Attorneys for Lynndie England,

a U.S. soldier charged with abusing Iraqi inmates at a Baghdad prison,

asked on Wednesday to have her early statements to investigators

and photos of her with naked prisoners

thrown out as evidence in her court-martial.

 

Photographs of England holding a naked prisoner on a leash

and pointing to the genitals of another inmate

at Abu Ghraib prison shocked the world

and damaged the Bush administration's efforts in Iraq

when they surfaced publicly in April.

Debate on the Iraq crisis

in the house of Commons

 

 

"There are glib

and sometimes

foolish comparisons

with the 1930s.

 

No one here

is an appeaser.

 

But the only relevant

point of analogy

is that with history,

we know what happened.

 

We can look back

and say:

there's the time;

that was the moment;

for example,

when Czechoslovakia

was swallowed up

by the Nazis

- that's when

we should have acted."
