Army Report Details Iraqi Prisoner Abuse
MAY 7--With Donald Rumsfeld set this morning to apologize to lawmakers for failing to keep Congress apprised of abuses of Iraqi prisoners in U.S. custody, the Defense Secretary is expected to come under sharp questioning about findings in the military investigative report into conditions at the Abu Ghraib prison. Prepared by Army Maj. Gen. Antonio M. Taguba, the 53-page document details mistreatment of prisoners held in the section of the lockup where some inmates were interrogated. The classified Taguba report, a copy of which you'll find below, concluded that soldiers "committed egregious acts and grave breaches of international law" at Abu Ghraib, where detainees were subjected to assorted sexual and psychological degradations--some of which were photographed by Army jailers.
Due to the length of the Taguba report, we're making it available as a PDF file. So just click here to download the bombshell document.
