Almost worse than the Iraqi prison scandal itself...

One of my coworkers asked what I thought about "that Iraqi prison stuff." I said I thought it was thoroughly disgraceful that our soldiers were doing that.

His reply was along the lines of: "What's the big deal? Hey, they're prisoners, aren't they? They deserve what they're getting. Look what they did to those two contractors they killed and mutilated. Etc."

I'm very much afraid that his opinion is shared by far too many other Americans.

I grieve for my country....
