Of the many atrocities the U.S. government censored from the official declassification of the Torture Report, was an horrific video that was never made public which exposed U.S. soldiers raping young boys in front of their mothers.
According to reputable journalists, including investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner, Seymour Hersh, the video was recorded at the notorius American controlled Abu Ghraib torture facility in Iraq.
Hersh hopes the video will be made public. How long this could be though, he doesn’t precisely know. In all probability, it will only happen long after the offending Bush administration has been long forgotten. In this 2014 statement he made with the ACLU, he offered some insight into the Pentagon’s secret video recording:
“Debating about it, ummm … Some of the worst things that happened you don’t know about, okay? Videos, um, there are women there. Some of you may have read that they were passing letters out, communications out to their men. This is at Abu Ghraib … The women were passing messages out saying ‘Please come and kill me, because of what’s happened’ and basically what happened is that those women who were arrested with young boys, children in cases that have been recorded. The boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has. They are in total terror. It’s going to come out.
“It’s impossible to say to yourself how did we get there? Who are we? Who are these people that sent us there? When I did My Lai I was very troubled like anybody in his right mind would be about what happened. I ended up in something I wrote saying in the end I said that the people who did the killing were as much victims as the people they killed because of the scars they had, I can tell you some of the personal stories by some of the people who were in these units witnessed this. I can also tell you written complaints were made to the highest officers and so we’re dealing with an enormous massive amount of criminal wrongdoing that was covered up at the highest command out there and higher, and we have to get to it and we will. We will. You know there’s enough out there, they can’t (Applause). …. So it’s going to be an interesting election year.”
In a later speech made by Hersh at the University of Chicago, he announced that:
“You haven’t begun to see evil… horrible things done to children of women prisoners, as the cameras run.”
Hersh, however, is not the only witness testimony available.
Here, likewise, you can find a translated testimony provided by an actual detainee, Kasim Mehaddi Hilas as reported by the Washington Times;
(WARNING; this testimony is unedited and not for children):
“I saw [name blacked out] fucking a kid, his age would be about 15-18 years. The kid was hurting very bad and they covered all the doors with sheets. Then when I heard the screaming I climbed the door because on top it wasn’t covered and I saw [blacked out], who was wearing the military uniform putting his dick in the little kid’s ass, I couldn’t see the face of the kid because his face wasn’t in front of the door. And the female soldier was taking pictures.”
The more we learn about the U.S. government and military, the more we realize that everything we’ve been told to believe has been lies. America is not the “good guy,” as we have been told to believe as this is not the only horror story we have been told of. In an equally repulsive incident, several American soldiers gang raped a 14-year-old Iraqi girl named Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janab, murdered her family and then set her body on fire in an effort to cover up the crime. When they were caught, they told the local authorities it was the work of Sunni “terrorists”. They were exposed, however, after a soldier broke down in a psychological evaluation.
The American war machine has left a trail of blood and destruction in its path. For most of its history, through the control of television it has covered these crimes up. But with internet today, they are finding it is not so easy.
