US soldiers’ alleged rape, sexual abuse in Iraq

gholami20090529091414187 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.
Press TV could not independently confirm the authenticity of the images.

    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.”

    The same must have happened to so many other men and women . Afia sadiquee is one of them…who knows how many more men and women(handed over by parvez musharaf ) would have been humiliated like this.
    Today no one on earth can justify American attcak on Iraq.They could not find any weapons of Mass destruction…then why were so many people killed,raped and humiliated.What was the objective…the only objective was to get control of oil.

    Today if anything happens to a women in Pakistan or other islamic country,Western media and their supporters make a big issue out of it,but no one talks openly about these men and women who were Raped/ humiliated in Iraq for no reason.I think as a muslim nation we should feel the pain of whole muslim ummah.

    no doubt American’s are bastards but he can’t do any thing if we dont provide him chances.
    just think what’s going on in our country and what we are doing for own.nothing and why we are thinking some one ll come an help our country r our people’s
    we have to do some thing for own self and our Muslim community.
    just think if American r any no-Muslim wer in our jail than what ll happend.
