Outrage Over Abu Ghraib Sentencing!!
The sentencing for the female soldier involved in the Abu Ghraib scandal was handed down yesterday. As the article points out, there are many people who are upset with the 3 year sentence. Though her actions were repulsive, consider what happens to American prisoners in Iraq. I guess that according to some, humiliation and decapitation are on about the same level. The coverage that this story received was vastly overblown when you consider the coverage that Americans receive when they are tortured and killed. If these actions were against an American, it would probably be out of the news in a day or so whereas this story stayed around for months. It is amazing to me the amount of people in the US that enjoy hearing how terrible Americans are .
