If you think the Abu Ghraib pictures were bad before...

Now it's coming out that we haven't seen anything yet. Check out Hunter at Daily Kos who quotes the Boston Globe:
Signaling the worst revelations are yet to come, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said the additional photos show "acts that can only be described as blatantly sadistic, cruel and inhuman." [...]

The unreleased images show American soldiers beating one prisoner almost to death, apparently raping a female prisoner, acting inappropriately with a dead body, and taping Iraqi guards raping young boys, according to NBC News.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said the scandal is "going to get worse" and warned that the most "disturbing" revelations haven't yet been made public.

"The American public needs to understand, we're talking about rape and murder here," he said. "We're not just talking about giving people a humiliating experience; we're talking about rape and murder and some very serious charges."

One additional disconcerting note--the rest of the world has known this stuff for a year. Absolutely horrifying.

Oh, but don't worry, the administration is trying to keep this hidden from us, too.
