    This report from The Guardian just blows me away. It’s been years since the videos from Abu Ghraib surfaced. But I have never forgotten those scenes – prisoners shackled, stripped, dogs, weapons drawn…2003 and the actions perpetrated under the command of then president GW Bush and his evil VP, Dick Cheney et al, will continue to surface.
