Torture at Abu Ghraib by Seymour M. Hersh
Torture at Abu Ghraib Seymour M. Hersh

In the era of Saddam Hussein, Abu Ghraib, twenty miles west of Baghdad, was one of the worlds most notorious prisons, with torture, weekly executions, and vile living conditions. As many as fifty thousand men and womenno accurate count is possiblewere jammed into Abu Ghraib at one time, in twelve-by-twelve-foot cells that were little more than human holding pits.

It was OK to start a War with Iraq, Because?

a) We are afraid and they have Oil, makes it a great reason to get the oil?
b) We think a war could make it possible to make $Billions, war cost $500 Billion and counting.
c) Companies associated with the high ups in the Bush regime are all associates of Oil Companies?
d) Using the office of the president, prosecutions of any wrong doings would go un-punished making everything un-accountable, the perfect crime.
e) Anything goes, even torture, if anyone gets in the way, stick them in prison and torture them to death if necessary, call them enemy combatants.
d) All of the above.

2. The $500 billion has been funneled
to private contractors like Halliburton. It's a grand money washing scheme for the ultra-rich imperial lords like Cheney and friends.
