Releasing the caged monster

Army National Guard Sgt. Leigh Flanigan stood rooted to the spot, eyes glued to the screen in the Tactical Operations Center (TOC). She watched as two men were being chain-sawed to death. But this wasn't another grindhouse movie - it was a confiscated DVD recording of two captured Afghanistan insurgents

3 Drinks: All decked out for summer

Olympia's Animal Fire Theatre and Hamlet
