I don't see the point of publishing the photos at all. they prove that Saddam wears ugly underwear.
This is a crime that many of us have committed.
The fact that his expectation of reasonable privacy in his cell has been violated, while correct, is pretty small potatoes.
Since this guy is guilty much more serious offences, I think the world should be addressing those things.
Release of these photos is just stupid, whoever arranged it.
Noone is better informed by them, pro or con.
Except that the availablilty of them seems to show that information control at the prison isn't as tight as it should be.
Though I am no fan of the war, this kind of thing cheapens the sacrifices of Saddam's victims, the loses innocent victims of our bombing, and the sacrifices of our troops.
But at least Murdoch sold more papers, and some bonehead made some chump change.
