US protests British tabloid's photos of captive Saddam
Globe and Mail - 3 hours ago
London — The US military condemned on Friday the publication of photographs showing Saddam Hussein in his prison cell, including of him only his underwear. Friday's publication in Britain's mass circulation ...
These photos seem to me to be a rather clear violation of the Geneva convention. Horrid that they were taken and worse that they were published. Even as we all know that Saddam is guilty of mass murder and should be put to death.

I totally dont give a shit that Saddam was photographed in his undies.
