    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military has investigated the deaths of 25 prisoners held by American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and determined that two prisoners were murdered by Americans, one an Army soldier and the other a CIA contractor, Army officials said on Tuesday.
    An Army official said that a soldier was convicted in the U.S. military justice system of killing a prisoner by hitting him with a rock, and was reduced in rank to private and thrown out of the service but did not serve any jail time.

    The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a private contractor who worked for the CIA was found to have committed the other homicide against a prisoner.

    Word of these investigations came as the Pentagon continued to investigate the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. forces at the Abu Ghraib prison on the outskirts of Baghdad.

    Why do you choose to champion the negative, DK?

    Until a certain group of people can pull their heads out of their butts and realize we need to clean our own house before we try to teach the rest of the world how to live.

    So this incident renders the whole american military and the iraqui effort a failure? You wish. No one with a clue sees it that way.

    Well put.
    I'd be curious to hear the details of these cases.
    Murder someone and get demoted, interesting.

    Maybe I can go and kill someone and collect unemployment...
    or not.

    I've been talking to a classmate who is a non-active marine about his time in Afghanistan and Iraq. Apparently a friend in his platoon is writing a book about some internal management issues. Not too flattering stuff...

    Anyone ever read 'Jarhead'?

    It's a first-person account of a marine who served in the Gulf War.
    A NYT bestseller.
    And an awesome book, go order it!

    are you still blinded by that poster of bush wrapped around your head?

    wake up RWA. I've said it before, it only takes a handful to fuck it up for everybody and this handful of sorry sacks of shit for US soldiers have done it.

    If you'd ever served, you'd know thats all it takes, right GOP jeff?

    You've got what we call a negative attitude, son.

    Dude, come on, go back to your pussy-licking thread.
    This thread is for adults.

    It would be called reality if it were reality. But since it's not reality, we'll call it a "leftist delusion". Does that work for you, Smitty?
