Corpse for Porn - Investigation

Finally, the US army is investigating the pictures of dead Iraqis on the web. I described the corpse-for-porn site on August 23; it was aggregated on Jordan Planet and mentioned on ‘Aquol about the same time; the latter if I remember this right also had links to the blogger who first put up an alert. Andrew Sullivan became (to my knowledge) the first power blogger to pick it up on September 18; and since he has some 40k+ visitors every day I guess it is ok when he now says “this blog broke the story…” After his first entry, quite a few bloggers posted replies, saying it is old news. Sort of, yes, but it is now the real story begins: Who put up the pictures? Is it a breach of the Geneva Convention? Punishment? Discharge? Watch this space.
