America's Shame - New Allegations of Prisoner Abuse by US Armed Forces

Human Rights watch has just published a report on alleged abuses at Camp Mercury - a forward operating location outside of Fallujah staffed by the 82nd Airborne. This is horrendous and makes Abu Gharaib pale in comparison.

I dont believe this is enemy propoganda out to embarass America....this is testimony from American Soldiers who were so disgusted with the behavior of their comrades in arms that they reported this abuse to HRW. Most of this happened in 2003 and 2004.

With the rest of the nation focused on Katrina and Rita its likely this story wont get the publicity it deserves. If this doesnt cause Bush to ask for Rumsie's resignation then nothing will.
