Knowing the full history of Dr. Sell, people are understandably reluctant to take his word, at least initially. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported as early as September of 2000 that Court records did show that two videotapes exist that could show whether the abuse occurred.

John Ashcroft was fighting to expose the tapes in 2000 when he was a U.S. Senator. But those efforts ceased when he took control of the Justice Department, which was fighting to suppress the tapes.

Given that federal officials suggested in 2001 that the tapes never existed, some are especially curious about what the tapes reveal. Now, there is no doubt about the existence of the tapes. So Sell is not the only one with credibility problems.

Unlike top-notch reporters such as Carolyn Tuft of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reporters for the New York Times have not taken much interest in the content of those tapes. Perhaps they don?t want to associate themselves with an unsavory character like Dr. Sell. After all, he owns a lot of guns and is considered to be a racist. Not to mention evidence of his paranoia.

So instead the New York Times exposes tapes showing the abuse of Iraqi soldiers, many of whom have killed our troops. Though they don?t have the same rights as American citizens in our own prisons, they have been deemed worthy of 48 front page stories in the newspaper of record.

So how can Dr. Sell to win the hearts of the New York Times editors?

Maybe he can convert to Islam and kill a few Americans. Until then, he can wait hope.
