Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Via Daily Kos: at an ACLU conference earlier in the month, Seymour Hersh stood up and told people exactly what was in the material from Abu Ghraib that the US government refuses to release:

Seymour Hersh says the US government has videotapes of boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

"The worst is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking," the reporter told an ACLU convention last week. Hersh says there was "a massive amount of criminal wrongdoing that was covered up at the highest command out there, and higher."

My disgust knows no bounds. After all the noise the US has made about Saddam's rape-rooms, and how that ended the day Iraq ws liberated - and then like the disappeareances and torture, they've simply replaced them with their own.

No charges, no prosecutions. The new boss really is the same as the old boss.
