William Luse has a Walker Percy-ish meditation on what it feels like to be accelerating down the slippery slope. Be forewarned: it's gruesome. Multa inter alia, he makes the following point about the Abu Ghraib photos that I haven't seen elsewhere.

Imagine what will happen the next time one is captured. I don't think she'll be subjected to any run-of-the-mill rape.
