BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqi police found 38 tortured bodies and witnessed the slow release of five hostages amidst general violence throughout Baghdad Thursday.
Iraqi police recovered the 38 bodies showing signs of torture in the capital city during a 24-hour period ending Thursday morning.
I honestly don't know how Tony Snow can live with himself. His smug, smarmy BS is over the line. With regard to the stem cell veto, he actually said: "The simple answer is he thinks murder's wrong, The president is not going to get on the slippery slope of taking something living and making it dead for the purposes of scientific research."
So a blastocyst
(that is headed for a trash bin anyway) is more important to the President than 3,000 of our servicemen and countless Iraqi civilians AND "scientific research" does not rate as an excuse to "take something living and make it dead" but idiotic vanity wars are just peachy.Rage Against the Right adds: More than 14,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq in the first half of this year, an ominous figure reflecting the fact that "killings, kidnappings and torture remain widespread" in the war-torn country, a United Nations report says.
Killings of civilians are on "an upward trend," with more than 5,800 deaths and more than 5,700 injuries reported in May and June alone, it says."
