Called it

Photographs of alleged prisoner abuse which Barack Obama is attempting to censor include images of apparent rape and sexual abuse, it has emerged.

At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee.

Further photographs are said to depict sexual assaults on prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube.

Another apparently shows a female prisoner having her clothing forcibly removed to expose her breasts.

This changes nothing -- Obama should reverse his decision, release the pictures, and then the perpetrators should suffer the consequences. You only support the troops worth supporting.

Otherwise, we should all basically just concede that the US Army is an institution with as little credibility as, say, the Catholic Church.
