Weapon's Planted on Iraqi Teens
"The war on terror goes on."

A while back, a U.S. citizen working in Iraq sent me several photographs he obtained from a soldier in Iraq. Apparently, they had been passed along between several sources before reaching me. I felt that the pictures were particularly controversial and newsworthy, in that they appear to show U.S. soldiers planting weapons on Iraqi teenagers

The pictures are very tragic. I'll publish seven of them here, but you can see the rest on the original sites.

The first two show how the weapons were planted after this Iraqi boy was killed by the US army:





The next five pictures show how the US soldiers left two Iraqi kids to bleed (maybe to death) while planting weapons around them, stripping their clothes, and hand-cuffing one of them. You can notice the shadow of the US soldier that took the pictures in the first image...

1. Pictures aren't showing up
If you want, email them to me and I'll post them. I've got bandwidth to burn.

3. I recall a talk by Robert Fisk last year saying that US soldiers
shoot up a bunch of Iraqi teenagers by accident, then to make it look like they killed terrorists they plant weapons around their corpses.

Here's the link and blog (Raed in the Middle)where the photos are posted. The photos are posted on June 26th under the title " US War Crime in Baqouba"


These are amazing photos. I wonder why our US media refused to carry this story?? I should warn you that theyre a bit graphic..
