there have been blogland rumors of this for a while; it's been reported in the european press (der spiegel) and the irc and unicef have released reports about children imprisoned in iraq without contact with family.
there was even a hint of this when the photos at abu ghraib first emerged and senators spoke of unmentionable crimes. well, now we know what these unmentionable crimes were.
there's nothing in our corporate press (other than hersh's reporting) to follow up on this story.
our silence is our shame.
