Saddam Half-Naked Photos

Saddam in underpantsAll the talk today is about the photos of Saddam half-naked in only his underpants doing his washing in a prison cell.

The photos were published in the UK tabloid newspaper The Sun and then carried by the NY Post in the US.

The Sun is pointing to the US Military for a conspired release of the photos to humilate the Iraqi Insurgency. The US Military is denying it played an organized role in the release of the photos, saying it is aggressively investigating who leaked the photos.

I think this is disgusting and very low.
This kind of humiliation and degradation is unacceptable and illegal under Geneva Convention rules no matter who the person is and how many bad things he’s done.
The people behind this should be held accountable for their actions.

  1. Dude, these pictures are not only no way to be treating a prisoner, but will only increase the already high hostility the US has in the Middle East. I see these pictures making things a lot worse.

  2. I agree Jenn. These pics aren’t just degrading or humiliating for Saddam, they’ll also worsen the image of the US even more.

    Plus, with the whole desecrating of the Koran story still fresh, this is a very bad timing for this.
    It’ll only worsen things.

  3. So desperately to end the Koran in the toilet conversation, the US now virulently defends Saddam’s right to privacy. What a world!
    So, let’s look back a bit..
    The US authorities’ decision to release photographs of the bodies of Saddam’s sons Uday and Qusay Hussein was not shocking, but Saddam in underpants shocked Bush!!
    However, the desecration of the Koran in Guantanamo bay that’s not that important and US has doubts about it, and blamed Newsweek on the consequences of their article, but read this:

    Documents Indicate Soldiers Used Religious Icons to Degrade Muslim Detainees, ACLU Says.

    (and this time with documents!)

  4. i find that he’s in good shape for his age…
    it also shows that he s not badly treated and finally that being in jail is better for him than being hidden in Tikrit.

  6. Bush administration is responsible for the release of the photos.It has tp borne in mind that this guy(bush) has injured the international law bu going into war without UN consent, then he is killing alot of innocent people now in iraq. Now they had injured again the international law since saddam though according to them is a tyrant but he is being protected by international instruments such as Geneva convention. on this , Bush and his fellowers should also be held liable for that, but the very interestin question is who will held them liable for the gravely humiliation? they will end jailing the soldiers 2 or 3 months jus like that woman who humiliated prisoners in ab gharib this is not fair and increase the hostility between the Arabs world and Americans. GOD WILL PAY FOR THAT BECAUSE NO ONE CAN POINT AGAINST YOU(BUSH)
