Salon story that corrects the New York Times on the identity of the Abu Ghraib "Hooded Guy in Poncho with Wires On His Fingers" guy

You don't need to click thru and watch the ad, because the only reason I mention it is this quote:

"He [Qaissi] believes that there are two different people depicted in the photographs," said Jonathan Pyle, of Burke Pyle LLC. "Ali believes that the picture of himself is the one with his arms pointed diagonally down." Qaissi uses this photograph on his business card.

Leaving aside my disgust globally with the fact that our government holds people indefinitely, without charges or legal councel, what the hell is going on that this guy thinks it's a good idea to put a picture of himself being abused by Americans on his business card?

In a perfect world, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and the whole lot of them should be put in a prison and piled up naked on national TV with a bunch of women in fatigues jeering at them. Every night for the rest of their lives.
