Lynndie England: Media killed thousands by publishing pics of me torturing prisoners

Remember Lynndie England of Abu Ghraib prisoner torture scandal fame? Well, she’s back and more fucked up than ever.

Seems England gave an interview to the German weekly news magazine Stern earlier this week. USA Today reports on the interview here.

I truly wish the title of this entry were an exaggeration. It isn’t.

According to Lynndie, the problem isn’t what happened at Abu Ghraib. That kinda shit happens in war all the time behind the scenes. The problem, Lynndie says, is that media reported it. That act enraged the insurgents and cost thousands of lives:

“I guess after the picture came out the insurgency picked up and Iraqis attacked the Americans and the British and they attacked in return and they were just killing each other. I felt bad about it … no, I felt pissed off. If the media hadn’t exposed the pictures to that extent, then thousands of lives would have been saved,” she was quoted as saying.

Asked how she could blame the media for the controversy, she said it wasn’t her who leaked the photos.

England, now free after serving half of a thirty-six month sentence imposed by a court martial, is “living with her parents in Fort Ashby, W.Va., along with her son, Carter, whose father is Charles Graner Jr., the reputed ringleader of those who took the pictures.” With any luck, the local child protective services agency will catch wind of Lynndie’s recent comments and take action in the best interest of the child. The boy doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of growing up even marginally human as matters currently stand.

    Lynndie England tortured insurgents? Wow , that’s what genghishitler’s sniggering headline suggests. Of course, no one has to know that Lynndie was not even quoted in the headline. Truth is, Lynndie never laid a hand on any of the dead-enders (that’s what we call terrorists). No, all she did was pose for some quick shots. Heck, she’s a private in the Army you moron. Privates do exactly what they are told. Brainwashed idiots, those of you who rant and rave about how England tortured those poor, peaceful indigents. HA…! Your lack of knowledge of the events is pitiful and so is your miserable handle.
