From Cox and Forkum:

Reuters: U.S. Abuse of Iraqi Prisoners Inflame Arabs.

“The liberators are worse than the dictators” … “That really, really is the worst atrocity” … Arab satellite televisions, seen by millions of Arabs and Muslims, began their news bulletins with the pictures, which they said showed the “savagery” of U.S. troops. … “Americans are racists and cowards, that’s what I understood from these pictures.”

The article mentions the following only in passing:

The U.S. military has brought criminal charges against six soldiers relating to accusations of abuses from November and December 2003 on some 20 detainees, including indecent acts with another person, maltreatment, battery, dereliction of duty and aggravated assault.

After the Fallajah ambush and mutilations, or after the suicide bombings in Basra, or after the gunning down of four Israeli children and their pregnant mother, did anyone hear the ‘Arab street’ declare criminal charges should be — much less would be — brought against anybody?
