i browsed some other search engines and all of them do show torture images as results (especially after turning off "offensive content filtering) - but only after cutting the proposed sentence down to "iraq torture america"... therefor i am quite sure that the lack of results in the first is technically induced.

however: googles way of rating is surely not fully public and yes it is human-biased (how else?).

i would even vote for algorithmic ethics, since literacy is again targeted only on the symptomatic side. when teaching computer scientists i see a lot of people not aware (and not trained to be so) of the effects of their doing in a public programmed space, where a strong decoupling between social implications/effects on the long run and technical actions happens.
