Well, I don't know if he's got cable TV and all that...after all, he is in an Iraqi prison, not a US prison.
What bothers me as much as anything is the fact that the US media seems to just get giddy whenever they can get a story that makes the US in general or the US Military specifically look bad. Look at the whole Newsweek fiasco with the story about the Quaran at Gitmo. They retracted it because they didn't bother to verify their source and published the story anyway (only to have the source retract), but not until after there were riots and DEATHS over this story. Now this. Splashed on the front page. At least what I heard when it was released was that they didn't even know if it was a US Serviceman or woman who took the picture and thus violated the Geneva Convention. If it was, he or she should be court marshalled, no doubt. I'm certainly not saying that this was right, nor am I saying that the press should be censored, but gosh do they take pleasure in making their own country look like fools, and worse yet inciting those who already hate us to hate us even more, even if the story isn't quite verifiable or even true.
