More on the prisons...

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., one of the senators allowed to see the additional pictures of U.S. attrocities, has called the images “appalling,” saying that they “go beyond” what much of the world has already seen in photos broadcast and shown to the public. Arianna Huffington's site has some good commentary on recent events along with links to the reports that the government has been given. Personally, I think that far too much is classified in this country. How is a democracy supposed to function when the people are treated like mushrooms (kept in the dark and fed shit)?
