05/06/2004 Entry: "More Abu Ghriab horrors"

"It also included an allegation from one detainee that a male juvenile had been raped by a translator: 'They covered all the doors with sheets. I heard the screaming... and the female soldier was taking pictures.'"
Abuse At Abu Ghraib, 60 Minutes II, May 5, 2003

Yuck. And I thought women getting off on prison rape in the "Oz" TV show was sick. This is a whole new and horrible level. And YES, in light of photographic evidence and a scathing report by General Taguba, I believe this happened just like the other horrors in that prison.

There's no such thing as just one in these cases. So I must wonder how deep the rot goes.

Nothing against reservists, but war is obviously too serious to leave to armatures and part-time soldiers. And that being the case, it's way to serious for the armatures and full-time idiots in the White House.

I really don't think things in Iraq could be worse if our Military just left, just packed and left. Send money, send aid, and most importantly apologize, but get the fuck out of Iraq NOW.

And later in the same article:

Sgt. Frederick, a corrections officer when he is not on active duty, blames his predicament on his commanders.

Oh, well, that explains everything.

Fuck.

It was American soldiers serving as military police at Abu Ghraib who took these pictures. The investigation started when one soldier got them from a friend, and gave them to his commanders. 60 Minutes II has a dozen of these pictures, and there are many more pictures that show Americans, men and women in military uniforms, posing with naked Iraqi prisoners.

God bless this good soldier, and, YES, I know this is the majority and those are the troops I'm supporting.

"Our soldiers could be taken prisoner as well. And we expect our soldiers to be treated well by the adversary, by the enemy. And if we can't hold ourselves up as an example of how to treat people with dignity and respect We can't ask that other nations to that to our soldiers as well." General Kimmitt

Well, as soon as the United States begins adhering to the Geneva conventions again, we might be able to hope for that again, General.

Six months before he faced a court martial, Frederick sent home a video diary of his trip across the country. Frederick, a reservist, said he was proud to serve in Iraq. He seemed particularly well-suited for the job at Abu Ghraib. Hes a corrections officer at a Virginia prison, whose warden described Frederick to us as 'one of the best.'"

One of the best what?

it is very bad to do such things for a nation who claims a great nation and thought as the chairman of human rights. it is matter of sham for USA Govenrment.
