A German TV magazine called 'Report Mainz' recently aired accusations from
the International Red Cross, to the effect that over 100 children are
imprisoned in U.S.- controlled detention centers, including Abu Ghraib.
Seymour Hersh, the New Yorker reporter who first broke the story of torture
at Abu Ghraib, recently spoke at an ACLU convention. He has seen the
pictures and the videotapes the American media has not yet shown. "The boys
were sodomized with the cameras rolling, and the worst part is the
soundtrack, of the boys shrieking," said Hersh. "And this is your government
