Panties on the Head! The Horror!
HUMAN RIGHTS. We knew it would happen. Those evil American sadists couldn't resist humiliating Saddam with their favorite torture device. Now we'll probably have to let him go. Amnesty International is already plenty steamed.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Leading human rights organization Amnesty International has branded as humiliating the publication of a new photo of Saddam Hussein.
An Iraqi newspaper on Thursday published the picture of the deposed Iraqi president in captivity, and Baghdad residents were hurrying to buy copies, said CNN correspondent Satinder Bindra.
The photo is the first picture of Saddam to be released since his capture...when the U.S.-led coalition showed images and video at a news conference of him being examined.
Those pictures were defended by U.S.
Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld, who said it was clearly important that people knew Saddam was
alive and really had been caught.
Well, if Rumsfeld's not worried about the panties, maybe it'll all
blow over. Sure.
SCANDAL. Decompressing after Torture Talk (June 15 entry), we discovered this picture of Bill Clinton being tortured by a young lady in the White House. The source of this evidence is Shuteye Town 1999, which is just as nastily relevant now as it was when first published. Containing more than 3000 graphics, sound files, and 350,000 words of text, Shuteye Town is a hilarious place through which you can wander for weeks or months. Fortunately, it's still available from our friends at boomerbible.com. You can find out more here.
