News from Oz

The Sydney Morning Herald has published 15 of 60 photos taken inside Abu Ghraib prison that the US is fighting to keep secret. The slideshow is just fucking awful, so don't click through if you're eating anything.

Christ. This was done in my name, with my tax money. And probably yours, too. Unless you're one of our international readers.

I don't have anything funny or cute to say about this topic--it's simply not possible for me to be sarcastic about this article or slideshow. I would, however, encourage you to remember that this is exactly the sort of thing that the President says he has the power to authorize. I, for one, do not agree.
