I have been a supporter of the Iraq War -- but this is simply disgusting: Allegations of Abuse Lead to Shakeup at Iraqi Prison. Apparently this story broke on Wednesday on CBS News -- which I didn't watch. Here's another very disturbing article, to be published in tomorrow's NY Times. If one of the points of the Iraq War was to stop the human rights abuses under Saddam Hussein, what the hell are we doing there now? Why not just let him out of jail and let him run the whole show again? I'm disgusted.

Thanks to Gary Farber for waking me up to this.
