The pictures that the London Sun and the New York Post and others published today showing Saddam Hussein in his briefs are (rightly) causing an uproar in the world community.

It pisses me off that our military members (probably) took the pictures, even casually, and supplied them to the Sun. Haven't we learned yet? And if it came from elsewhere (I hope), then my apologies.

It pisses me off even more that rags like the Sun and Post would publish them.

When did news always try to hurt people. Don't those papers know that doing this will cause needless deaths? Alledgedly, both papers have conservative slants, but apparently, it's all about the Elizabeths for the folks at the Sun

It's very frustrating.

I understand the fear of the worst in this...but I'm going to hope that the reason for the photos might be something as simple as documenting his care or a medical appointment.

i.e. having photographic proof that we're NOT abusing him.

Hopefully this blows over relatively quickly...

I thought they were photoshopped. I remember him being a bit heavier.

Either way, NBF is right, is this really NEWS?

Considering how it could be seen as a huge violation of Geneva, yeah it is news.

I thought he was under Iraqi custody, even if we are the guards?
