Former Abu Ghraib Prisoners Paid $5.28 Million for Naked Pyramid & Other Tricks


Abut Ghraib prisoners were awarded millions for naked pyramid and other tricks… Or, as the left would call it, the worst torture in the history of mankind.

Former Abu Ghraib prisoners were awarded $5.28 million for the treatment they received at Abu Ghraib.
The Army Times reported, via Bad Blue:

A defense contractor whose subsidiary was accused in a lawsuit of conspiring to torture detainees at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison has paid $5.28 million to former prisoners held there and at other U.S.-run detention sites in Iraq during the war.

The settlement on behalf of 71 former inmates marks the first successful effort by lawyers for former inmates at Abu Ghraib and other detention centers to collect money from a U.S. defense contractor in lawsuits alleging torture. Another contractor, CACI, is expected to go to trial over similar allegations this summer.

Defense contractor Engility Holdings Inc. of Chantilly, Va., disclosed the payment in a document it filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission two months ago.

The defendant in the lawsuit, L-3 Services Inc., now an Engility subsidiary, provided translators to the U.S. military in Iraq. In 2006, L-3 Services had more than 6,000 translators in Iraq under a $450 million-a-year contract, an L-3 executive told an investors conference at the time.

On Tuesday, Baher Azmy, a lawyer for the ex-detainees, said that each of the Iraqis received a portion of the settlement. Azmy declined to say how the money was distributed among them. He said there was an agreement to keep details of the settlement confidential.

    Dang….could the Army torture me some…I need money now that Obama has taken mine.

    How much did Lyndie England, the willing leftist tool and lover-of-S&M-sex who specifically requested to be stationed at a military prison so she could simultaneously act out her sexual AND political fantasies, get for staging the whole thing and taking the 9,000 pictures in the 45-minute event that the NYT put on their front page for three months, with a different picture each day?

    I’d like to know where she and her C.O. are now, and how fat their wallets are.

  • JDR-Taq

    That’s England and her C.O. at the top of the picture, by the way. One of thousands that she “leaked” to the NYT.

  • JDR-Taq

    I wonder if Obama will be sued for all the children he’s had killed with drones.

    I wonder if the Anti-War movement will ever make a comeback under Obama.

    I wonder if pigs will fly, under power from their own flatulence.

  • JDR-Taq

    I wonder where the f*&k is Saint Cindy Sheehan today?

    Guess what folks? Leftists are allowed to join the U.S. military! Once inside, they do what Leftists do! Like make the Booooooooosh military look evil by taking a thousand or so photos inside an hour of panties on Jihadi’s heads or fake electric cables attached to nipples, or, GOD FORBID, semi-naked pyramids, with their male Muslim heads covered like women, to boot!

    One hour. A thousand photos. A sick leftist twat and her sick leftist twat C.O., and a camera.

    The world got a photo-a-day from the New York Times, on the front page, for 2 1/2 months.

    One hour. Two conniving Leftists and a complicit, Bush-hating press that to this day has yet to even BEGIN to excoriate Obama for 3,000+ deaths in F&F, nor for the hundreds of children killed by AUTONOMOUS drones in his 4 new wars.

    The press is pretty damn powerful.

  • Joe Blow

    My guess is they were all excited to participate knowing how many participate in forbidden activities in the dark.

  • JDR-Taq

    Jesus Christ.

    People are so incredibly naive.

    Deepwater Horizon. Aurora, CO. The Execution of SEAL Team Six. Abu Ghraib. Hilary’s recent concussion. Gabby Giffords. The Kentucky Census worker’s “frame the right” suicide.

    Sandy Hook. And the thousand holes in the story. And the Incurious Press to Beat All Incurious Presses.

    So god-damned naive. SO freakin UNBELIEVABLY DENSE.

    It’s almost as if the media saturation of the 9/11 and Michael Moore “truther” theories, and the conspicuousness of other “out there” conspiracy theories (Kennedy, moon landing hoax, chupacabra, aliens and UFOs, etc.) have numbed people to it. They’re tired of it.

    And now the Left, having beat the “conspiracy” horse to death and then some — I mean into the ground, like classic rock stations have done to Hotel California — can do anything it wants, and people will not question the narrative, because they’re TIRED of conspiracies, and wish to quit thinking that there might actually BE conspiracies at all.

    Whatevs.

    How much did Lyndie England … get

    From what I’ve read, 3 years.

  • JDR-Taq

    Yes, shadow, I know that.

    What else?

    She did her duty to her bosses — of that I am sure.

  • JDR-Taq

    What I’m saying, shadow:

    I’m betting she’s living LARGE. For her service to the crown, so to speak.

    She’s been out for quite a few years, if she even served any time at all.

  • JDR-Taq

    Ibiza. Driving a Beemer and a Lambo. Torturing willing Euro Masochists at her Mediterranean villa.

    On our dime.

  • JDR-Taq

    Do I know how to kill a thread, or what?

    !!!

    OK, back to Borderlands 2.

  • shadow

    Ummm … no. England was a short boyish-looking brunette. The girl in that picture is Sabrina Harman. And the CO was a female. The person in the picture Charles Graner, England’s supposed fiancee, at the time.

    If you don’t even know the basics, why would anyone believe your more fanciful recounting of events?

  • shadow

    I wonder where the f*&k is Saint Cindy Sheehan today?
    Physically, I couldn’t tell you. But she was Rosanne Barr’s running-mate during the last election, at least on the ballot in FL.

  • Not Likely

    People at Abu Ghraib were tortured to death. Murdered. And yet you so-called “pro-lifers” laugh it off. Gird yourselves for judgement.

    “the worst torture in the history of mankind”

    So cute that the Right thinks there are degrees of torture! A little torture of innocent people is oay with Jim. One wonders where he draws the line….oh, yeah, whenever a Democrat is office

    #21 – What a moronic post.

    Last time I read the bible, I didn’t see the 11th commandment saying – thou shalt not laugh at something someone else has done.

    Furthmore, to turn your idiotic phrase – if we are pro-lfe, then lefties like yourself are pro-death (abortion). Except when it comes to murderous freaks killing others – where you freaks are pro-life.

    Being pro-life for an innocent, womb growing child, whom never harmed anyone, and pro death penalty for those willing/convicted of heinous murder of others. Versus being pro-life for a twisted, murdering adult thug fully aware of their actions, and pro-death for an innocent growing unborn baby? Many of us on the right are comfortable with that belief/justice system in good vs evil. We are “girded for judgement” not to mention grounded in rationality. While your side espouses logic only satan would be proud of.

    We’ll see how judgement weighs out in the end.

  • feduptoo

    Can we sue them too, for being so idiotic that now our money has been given away to these people?

    I am so fedup with lawyer’s and their lawsuits, the leftist judges…results in more of our money giving to the enemy!

    We ought to be able to counteract someway!

    The helpful idiots of the left always suffer in the end.

    I think she is wrong and a bit stupid, but at least Sheehan is a true believer and I can respect that.

    Wasn’t Lynndie found to be below average IQ? I thought her CO and the guys around her actually used her and not the other way around.

  • shadow

    She’s been out for quite a few years, if she even served any time at all.
    But England, who served almost two years in a military prison, said she has lost sleep over whether the uproar concerning the released Abu Ghraib abuse photos cost the lives of fellow American troops

    I’m betting she’s living LARGE. For her service to the crown, so to speak.
    Yeah. It sounds like she has got it made in the shade.
    Now 29, England is “virtually unemployable” and living in her parents’ rural West Virginia home, where she is raising her 7-year-old son on her own, the Daily report said. The child’s father, Graner, “didn’t want anything to do with the baby,” England told Nestel, despite, she said, a 2009 paternity test proving the child is his.

    Noting that her applications to McDonald’s and Burger King have been rejected, England surmised: “It’s the felony they can’t get past.”

    She also, unsurprisingly, is finding it hard to date, telling Nestel: “It’s gone on eight years now since I left Iraq, since I’ve really been out with a guy.”
