"What's the difference between them and Saddam?" "Americans are now torturing the Iraqi people in the same place Saddam tortured them".
Well, there is a difference.
The difference is that perpetrators will go under trial. The difference is that Western press got the story on the open (2 month after abusers were caught). The difference is that Western governments (include US government) find the story disgusting. The difference is that there is one death case, not mass graves.
The big question, though - if Arab street mind will recognize the difference? Well, we shall see.
