CAIR: FL Website 'Swapped War Photos for Porn'
Catherine Elsworth, Telegraph, 10/11/05

The operator of a website which allegedly allowed American soldiers to post gruesome photos of Iraqi war casualties for access to pornography has been arrested on obscenity charges.

Christopher Wilson faces more than 300 charges relating to the distribution of obscene material.

The charges are not connected to the grisly war pictures which appeared on the site, only its sexual context.

A military investigation of the site was launched after complaints from groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which wrote to Donald Rumsfeld, the defence secretary.

Several of the photos showed men wearing what appeared to be US uniforms, standing over charred corpses and mutilated bodies.
