Innocent Children Jailed and Abused
Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 04:53 PM by agentkgb
According to an article by the Washington Times, a number of children are being held in detention centers in Iraq without charges. There have been reports of "physical and other abuse," according to a State Department official. The coalition says it's "not our urgent business." How are innocent children being held and possibly tortured not urgent business?
The official also said that "in the process of combing Iraq for bad guys, field commanders, for one reason or another, and at times indiscriminately, have confined many men and women without any specific charges or reasons that can be remembered or recorded."
How is this liberating Iraq?

1. I wonder how long it will be before the story breaks...
...that we're running child brothels in Iraq?

Free enterprise! It's the American way!

2. Who says it will break?
Corporate media's not exactly going to feature this prominently in their news, at least not western corporate media.
