    Take a look at the MSNBC story here. MSNBC/Newsweek tracked down what some of those pictured were charged with. (Remember they were only charged, not convicted of anything).  

    These guys weren't terrorists, insurgents or high value prisoners.  At worst they were just common thugs.  They were charged with assualt or car jacking.  Keeping in mind it is quite common for Iraqis to turn someone in for reward money or for revenge it's quite possible these people did absolutely nothing wrong.

    All this fever over the torture and they victims were (at worst) common criminals.  Not that torturing someone is ever right but this makes it so much more wrong.
