Dogs Authorized Bloody Attacks Guard Sentenced Wrist SlapsWe’ve been at war in Iraq for three years now. So many dead. What horrible stuff will come out later about what we are doing?

Another Abu Ghraib dog handler found guilty of abusing detainees
Another US military dog handler was found guilty Tuesday of abusing detainees at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq by terrifying them with a military dog

Colonel admits to approving use of military dogs on Abu Ghraib
A top Army intelligence commander ( Pappas ) testified Wednesday that he gave his approval on at least one occasion for the use of military dogs during the interrogation

Right. We go to fight terror … but we terrorize. Notice that it is called “breaking someone down” by the higher ups, not terrorizing. The dog handlers were not just “frightening” people with these trained dogs.

“A dog handled by Cardona bit a detainee on both thighs, severely enough to require stitches… ” – FOXNews “It seemed like a lot of blood, sir,” Harman said. – MUZI

Responsibility for this goes at least all the way up to the Generals. We know also that sickos Rumsfeld and Cheney both condone torture.

“According to the officer, Col. Thomas Pappas, the idea came from Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, who at the time commanded the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and was implemented under a policy approved by Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the top U.S. military official in Iraq. ” – WASHPOST

So how much worse is the real story? Do dogs kill and eat some detainees? How about in our secret prisons? In Gitmo? Who would be surprised?
