US soldiers alleged rape, sexual abuse in Iraq

This Post contains Sexual Contents Viewers Discretion is Advised could not independently confirm the authenticity of the images.

Photos obtained by Press TV reveal alleged sexual harassment and rape of Iraqi prisoners at US-run Abu Ghraib detention center by American soldiers.

The alleged pictures illustrate American soldiers raping and sexually harassing Iraqi detainees.

Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist from Washington, told Press TV that there was a lot to explain with respect to the photos.

“That is exactly what was taking place in Abu Ghraib and that information came to me from many many different sources some of whom actually stationed in Abu Ghraib at the time,” Madsen said.

The allegations that these photos are fake were made by neoconservative media, He added.

To clarify the issue, Madsen said when some of the disputed photos were randomly published by the Boston Globe in 2004; the paper came under attack as part of neoconservative propaganda.

He also ruled out the reports claiming that the photos were taken from pornographic movies.This is while the Pentagon has rejected that the photographs even existed.

On Thursday, Antonio Taguba, a retired US general who conducted an inquiry into the abuses at the US-run prison in Iraq, sent shockwaves around the world by explaining about the heinous pictures in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

“These pictures show torture, abuse, rape and every indecency,” the British newspaper quoted Taguba as saying without releasing any of the images.

The daily added that one of the pictures depicted a male American soldier apparently raping a female detainee, while another showed a male translator raping a male prisoner. Another photo showed how a female detainee was forced to disrobe and expose her breasts.

There were also photos showing US soldiers sexually assaulting the prisoners with objects like truncheons, wires and phosphorescent tubes.

US President Barack Obama had promised to release some 2,000 photographs from prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan; however, later on he backtracked on his pledge and blocked the release of the photographs.

Taguba said that the gruesome nature of the photos was to such extent that he could understand why Obama is reluctant to authorize their release.

Brigadier General Janis Karpinski said to the Washington Post that Military Intelligence, rather than the Military Police, dictated the treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison. "The prison, and that particular cellblock where the events took place, were under the control of the Military Intelligence command," Brigadier General Karpinski said to the Washington Post Saturday night in a telephone interview from her home in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Brigadier General Karpinski, who commanded the 800th Military Police Brigade, described a high-pressure Military Intelligence and CIA command that prized successful interrogations. A month before the alleged abuses and rapes occurred, she said, a team of CIA, Military Intelligence officers and private consultants under the employ of the US government came to Abu Ghraib. "Their main and specific mission was to give the interrogators new techniques to get more information from detainees," she said.

Today, new photographs were sent to La Voz de Aztlan from confidential sources depicting the shocking rapes of two Iraqi women by what are purported to be US Military Intelligence personnel and private US mercenaries in military fatigues. It is now known that hundreds of these photographs had been in circulation among the troops in Iraq. The graphic photos were being swapped between the soldiers like baseball cards.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, one Mexican-American soldier told La Voz de Aztlan, "Maybe the officers didn't know what was going on, but everybody else did. I have seen literally hundreds of these types of pictures." Many of the pictures was destroyed last September when the luggage of soldiers was searched as they left Iraq, he said An investigation, led by Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba, identified two military intelligence officers and two civilian contractors for the Army as key figures in the abuse cases at the Abu Ghraib prison. In an internal report on his findings, Major General Taguba said he suspected that the four were "either directly or indirectly responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib and strongly recommended disciplinary action."

The Taguba report states that "military intelligence interrogators and other U.S. Government Agency interrogators actively requested that Military Police guards set physical and mental conditions for favorable interrogation of witnesses." The report noted that one civilian interrogator, a contractor from a company called CACI International and attached to the 205th Military Intelligence Brigade, "clearly knew his instructions" to the Military Police equated to physical and sexual abuse. It is not known whether these instructions included, or led to, the raping of Iraqi women detainees as well.

When I was at abroad & had worked with them/Non Muslims as I was quiet impressed with some of the very well behaved non-Muslims then all of a sudden I used to get astonished when arrived on this line of AHADIS =”Before Judgment day Muslims will find out every single Kufar(s) & would kill on spot.”= Now the reason has understood why this prediction was taken place.”

Today the Iraqi Peoples then tomorrow even they don’t leave your daughter US peoples.

So, believe in Quran not the Bible.
Because Bible is now corrupted according to Look magazine 1952, they are more than 20000 errors in Bible.
One error i can give the reference According to Genesis Chapter 1 “in the concept of Universe creation prior to SUN Vegetation was created” I don’t know how the plants will survive with out Photo Synthesis (SUN light)..But Quran says that Sun is created first hen the Plants which is Proved today.

Not only this they are so many error in Bible so only Christian them self don’t believe it we can see the example above US soldiers what they are doing and US Christian’s are watching.
IF the same happen to their daughters also they don’t feel i hope they simply watch ..
Where is humanity?
Why the US soldiers wont feel that they are raping their Daughters and Mothers..Since Bible and Quran also says that All the humans are from same Couple Adam and Eve Peace be up on them.

I ask you whether this type of action raping the Mothers and Daughters happened in Muslim Soldiers like Arabs etc.

Ask Red Lee (BBC reporter) who was caught by peoples in Afghanistan and after released by them she embraced Islam..
Whether they raped her?
That is the true religion which is all human kind which is Islam..

Allah says in Quran that On resurrection they he will take complete Account what people are doing.
I still pray to the Christian to know the truth and embrace Islam and do not forget the Hell fire.
Whose fuel is Men and stones.

Talking about Bible please read it and understand that how many errors it is having…….

“Innadeena indallahil Islam” 3:19

There is only one way in front of almighty God that is peace acquired by submitting our will to GOD which is (Islam) in Arabic.

So only the Christianity is just a bogus since people don’t stop crimes mostly US Christians

Christian don’t forget According to book of Hebrew 9:27
“It is ordained unto all men once to die after that the Judgment” and that Judgment Day
Satan’s like US soldiers and Us People who are enjoying this will caught up and thrown to Hell.

This is so stupid, US soldiers do not even wear that type of uniform in Iraq, they wear the desert print before they ship off. Second it is a porn video US soldiers do not wear face paint in the desert because it is pointless because of the dust floating around.

eir own religion try to find fault in others. The terrorism all over the world and the people pursuing it are none other than Muslims. i ask the this is the teaching the Quran propagate. In India the Indians are suffering the teachings of Quran and you should go and ask those poor Indian who are suffering for no fault of their own.

Christians and following Christianity are two different things that all muslims should know,being born in Christian family and following teachings of Bible is different. Criticizing Bible shows the weakness of Quran as one tries to to find fault with good things only due to zealousness or due to weakness of their won. it is better that muslims know their own religion rather than trying to find fault in others. The terrorism all over the world and the people pursuing it are none other than Muslims. I ask is this the teaching the Quran propagatea and is Terrorism the gift of Quran or the misunderstandings of short sighted fundamentalist muslims? It is adviseable Muslims first understand Quran.For knowledge of those who lack it Bible was written before Quran and Quran has many books common from Bible. In India the Indians are suffering the teachings of Quran and you should go and ask those Indian who are suffering for no fault of their own.

At first i was appalled to see pictures like this and the others from abu gharab, fake or not. It has been so long since 9/11 its hard to remember how sad/angry i was that day. I just watched a video of the people jumping out of the north tower 1300 ft to there death and realized, call me a piece of shit. I really don care what happens to these people. sorry

complete bullshit to bring up 9/11. The officials even said that they never directly linked osama bin laden with the attack. think of how many conflicting stories, lies, apparent random suicide of witnesses, amongst other things have been documented concerning that. Only the most infantile sheep still don't understand what that was about. I saw the porn video of this, and I can tell you it was a near match. "near" being key. It looked like an incredible professional coverup. Fortunately I'm an analyst and I saw they missed certain positions etc, but it was a gov cover for sure. This is real. And think if they're willing to let this kinda stuff get out every once in awhile. Imagine the stuff that is kept at bay and maintained ts. You have no idea. But whatever leaks is always the tip of the iceburg. Lets hope the titanic hits it
