Conceptual live installation shocked our human fellows!
Couple of American artists show how bad Saddam Hussein's prisons were. "The graphic images include one of a hooded and naked prisoner standing on a box with wires attached to his genitals. [...] The prisoner was told that if he fell off the box, he would be electrocuted. Another shows naked prisoners being forced to simulate sex acts. In another, a female soldier, with a cigarette in her mouth, simulates holding a gun and pointing at a naked Iraqi's genitals."
Yet experts have different opinion. "I don't think you can compare the two. Saddam Hussein's prisoners were not only tortured but executed. It was much worse than what is there now", says Adnan Al-Pachachi, a member of the Iraqi Governing Council.
A spokesman for British Prime Minister Tony Blair [who is upset with the execution failure] said he was "appalled" and described the incident as regrettable. "Nobody underestimates how wrong this is".
But the amateur American art-worriers claim that "We had no support, no training whatsoever. And I kept asking my chain of command for certain things... like rules and regulations," he told CBS. "It just wasn't happening." He said he did not see a copy of the Geneva Convention rules for handling prisoners of war until after he was charged.
[Knowing that the piece is not ready for the opening yet] "CBS's flagship 60 Minutes programme said it had been pressured by the Pentagon not to show the images, until the photos started circulating elsewhere".
