Anxious. Powerless.

The soldiers involved in roughing up the Iraqi guy on camera are from my son's regiment. At the moment the whole business is at the stage where reporters have to keep using the word "alleged", and there are doubts (not very strong I'd say) about the authenticity of the pictures. Even so the newspapers are saying that arrests are imminent.

I haven't heard from my son in months and I've no idea whether this business touches him in any way. I feel pretty anxious watching the story unfold.
