US Army probes nude GI Janes

Porn is one thing, but corpses...

The US Army has launched an investigation into now that's fucked up, the "online trading post for amateur porn and grotesque gore pics from the front lines of freedom in Iraq", as we described it earlier this week.

The website offers one open forum of explicit sexual images, mostly demonstrating what GI Jane gets up to in Iraq when she's not bringing democracy to that fragrant land astride the Tigris. To see more, you must post either amateur porn or explicit gore and it's evident that there's more than enough of both to go round in Iraq and Afghanistan at the moment.

It's not, though, the sight of military gals sucking on a big one for Uncle Sam which has provoked the inevitable Islamic backlash, but rather the unpleasant snaps of dead bodies subjected to various degrees of dismemberment.

Arsalan Iftikhar, legal top dog at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has written to Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld, expressing his dismay thus: "This disgusting trade in human misery is an insult to all those who have served in our nation's military."

In response, the Pentagon said it is looking into the matter, with Rumsfeld spokesman Bryan Whitman confirming: "Obviously, it is an unacceptable practice."

The Army's Criminal Investigation Division has already started a probe. A spokesman said that a preliminary exploration had determined that felony charges could not be pursued, but the powers that be were looking into possible disciplinary action against those contributing warnography to "now that's fucked up". ®
