New Abu Ghraib investigation into Youtube vid [VIDEO]

The video to the right, which contains a disturbing message from a man who claims to have been a guard at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, was removed from Youtube recently for violating the terms of agreement. It's easy to see why.




According to IraqSlogger, an investigation into the validity of the obscured man's claims of torture, rape and abuse has begun. Though the Army's investigative affairs division isn't providing details they do say they're taking it "seriously," according to Christina Davidson's report, which goes on to point out that there have been a number of false claims of both soldier and insurgent atrocities.

Here's one of the most disturbing passages:

No, they didn't have chick insurgents.

As far as I'm concerned, they're all guilty. You know what? They should have kicked Saddam out themselves. Instead, we're there doing the fucking job. We're losing guys.....

Were those people in the World Trade Center guilty? No. Fuck them. They fucked us, so now we're fucking them. Fuck them, dude, anyone with a fucking rag on their head is fair game.

....girl, she was probably like 15 years old. Yeah, she was hot dude. The body on that girl, yeah, really tight. You know, hadn't been touched yet. She was fucking prime. So....

One of the guys started pimping her out for 50 bucks a shot. I think at the end of the day, you know, he'd made like 500 bucks before she hung herself.
