From Norway:

"Norwegian authorities reacted with shock and disgust Tuesday to a documentary on German TV that American soldiers allegedly have been holding children in prisons in Iraq, and abusing them as well. The Norwegians joined the Red Cross and Amnesty International in calling for an immediate end to the abuse, and release of the underage prisoners, some of whom are as young as 12 years.
In one case, a girl around age 15 was said to have been shoved up against a wall by a group of male soldiers who proceeded to manhandle her. They then started ripping off her clothes, and she was half-naked before military police broke in."
Good thing we have an independent liberal media to investigate things like this, isn't it?

Oh, wait. That was a paper in Norway. Reporting on a documentary on German TV.

As the child torture story starts to break, we are going to find ourselves more and more isolated. Cheney, Bush, and the rest of the cabal need to be sent to the Hague.
