Ron Paul Viral Abu Ghraib Ad

I know this is a "lefty blog" and all that implies, and I don't agree with Ron Paul on much, but it is refreshing to find a Republican candidate who doesn't endorse torture (er, enhanced interrogation techniques.)

I am a member of a large lawyer Internet group. So far Paul has received more positive endorsements from members of that pretty independent bunch than any of the announced Republican (or Democratic) candidates.

This is a viral ad that seems to be making the rounds. For Republicans, and I can only assume the people who made it are Republicans, to tie President Bush and the Bush Administration directly to Abu Ghraib is shocking. It is R rated, and it isn't pretty, so beware. Again the ad is viral, and nobody, let alone Paul, takes responsibility. It is not endorsed by anybody associated with this blog. As far as I know, neither is Ron Paul.

UPDATE: YouTube suggests that somebody named rpin2008 (whoever that is) claims responsibility.
