    not good at all... i don't see this coming from some wacked out lib or conniving politician but a highly decorated army officer and several shocked enlisted troops.

    And now HRW has a specific report out about the 82nd Airborne's alleged abuse of Iraqis, straight from the mouths of frustrated and shocked 82nd Airborne members.

    Wonderful. Now the anti-Americans the world over can have another year-long orgasm. I sure hope those jollies were worth it.

    It's interesting to see that none of the republicans who have posted in other threads here have ignored this one. Hmmmmmmm

    Most are understandably skeptic.

    Theim responded, and shared my feelings that this stupidity by a sizeable minority will harm the efforts of the rest of us to bring peace and stability to Iraq, as well as to restore confidence in America.

    This is the first I have heard of it.

    I am a registered Republican.

    Put me down as saying I wish to see these charges investigated,
    any abuse halted, and anyone guilty of abuse punished.

    Ditto and once again I noticed the 'outting' of possible abuse came from the military, not the press.

    That's why I trust this more than the Newsweek deal. This officer and the two NCOS (along with others) went to HRW after risking their careers beforehand and being unsatisfied with the Army's response. This isn't political grandstanding, just good ol outrage.

    This could be good. Shows the world that we still have justice here.
