"Britain's Abu Ghraib"


Close your eyes and think of England. And not Lynndie, either. From a BBC account:

Nine charges against the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers soldiers include forcing prisoners to simulate sex acts at a Basra aid camp in May 2003….

The photographs released by the court martial include a picture of two naked Iraqi men simulating anal sex with their thumbs raised to the camera and a photograph of two Iraqi men simulating oral sex.

The offences the three soldiers are accused of are alleged to have taken place at the aid camp, known as Camp Bread Basket, on or around 15 May 2003, weeks after coalition troops had ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's regime.

Whole thing here.
