CNN: U.S. probes allegations of Afghan prison abuse
Keep watching those Bush polls.

"The U.S.-led military coalition in Afghanistan confirmed Saturday that a second investigation has been initiated into allegations of detainee abuse at the hands of U.S. jailers."

"On Wednesday, the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan announced that the military was investigating the alleged mistreatment of an Afghan police colonel while in the custody of coalition forces.

The officer says he was stripped naked, photographed, kicked and subjected to sexual taunting while being held by coalition forces in August, according to an embassy statement.

Barno, speaking at a policy forum in Washington, said a newspaper's report of mistreatment of the Afghan police colonel in U.S. custody was the "first indication" he had of any problems among detainees."

1. One can hope that the mistreatment of prisoners
by whatever name or names the bu$h administration wants to call them, leads to charges of War Crimes against the civilians and stars at the top.
