Abu Ghraib Prison... 

This link offers several videos and pictures. You can view the pictures that occurred in the prison there. It's just really uncomprehensible.

If you viewed the pictures in the link above, you will notice this female soldier in some of the pictures. Her name is Pfc. Lynndie England. She is facing a court-martial for her involvement in the photos.

Her defense is that she was ordered to pose in those pictures...to create some psychological pressure. She won't name names but she has said "persons in my chain of command." So, you know this is gonna be a witch hunt to find those responsible for the treatment of the Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib.

The senators had the opportunity to views other pictures and other such materials behind closed doors. Verdict: they're just simply disgusted with what they have seen. Will those additional pictures be shown to the public? Who knows? Right now, I doubt they will be shown due to fear of backlashes from the world.
