Now called “Doing it doggy-style”

From the Daily Telegraph:

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.

Detail of the content emerged from Major General Antonio Taguba, the former army officer who conducted an inquiry into the Abu Ghraib jail in Iraq. Allegations of rape and abuse were included in his 2004 report but the fact there were photographs was never revealed. He has now confirmed their existence in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.

I noticed over at Memeorandum that there is radio silence on the story from the war cheerleaders and torture aficionados:


Obviously this a delicate matter that will require real finesse when the time comes to explain it away but I’m confident that a crack team of Republican Euphemism Wordsmiths (cough*MichaelGerson*cough) are working overtime to create the proper, um, nomenclature for the Special Ed, the Powerline Stooges, and the Jammie Wearing Gateway Confederate Yankee RS McCain RedState Strike Force blog ninjas.

So, in the meantime and in the spirit of comity, I would suggest "Enhanced Hooking Up Techniques", "Exxxtreme Dating", or "Saturday Night At Dennis Prager’s House".

I’m like the most helpful person ever…
