NYT: Even more prisoner abuses in Iraq

I'm sure the Washington Post will find some way to blame this on Iran.

From the NYT

As the Iraqi insurgency intensified in early 2004, an elite Special Operations forces unit converted one of Saddam Hussein's former military bases near Baghdad into a top-secret detention center. There, American soldiers made one of the former Iraqi government's torture chambers into their own interrogation cell. They named it the Black Room.
And how cute is that? We took one of Saddam's torture chambers and made it our own. That's because we're better than Saddam. We take his torture, and we make it freedom's torture, like freedom fries. Totally different thing. Just change the name.

God I'm proud of our 3 years in Iraq. Makes fighting the Soviet Union for 70 years almost irrelevant, considering how quickly we're becoming them, and under a Republican president no less.
