UK Paper Publishes Photo of Saddam in Tighty-Whiteys
US military command in Iraq has already issued a press release condemning the release of the photo:
WASHINGTON, May 20, 2005 Military officials in Iraq have condemned the release of photos taken of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in prison that appeared today in a British tabloid and have been widely circulated on the Internet.Meanwhile, thousands of Saddam's victims remain to be found in mass graves all over Iraq. Pardon me if I can't work up any sympathy for this monster. If military discipline was compromised in the release of the photo, those responsible should be charged accordingly.
"These photos were taken in clear violation of DoD directives and possibly Geneva Convention guidelines for the humane treatment of detained individuals," a Multinational Force Iraq official said in a statement.
