Hersh makes serious allegations

Today, Seymour Hersh will give a lecture at a conference of the ACLU. He is quoted in a few places as saying
Some of the worst things that happened that you don't know about. OK? Videos. There are women there. Some of you may have read that they were passing letters out, communications out to their men. This is at Abu Ghraib. ... The women were passing messages out saying please come and kill me because of what's happened ...
In addition, he will claim that children are being raped in Abu Ghraib. Continuing from above
and basically what happened is that those women who were arrested with young boys, children in cases that have been recorded. The boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has. They are in total terror. It's going to come out
At lease one instance of this will be investigated by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigative Division in under one month's time (entry 27 July 2004).
