Meet the new jailers-- Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad is at the centre of fresh abuse allegations just a week after it was handed over to Iraqi authorities, with claims that inmates are being tortured by their new captors.
Mass executions, torture again, etc. How bad is it when the inmates plead for us

(link is an .rm file, the bit about mothers and children starts about 1:31
), according to journalist Seymour Hersh
who reports seeing unreleased footage
from Abu Ghraib. The question remains unanswered as to why he'll talk about it in a speech, but not publish it in the New Yorker
. It's also worth asking, if these allegations are true, who else has seen this footage and why is it not being reported?
