    Here is one good reason why Republicans should be barred from office.

    Even when investigators found a criminal homicide, the US Department of Defense was reluctant to prosecute those involved or who were aware of the abuse. A soldier who shot a prisoner to death was not prosecuted because he was not informed about the rules for using force against prisoners.[38] At Camp Bucca in September 2003, an International Committee of the Red Cross monitor saw a guard shoot a prisoner in the chest.

    The monitor said, "The shooting showed a clear disregard for human life and security of the persons deprived of their liberty.[9]" The US Army concluded that the shooting was justifiable. Escaping, nonthreatening detainees were shot on other occasions.[39] The base commander at Tikrit prison used an administrative procedure to preempt the prosecution of the soldier who killed Obeed Hethere Radad (see Table ). Most of the soldiers prosecuted for criminal homicides of prisoners received nonjudicial punishments, such as a reduction in rank, and the record of charges, punishments, and even the name of the victim are sealed.[3]

    You are also unaware that innocent women and children were raped, abused, tortured and murdered? Did you miss the last 8 years? Really? The point is if we allow republicans to gain control of government again, we can expect more torture, rapes, and murders to begin again.

    Another photo shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner.[10]

    Other photos show sexual assaults on prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube, and a female prisoner having her clothing forcibly removed to expose her breasts.[10]

    Taguba has supported President Obama's decision not to release the photos, stating, “These pictures show torture, abuse, rape and every indecency.”[10]

    In other alleged cases, female inmates were said to be raped by soldiers. [12].

    In one reported case, senior US officials admitted rape had taken place at Abu Ghraib.[13]

    Children, he said, “suffer from torture, rape, (and) starvation” and do not know why they have been arrested. He added the children have been victims of “random” arrests “not based on any legal text.” [14]

    I'm aware that you copy and paste without putting links in. Your opinion is as worthless as your post.
