THIS is torture

Roger Simon has a scoop on real torture video and photographs from Abu Ghraib about to be released. (Hat tip: Instapundit) According to Roger, "These are all acts performed by Saddam's soldiers and police in uniform."

According to Roger's source, the photographs show Kurds being castrated and the videos portay the following:

"Two beheadings, during one of which "Happy Birthday, Saddam" is being sung in Arabic."

"ingers being cut off one by one from a hand tied to a board."

"People being thrown off four-story buildings, one forced to wear a Superman costume."

"A man scourged ninety-nine times."

"Three different instances of gas poisonings (probably employing different types), including dead babies."

Roger comments, "I also would like to know what Senator Kennedy has to say about the moral equivalence of our actions after watching these tapes. And finally, I would like to know why it took so long for these to come out."

It is likely we seized similar evidence during the invasion of Iraq and have analyzed it to determine which Baath party members should be detained. There were valid security reasons for the US not rush out and release the evidence.

But now these horrific images must be shown to the world. The War on Terror is as much a battle of ideas as it is an actual military engagement. Saddam's evil legacy is a part of this debate, and anyone who wants to apologize for or revise the history of his regime needs to take a good hard look at this evidence when it is made public.
