Girls Gone Wild: Baghdad!

You know, my attitude toward the military is changing.

Apparently, the time to join is now.

It's a party over there!

"Army red-faced over new prison antics - Startling pictures of wild Iraq party"

From the NY Daily News:
Female soldiers stripped to their skivvies for a mud-wrestling bout, and sergeants allegedly were lending their rooms to G.I.s for sex last year at the Army's Camp Bucca prison in Iraq.
Spring break!
Photos of a wild Oct. 30 party at the camp show women soldiers baring their breasts to male onlookers, and other female G.I.s clad only in bras and panties wrestling and cavorting in a mud-filled plastic pool as men cheer, leer and snap pictures.
Havasu!
The episode, which experts called a serious breakdown of military discipline, prompted a probe in Iraq and still is under investigation by stateside military authorities.
Cabo!
A series of 30 photos of the goings-on were leaked to the Daily News recently.
They have not shown up on Ebay. Yet.
The soldiers involved had been assigned to guard Iraqi prisoners being transferred to Camp Bucca from the scandal-scarred Abu Ghraib prison.
Out of the frying pan and into a smaller one.
A commander's inquiry was conducted at Camp Bucca but a report was not filed until Dec. 8 - nearly six weeks after the incident and more than a month after most of the soldiers involved had returned to the U.S.

The more serious allegations - that various sergeants had organized the party, lent their rooms to soldiers for sex and were seen "noticeably drunk" during the episode - are being investigated by military authorities in the U.S.

"Soldiers have access to nonalcoholic beer, but alcohol is strictly prohibited under General Order 1," Johnson said.
Non-alcoholic beer. Right.

I'm sure he said that with a straight face, too.
"There is no evidence that alcohol was involved."
Except for the above mentioned behavior.

One soldier featured in the photos, Deanna Allen, has been demoted for "flashing." Her grandmother has come to her defense.
Photos of the 19-year-old military policewoman smiling and baring her breasts for leering male soldiers are the centerpiece of a series of scandalous snapshots taken during a mud-wrestling sexcapade at the camp in Umm Qasr.

Allen "is very patriotic and 100% American," Tomlin said. "She was a leader and she had tremendous potential but she wants to fit in so much she doesn't always use as much discretion as she should."

"She is a very beautiful young woman," the grandmother said, "and she is built like the proverbial ... well, you know. She gets a lot of male attention."
Come again, grandma?
"It's a shame," Tomlin said. "You take away the guys and the booze and she'd take on Saddam Hussein himself."
And that...is the quote of the week.

More later...
