    Ah, the world of lawyers ...

    Favourite bits ...
    A lawyer for Charles Graner, accused ringleader in the Iraq prisoner abuse scandal, on Monday compared piling naked prisoners into pyramids to cheerleader shows and said leashing inmates was also acceptable prisoner control.

    "Don't cheerleaders all over America form pyramids six to eight times a year. Is that torture?" Guy Womack, Graner's attorney, said in opening arguments to the 10-member U.S. military jury at the reservist sergeant's court-martial.
    Six to eight times a year! Ha ha ha. Not usually naked though, except ... well, never mind.

    Also ...

    The prosecution showed some of those pictures ... including several of naked Iraqi men piled on each other and another of England holding a crawling naked Iraqi man on a leash.

    Womack said using a tether was a valid method of controlling detainees, especially those who might be soiled with feces.

    "You're keeping control of them. A tether is a valid control to be used in corrections," he said. "In Texas we'd lasso them and drag them out of there." He compared the leash to parents who place tethers on their toddlers while walking in shopping malls.
    Shopping malls in Texas must full of mothers leading their naked children round on all fours using leashes. What a place it must be.
