Child Molestation In Iraq: Did Hersch Mention This?
someone posted in a thread somewhere...

if this is true and photos emerge (or have they?) then things might get drastic.

1. I am tired of repeating this: today in Tweety Inhofe (repug
congresscritter) said it is OK to rape a 15-year-old girl to get information because we are at war with evil people. So there. Nothing phases them.

3. Her family will kill her if that happen.
She brought shame on her family. I read last day or two about a girl in Turkey who had been kidnapped and raped. Her father killed her because she shamed the family. Now that is logic. If one of our guys did that I would want him court Marshalled and she got killed I want in in irons for the rest of his life.

4. Yes. Hersch said on Charlie Rose
that things had taken place in the women's wing and/or the juvenile wing. He didn't elaborate.


Pay special attention to the part at the end where they discuss the WINGS where women and juveniles are being kept.

You can listen to the show here

8. Dismal. Dismal.Dismal.


The professor says if there are Iraqi women in the prison, it is all over.

Hersh says there is a whole wing for women and . . . juveniles.

The professor says that is catastrophic. It is all over for us. About ten days ago, there was a mortar/rocket(?) attack on the prison, in which the attackers targeted the inmates. The 'rumor' was that Iraqi women prisoners were being raped and tortured. Death would be preferable under some cultural/religious codes, so the attackers were attempting "mercy killings". The prof said that if this rumor turned out to be true or close, it was the end of the road.

Baer concurred and said it was a pivotal event in the course of the war, and that this would shorten the war/occupation(US).

Hersh said this was like My Lai in that it will erode Shrub's ability to keep the 'middle' people supporting the war, as with Nixon. A limit reached. Hersh said stay tuned for more.
