US abuse of Afghan prisoners 'widespread'

When the fuck are people going to stop buying that "few bad apples" crap about the treatment of US prisoners in the War on Terror? Abu Ghraib, Guantanmo Bay, now Afghanistan and wherever Saddam is being held. If you can't see by now that we don't treat these prisoners very well and that it isn't some kind of isolated thing, then you're not very bright. And please spare me the "these people don't deseve to be treated well" argument. Because the other side can make the same argument when they want to mistreat our guys. And also spare me the "well, they already do it to our guys, ever hear of Nick Berg?" argument because in case you forgot, we're supposed to be the good guys. We're supposed to be better than they are. Anyway, this is just entirely fucking unacceptable to keep hearing this crap. Hell, even these people do deserve to be treated like this, it would be a bad idea just because of how it makes us look to the rest of the world. Assholes.
