Child rape alleged at Abu Ghraib

JB

Seymour Hersh now claims that there is videotape of boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib prison. (link via Atrios). "The worst is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking," Hersh said. Ed Cone has more details.

Meanwhile, the Iraqis are trying to change the prison's image, with new locks and new coats of paint:

"The building itself isn't evil. It's just a question of who's running it," said its newly appointed warden Bassim, a prison employee for 25 years under Saddam.

So it would seem.


Comments:

Apparently Bush would disagree:

"A new Iraq will also need a humane, well-supervised prison system. Under the dictator, prisons like Abu Ghraib were symbols of death and torture. That same prison became a symbol of disgraceful conduct by a few American troops who dishonored our country and disregarded our values. America will fund the construction of a modern, maximum security prison. When that prison is completed, detainees at Abu Ghraib will be relocated. Then, with the approval of the Iraqi government, we will demolish the Abu Ghraib prison, as a fitting symbol of Iraq's new beginning"

In his point of view, apparently, at least as of the end of May, its not the people running it at all. The building's haunted or something. There is a lot of talk about mass graves in and around the prison, you know. I saw poltergeist. I know what's going on here.
