Flashback: Torture photos depict ‘rape and murder,’ Sen. Graham said in 2004

Abu Ghraib abuse photos 'show rape'

The Pentagon is denying the facts: Photographs of Abu Ghraib torture are even more sexually explicit than first reported, including rape and sodomy, writes The Daily Beast's Scott Horton, who has obtained specific and detailed corroboration of the photos.

The Bush Administration Were The "Few Bad Apples"

As happens virtually always, the facts are now starting to be examined and they reveal just how deliberately false are these right-wing smears. They just make things up without having any idea if they're true.

And the assumption -- from both sides -- that she is some sort of pure, doctrinaire liberal seems quite dubious at best.
