Andrew Sullivan has been getting a bit livid lately. Here he is yesterday:
Here they are – absolutely horrifying beyond belief. My heart goes out to his family. We will now see what the mainstream media is made of. You think we will see “slideshows” of this?
I can see why he is indignant, it seems strange that the media won’t show the pictures or video, due to audience ‘sensitivity’. And yet the crimes against Iraqi prisoners, while not as horrific, are show more or less unedited.
The full video is making the rounds on Kazaa, Sullivan links to an edited version. I am linking to the full version of the video, and warning people of the obvious graphic nature of it.
This is not about sensationalising, merely about allowing people to decide for themselves. If you do want to see it, click the links, if you do not, don’t.
For my part I watched it once and will not do so again.
