Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

While I'm senseless with shock, let me quote for you a couple of findings from the report by Maj. Gen. Antonio M. Taguba, who investigated abuse of prisoners by members of the 800th Military Police Brigade at the Abu Ghraib Prison in Baghdad. I'm sure it's all over the blogosphere by now, but I can't help but noting a few down.

- Breaking chemical lights and pouring the phosphoric liquid on detainees;

- Sodomizing a detainee with a chemical light and perhaps a broom stick;

- Forcing groups of male detainees to masturbate themselves while being photographed and videotaped;

- A male MP guard having sex with a female detainee.

There's no context, but that last one seems like a euphemism for rape.
