In a video posted on YouTube , a young white man, claiming to be an American soldier who served as a guard at Abu Ghraib prison, boasts about having engaged in the torture of Iraqis and the rape of a 15-year-old girl. 1 “What’s the big deal in making a haji walk around like a dog and bark?” the young man asks his companion, who urges him to describe his experiences. Laughing, and saying that he did not expect anybody to be upset by his actions, the soldier/rapist describes wrapping plastic around “their necks until they start to choke”. Alleging that “the CIA showed us a lot of shit, man”, he continues, “As far as I am concerned, they are all guilty. They should have kicked Saddam Hussein out themselves. Instead we are doing the job. We are losing men … Anyone with a fucking rag on their head is fair game.”
