US soldiers abused 12 year Iraqi child at Iraqi prison
says he was tortured at the prison, based west of Baghdad, while held
there for 54 days.
Mr al-Baz was arrested when reporting clashes between Mujahideen and
coalition forces in November.
He said: "They brought a 12-year-old girl into our cellblock late at
night. Her brother was a prisoner in the other cells.
"She was naked and screaming and calling out to him as they beat her.
Her brother was helpless and could only hear her cries. This affected
all of us because she was just a child.
He also said that a father and his 15-year-old son were tortured in
front of his cell.
He said: "They made the son carry two jerry cans full of water. An
American soldier had a stick and when he stopped, he would beat him.
"He collapsed so they stripped him and poured cold water over him.
They brought a man who was wearing a hood. They pulled it off. The
son was shocked to see it was his father and collapsed.
"When he recovered, he now saw his father dressed in women's
underwear and the Americans laughing at him.
Mr al-Baz claims the guards at the prison were keen to take
photographs of the abuse and turned it into a competition.
"They were enjoying taking photographs of the torture. There was a
daily competition to see who could take the most gruesome picture.
"The winner's photo would be stuck on a wall and also put on their
laptop computers as a screensaver.
"I had a good opinion of the Americans but since my time in prison,
I've changed my mind. In Iraq we still have no freedom or democracy.
They are so cruel to us."
I Guess he still doesnt understand what democrasy and freedom results
in. may Allah open his eyes and see that democrasy is evil and the
freedom it promises is evil and something we could well do without.
It is the freedom to rape and not suffer a lashing or the death
penalty according to Sharia.
The freedom bugger little boys and not be killed,
The freedom to fortnicate and adulterate without being punished.
The freedom to get drunk and not know diffrence between ones wife and
