Child Rape Follow-Up

Xeni Jardin of BoingBoing has a couple of reports of prisoners who claimed to witness rape in the Abu Ghraib prisons; pdfs of the documents (provided to the Taguba inquiry and hosted by the Washington Post are here and here.

These are stories from prisoners, not the videotapes Sy Hersh claims to have seen. The witness's stories may not be accurate. Even if they are, the victims may not have quite been children--though that would be no excuse.
