09/29/2005 Archived Entry: "No felony charges for corpse pictures"

THE PENTAGON SAYS there's not enough evidence to bring charges against soldiers who sent pictures of mutilated Iraqi war dead for posting on the Internet. But that they might still punish soldiers for misusing military computers to send those photos. HUH?

Talk about overkill -- They're also considering barring all soldiers from using either personal cameras or computers while in a war zone. Now, wouldn't the Bush administration, with its fetish for secrecy and its desire to depict war in terms only of ribbons, banners, and vague patriotic "sacrifice," love that?

(This from Rational Review News -- with additional thanks to Mary Lou Seymour for her generous heart. RRN is in the midst of a fund drive right now and also has a very good deal on ad sales. So if you can help or are looking for a great place to advertise your product to freedom lovers, go on over.)
