Classified Evidence: US Soldiers Raped Boys in Front of Their Mothers
Wars often have some dark stories hidden and censored. These stories cannot be imagined for the people who are not affected
One particular case is a horrific video where U.S. soldiers raping young boys in front of their mothers.
According to Seymour Hersh (reputable journalist, investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner) the video took place in an American torture prison in Abu Ghraib – Iraq.
Hersh is fighting for the video to reach the public eyes so they can see the real picture of a war. He says that the video will probably make it in public long after the Bush administration is forgotten.
In the statement that he gave to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), he offered some insight into the Pentagon’s secret video recording:
“Debating about it, ummm … Some of the worst things that happened you don’t know about, okay? Videos, um, there are women there. Some of you may have read that they were passing letters out, communications out to their men.
This is at Abu Ghraib … The women were passing messages out saying “Please come and kill me, because of what’s happened” and basically what happened is that those women who were arrested with young boys, children in cases that have been recorded.
The boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has. They are in total terror. It’s going to come out.
“It’s impossible to say to yourself how did we get there? Who are we? Who are these people that sent us there? When I did My Lai I was very troubled like anybody in his right mind would be about what happened.
I ended up in something I wrote saying in the end I said that the people who did the killing were as much victims as the people they killed because of the scars they had, I can tell you some of the personal stories by some of the people who were in these units witnessed this.
I can also tell you written complaints were made to the highest officers and so we’re dealing with an enormous massive amount of criminal wrongdoing that was covered up at the highest command out there and higher, and we have to get to it and we will. We will. You know there’s enough out there, they can’t (Applause). …. So it’s going to be an interesting election year.”
In another speech at the University of Chicago Mr. Hersh stated:
“You haven’t begun to see evil… horrible things done to children of women prisoners, as the cameras run.”
Moreover, the horrible cases like these are just too many to mention all.
Here is another testimony of an actual detainee, Kasim Mehaddi Hilas. He did a report for the Washington Times:
This is the translated testimony of Mr. Kasim Mehaddi Hilas
(WARNING; this testimony is unedited and not for children):
“I saw [name blacked out] fucking a kid, his age would be about 15-18 years. The kid was hurting very bad and they covered all the doors with sheets. Then when I heard the screaming I climbed the door because on top it wasn’t covered and I saw [blacked out], who was wearing the military uniform putting his dick in the little kid’s ass, I couldn’t see the face of the kid because his face wasn’t in front of the door. And the female soldier was taking pictures.”
Another equally repulsive case was when several American soldiers gang raped a 14-year-old Iraqi girl. Her name was Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janab. After the horrible act, they murder her with the whole family and set them on fire to cover up the crime.
When authorities investigated the case, the soldiers told them is it was the work of Sunni “terrorists”.
Finally, the crime was revealed when a soldier broke down in a psychological evaluation.
For those people who support any war, most likely were never affected by one and don’t know how much evil it produces. However, most of our soldiers are brave and good men and women, but sometimes war twists the mind of people.
