Default Let The Rioting Begin...

See http://starbulletin.com/2006/09/13/news/story02.html

So, lemme see...

A photo of an Iraqi POW in a dog collar and leash (while not professional or appropriate) results in worldwide outcry and massive condemnation from sources internal and external.

However, professionally-produced videos of US combatants being attacked / killed / maimed being hosted on a US-owned website generates ... nothing.

The hosting of these videos is at best distasteful and at worst seditious. And don't trot out the tired "first amendment" crap. Our armed forces are due the duty of protection from this sort of exploitation.

So, where's the condemnation of these videos? Should we start rioting and burning stuff (starting at YouTube)? Apparently Abu Gharib photos were ample and legitimate justification and acceptable excuse for all manner of bad behavior elsewhere.
