WashPost Has New Abu Ghraib Pics, Videos, Gruesome New Details
The Washington Post reported explicit details of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib that go well beyond previously published reports. The Post has published new pictures and a video taken from the Iraqi prison.
According to the Post, prisoners were "ridden like animals, sexually fondled by female soldiers and forced to retrieve their food from toilets."
The Post reported numerous instances of rape, in which prisoners were sodomized with nightsticks and chemical lights, and one instance in which a translator raped a boy as young as 15. The latter case was photographed, a detainee told the Post.
In instances, a father and son were imprisoned naked together, and prisoners reported being assaulted for inquiring about the time so that they could pray. Detainees were made to crawl on broken glass and cuffed to bars, where they were left hanging for hours.
