I haven't seen this linked to yet at dKos. There is an important new post at Sadly, No!
about a translation of a German TV report
(in German) regarding abuse by US forces of imprisoned Iraqi children. I recall Sy Hersh hinting darkly about something like this several weeks ago.
From his cell in the adult's section he hears a girl of maybe 12 years of age crying. Later he found out that her brother was held in a cell on the second floor of the prison. Once or twice he says, he saw the girl himself. [...] "She called out her brother's name. She was beaten, she cried out "they took off my clothes, they poured water on me."" --Suhaib Badr-Addin Al-Baz
"Over the course of 19 visits in 6 different detention facilities from January to May of this year, we counted 107 children. These facilities were under the control of coalition troops." --Florian Westphal, ICRC.
The ICRC found minors in both Qasr and Abu Ghraib. Two international organizations confirm, independently, that coalition troops have jailed Iraqi children. But information directly from the prisons remains unavailable. UNICEF was not able to visit the children's prison in Baghdad:
"UNICEF asked to visit this facility in July 2003, but access was denied." --UNICEF
Truly horrible. This needs to get disseminated far and wide. Why the hell do we have to rely on the foreign press to do the job our press corps should be doing?
