Missing U.S. Soldiers Found Dead, After Being Mutilated

Missing U.S. Soldiers found dead outside of Baghdad, with signs of torture. The soldiers' bodies had been mutilated.

It's ironic that White House officials strongly denounced the torture. Not that it was o.k. for them to be tortured. Of course it wasn't. However, the U.S. basically helped to set the tone for this level of violence and madness. Abu Ghraib is one example of many.

Would it have made a difference either way, no one knows for sure. But the earlier problems surrounding the behavior of the U.S. regarding mistreatment of prisoners, probably has some impact on how U.S. soldiers are treated.
