U.S. soldiers sodomize Iraqi boys

According to Seymour Hersh (you know, the Pulitzer Prize winner investigative reporter who broke the My Lai story in 1970 and the Abu Ghraib prison abuse story earlier this year), that is not hyperbole. There is video of U.S. soldiers at Abu Ghraib sodomizing young Iraqi boys. Donald Rumsfeldd alluded to it during his testimony before the Armed Services Committee in May.

Hersh disclosed this during an ACLU speech last week. Here's video of the event. It's actually the whole event which is waycool because Sandra Tsing Loh is the first speaker. She is relating how she was fired from public radio for saying "FUCK" in one of her monologues. The "FUCK" was supposed to be bleeped out by the engineer, but he missed the edit. It was a pretty innocuous and contextual uttering of "FUCK" too, in a story having to do with Bette Midler. So the "FUCK" was actually a hommage.

Not the I-hope-you-die usage Dick Cheney intended on the Senate floor. During the "class" photo.

Watch the video of the speeches your damn self. Hersh's mention of Abu Ghraib is right around 1:30:00 -- that's one hour and a half into the stream.

Afterwards, Greg Proops performs.
