Part 2: No Photos Please!

Military officials said Saturday that they are investigating whether U.S. soldiers have posted grisly pictures of war dead on Christopher Wilson's site.

Viewing or downloading pornography on military computer systems is against regulations and could result in non-judicial charges against any soldiers involved, said Lt. Col. John Robinson, a public-affairs officer at the Pentagon. Robinson says non-judicial charges do not involve courts-martial. Instead, commanding officers can dispense discipline, such as garnishing wages, reducing rank, ordering extra duty or even handing out jail time.

"It's much more serious that individuals would find benefit in exchanging pictures of gore from the field of battle," Robinson said. "It causes concern. . . . We don't want to lose the mind-set of the severity of what's happening there [Iraq]."

Lt. Col Robinson should respectfully remind Commander in Chief, George Bush and his administration of that fact. "...We don't want to lose the mind-set of the severity of what's happening there [Iraq]."
