"Mom, can I have a dog?" "No." From MSNBC, courtesy of Zemblan patriot K.Z.:
Pfc. Lynndie England, the soldier seen in some of the most notorious photos with naked Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison, is a new mother.
Post officials said they do not know whether the baby was a boy or a girl, but the Baltimore Sun said it was a boy, citing an unnamed military source . . . .
England became a focal point of the scandal after the release of photos of her smiling and posing with nude prisoners stacked in a pyramid, pointing and flashing a thumb’s up, and holding a detainee on a dog leash.
The child’s father is Spc. Charles Graner Jr., England’s ex-boyfriend, who is also shown in the prison photographs, including one with a dead body packed in ice in a body bag.
According to Graner's attorney Guy Womack, his client was informed by e-mail Sunday of the birth.
Womack said he expected that Graner is "happy" that England gave birth without complications.
