among US military police who served at the Abu Ghraib prison

Inhuman and Degrading: As each successive layer of concealment is stripped away from the US military prison system in Iraq, the picture emerges not just of regrettable isolated "abuses" by a few bad guys - but of a much wider system of degradation and torture which has been deliberately exported to Iraq with an imperial contempt for the coalition's own proclaimed values

Abuse may have been 'ordered': May have been ordered by US military intelligence to extract information from the captives, and was possibly more cruel than officially acknowledged
