Officer Accused of Abu Ghraib Shower Cam Capt. Leo V. Merck, 32
A former National Guard (search) commander is accused of taking naked pictures of female U.S. soldiers while they showered last year at the Abu Ghraib (search) prison in Iraq, a newspaper reported.

Capt. Leo V. Merck, 32, of Fremont, Calif., faces a court martial, the Contra Costa Times reported in Wednesday editions.

The Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad (search) is at the center of a scandal involving photographs of U.S. Army soldiers subjecting naked Iraqi prisoners to humiliating treatment.

Three female soldiers from the 870th Military Police Company from Pittsburg, Calif., filed the accusations against Merck in November, National Guard officials told the paper Tuesday.

we have seen was only the tip of the iceberg,

Regretfully this is proving to be true.
