The War
US turned blind eye to torture
Leaked documents on Iraq war contain thousands of allegations of abuse, but a Pentagon order told troops to ignore them.

at some point in the future, one would think that the World Court and/or the UN would have to look at these charges.

Why! It is doubtful that either of these bodies have any jurisdication in the United States. The Americans will be the judge and jury in this matter, if need be, not outsiders.

And just what authority do these two organizations possess after they look?

Since the alleged torture was committed by Iraqi forces, the US quickly dropped the case: "Due to no allegation or evidence of US involvement, a US investigation is not being initiated," the report said.


Oh well, sh*t happens :D

There you go, Weasel out again. Pretend that you have the brains to figure something out on your own. You sound just like Fox News to me. What I was saying was Al Jazeera is just as credible as Fox News, perhaps more so as somtimes they do present some news.

I am not defending Al Jazeera, I am saying that Fox News is just as biased. You said the photo "probably comes from Al Jazeera" While I dislike Al Jazeera, can we condemn them for this photo if we do not know.
