Is this a way of saying, "Don't criticize the US government since we are so far removed from barbism that our government wouldn't think of doing bad things"? I don't think that's your point, but that's the message I get when I hear people talk like the italics. Absolutely North Korea, Iraq, Cambodia, Cuba are/were horrible places with evil rulers, but that doesn't excuse conducted conducted by my goverment in my name. I don't want my government committing even misdemeanors, if by misdemeanors you mean holding people (including American citizens) without due process, sending suspects to be tortured by foreign intelligence services, or state sponsored murder (the death penalty). And, being a pacifist, I would call going to war in Afghanistan and Iraq much more than a misdemeanor.

I want perspective. The picture of Lyndie England is way to ingrained in people's minds. What needs to be ingrained there is mass graves full of bones.

To put an economic perspective on it, the media is reducing the marginal cost to news consumers of finding out information about (say) Abu Ghraib, without reducing the cost of finding out about (say) Srebenica. This is what a manager does when they want to sell one product rather than another. Why do news managers have Abu Ghraib news on sale?

Home market bias?
