<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Reports of a U.S. “death squad” in Afghanistan, complete with the publication of gory photographs, have failed to attract the intense political or media attention afforded a previous war scandal — the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib.

In 2004, CBS News broadcast an array of photographs showing American jail guards abusing Iraqi detainees. The most famous: a forced pyramid of naked, humiliated prisoners. The depictions touched off an avalanche of media coverage. In Congress, liberals called for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. Democrats launched inquiries and held a string of well-covered hearings.

In recent months, another wartime embarrassment has emerged. The Army charged five soldiers with murder in the deaths of Afghan civilians in what amounted to a “death squad.” The German magazine Der Spiegel published several digital photos of soldiers posing with the dead last month.

Yet the U.S. media have given relatively little coverage, and no one in Congress has called for Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates to quit, planned hearings or raised questions at budget hearings.

Conservatives, while not seeking negative coverage of the armed forces, say it is another example of a blatant double standard. The reason the mainstream media have barely touched the story, conservatives say, is because it happened under President Obama, not George W. Bush. </div></div>

I first posted on it in THIS (http://billiardsdigest.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Board=3&Number=344487&Searchpage=1&Main=32830&Words=death+LWW&topic=0&Search=true#Post344487) where you made a moral equivalency argument that the forcing of Iraqis to wear women's panties on their heads ... meaning that every college fraternity in the USA is guilty of war crimes ... was equivalent to these murders.
