Easy on my balls, I'm an American

July 1, 2005

Old news from 6-10-2005:
Nevadan says Marines abused him while jailed in Iraq 3 days

One of his colleagues was slammed to the ground by a guard, he said.

“His head bounced off the asphalt.” Raiche said. “He told me he heard one guard say to another, ‘If he moves, let the dog loose.'”

He said his colleague told him that a guard then reached down and “squeezed his testicles so hard he could barely move.”

When Raiche first arrived at the facility, he said a guard ordered him to the ground and put a knee in his back. He said he heard one Marine say, “How does it feel now making that big contractor money?”

At one point, Raiche said a guard told him to put his head down and look down.

“I said, ‘I’m an American.’ He said, I don’t give an ‘F’ who you are, look down,'” he said.

I don’t know. Just bizzare. American contractors tell of prison abuse in Iraq, but seem more offended that they were Americans being abused than by the abuse itself.

Abusers seem more offended by disparity in salary than by contractors allegedly firing upon U.S. forces. I don’t know. Just bizzare.
