It seems strange that any recordings were made at all, given that they'd obviously be discovered later. Even more odd is that the government would issue denials if they had actually seen the recordings - a simple 'no comment' would have been a better statement.

My theory is that the recordings were made for shits and giggles. "Hey, look at me sodomizing this Iraqi kid!" People who are fucked up enough to do such things are certainly fucked up enough to record it and watch it later.

We already knew they took videos and pictures while they raped civilian women in captured territories. Still, raping kids is sick. It shows the real villains of the story.

soldiers have been raping kids and women for centuries. Does it really shock you that it still happens today? I would put my money down that the rate of raping has actually declined since before. Progress!

That is the most depressing form of progress around I think... *sigh*

@Thelevellers: progress is progress. You can only try to make it faster but it will happen in its own time.
