Oh, the power of Google!

Boing Boing, a directory of wonderful things, offers a story of how AP, by using Google, found more photos of prisoner abuse in Iraq.

"An Associated Press reporter found more than 40 of the pictures among hundreds in an album posted on a commercial photo-sharing Web site by a woman who said her husband brought them from Iraq after his tour of duty. It is unclear who took the pictures, which the Navy said it was investigating after the AP furnished copies to get comment for this story."

Well, it looks like Google may be the deciding factor in winning the hearts and minds of the American people.

Go Googling for more pictures of Nick Berg, corpses Fallujah bridge, and the sort. It's newsworthy if we have new images of American military holding a gun to an insurgents head, but images of American civilians being mutilated does not seem to be so important.

The initial report findings as reported by CNN show that "Navy: Some SEALs photos show approved tactics."

Let me know when a SEAL cuts somebody's head off and broadcasts it to the world for propoganda!
