there are a lot of things done that aren't exactly legal by anyones standards. but they're kept underwraps because of it. it makes people feel warm and fuzzy inside and justifies what we do if it's legal, but it can't all happen that way.

What are you trying to say? Putting bags on heads is a war crime?, illuminating a prisoners face with a weapons mounted light so a photo can be taken is illegal?, Holding a prisoner down/securing them while being searched rates a NCIS INVESTIGATION?

Whats being kept under wraps?

I didn't say putting bags on their heads is a war crime. But some of the photos can be percieved in a negative light to an audience that is already sensative to soldiers abusing prisoners.

I understand the photos of them handcuffed/tied up with bags on their heads, they are just being secured. But there was one photo of a soldier sitting on a tied up prisoner that can be misinterpreted.

The current enemy would make a photo of a Solider giving a Hershey Bar to a kid a war crime. Or a Medic treating a wounded insurgent an act of aggression.

The enemy and the media will put a negitive spin on anything they can right now. Because people are buying their line of............you know what.
